I just got off the phone with the dealership and they said that there is hole in the side of the motor. He said that it looks like the connecting rod shot through the side of cylinder 3. He said the only time he's ever seen that is with a miss shift or if the motor has taken in water, both of which didn't happen. I asked him if he could run a diagnostic on it to see what the revs were at when it went and he said that he couldn't do it. The only people that do that are the reps from BMW and that's only if they are going to cover it under warranty.

I just called the dealership back and asked if they would talk to BMW NA and see if there is anyway they will cover it under warranty. He said I should hear back tomorrow. A motor blowing at 64,000 miles just doesn't seem right to me.

Any advice on contacting BMW NA myself would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all the replies.
