UPDATE !! New e93 owner !! I drove it less than 40 miles and new engine neede ! :(

Let me start by saying that ive been in a lot of car forums and this is by far been the best !! thank you guys for that

My story:

Bought my 07 335i with 40k miles just over a month ago from a dealership in Florida ( one owner, very clean carfax, my dream car )
I live in Michigan and had to pay to get it transported here, I was like little boy with a new toy when it finally arrived ( my son's face was priceless when I put the top down, it has been very cold and snowing a lot so I parked it in my garage as this is just my "toy" and I have a DD.

Went to start it one day one day and it was misfiring ( I drove it less than 40 miles before this with no problems, it drove beautiful with a smile on my face). Mechanic friend said plugs and coils - so I went on here and thanks to you guys I was able to do it myself.

Injector #6 was stuck open dumping fuel ( I drove it maybe 10 miles like it hoping it would go away ), took car to local indy for a diagnose and new injector.

Today, local indy called telling me that it is running and not dumping anymore fuel but...... it is knocking, rod gone bad due fuel going into engine mixing with fuel. very sad day for me !

I drove my BMW for less than 40 miles, it is a beautiful car and I don't know what to do.. it was sold as is with no warranty ( didn't think I would need one even though I knew I would not mind to pay for maintenance )

Now, Im sitting here with a 25K loan and a 10k repair for a new motor!! It is a shame and im sad about it but I will get it back on the road one way or another !!

Thanks for listening.. I just needed to vent

Have you tried getting a second opinion from another shop?

If you're going to drop 10k on the motor and jb4, might as well drop rb turbos in it and get the full potential out the car.

Don't bother with any of that n54 nonsense and be the first person with an LSX swapped E93 335i. That'll never quit on you.

V8 or nothing, man.

I would contact the dealer that sold you the car and explain what happened after 40 miles of owning the car. I would see if there is anything they can do for you even with out warranty sounds like horrible timing either way sorry to hear it.

In all seriousness though, good luck with your situation! And props to you on your attitude, you seem like a very level headed guy.

Most members would be kicking, screaming and crying all over the Internet. I know I would be furious.

thanks for your comment !!! I did, since it "happened" after 30 days they want nothing to do with it... I signed the papers for the vehicle to be sold " as is" .... and that's their argument!!

Definitely get a second opinion as it seems very odd that this would happen out the blue. Good luck!

Perhaps search for free legal consultation about your situation from a reputable law firm.
Open up some options.
