Especially if you smell fuel! Pull over and turn it off ASAP!

Sounds like Injector stuck wide open, heard of this happening on injectors a few times, makes me want to change all mine to the new style, but at 1200 bucks it is hard to do..

if it were me I would NEVER mention any engine related mods, as they can totally use that against you and make it very difficult for you to get money on your loss.

We are talking about an insurance company and NOT BMW trying to deny a claim. How would my insurance know my screenname? How would they know I am on E90post? I didn't tell the insurance anything other than interior/exterior upgrades! Of which they said they would reimburse if I have receipts.

They know they have an expensive claim from an engine fire.
They know its a 335i, you put up pictures.

Be real, take it down.
Or regret reading this later.

Because they don't like and would not just cut out a big a$$ check like that without doing deep investigations.

MGM I'm the one who posted over in the Florida forum. Trust me when I say adjusters are pretty crafty. I work for a small/medium sized insurance company and our adjusters are trained pretty well to track down information. Every six months they take a class on "cyber tactics" to investigate claims. In most cases claims are pretty straight forward, but we have an SIU division just for the "out of the norm" claims and car fires fall under that category since they are not that common. A large majority of them end up as insurance fraud. Again... I am just trying to help. Your insurance company may not even care and will just write you a check, but in that slim chance that they do, any mention of modifications to your car can open the door for an investigation.

You are right they can't identify you by your screen name, but there are pictures of your car burning which I would definitely consider taking down. You can't see your license plate clearly, but your car is pretty identifiable in the pics and also the surrounding area.

Just trying to help that's all.

Bro at the end of the day it's your life... Ur car.. And you have to deal with it. We are just trying to help by giving advice that may potentially save ur butt in the future...

I had a friend who had a supra fire and lost an insurance claim bc he posted Picts on a supra forum with details of what happen.. and we have no freaking clue how they found out he was on a random Internet supra forum...

Anyway- boosted90 post pretty much summarizes everything that could potentially happen..

Good luck with everything. Take it easy man
