    My ****ing BMW blew up!!

    Well I just got this BMW a few months ago. Anyways I took it to get checked out and a mechanic told me I needs like 5 grand in work. I was flipping out. So I took it back to the dealer and they tried telling me that they couldn't help me because the warranty is up. So I just went off and told them that i'm taking them to court and they are gonna get ****ed up! Well they bought it and they said they would fix everything but it will take some time. Fine with me....not bad what a little BS and roid rage can do

    What exactly did they tell you was wrong with it? I've never heard of anything costing 5,000 to repair, other then if you totaled it..

    Dont buy a toyota. I have 45k on my car and the transmission just went out on me. Good thing I still have some warranty left on it. Needless to say, this will be the last toyo I will ever buy!

    My ford pickup had 200k city miles on it before it got wrecked the thing ran like new . Think the only thing i changed on it in those miles was an altenator and waterpump. They werent even broke just felt they were getting old so i changed em. People that buy american cars and say there junk dont maintain them and dont know **** about cars. Anyway back on topic what went wrong that cost 5g's? Still curious.

    hey, toyota has a 5 year 60,000 mile powertrain warranty...so that should be covered by toyota..you should not have to pay a penny...if that were a ford with a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty, you would be spending around $2500 parts and labor...

    BMW? Thats the problem. Next time go Lexus. I've already put on 163,000 miles on my Lexus SC400 Sports Coup, and not one single problem. Japanese know their engineering.

    agree...infact, lexus = toyota...same thing...if you look in the trunk of a lexus it should say "build by toyota"....
    i was a mechanic for many years...seen tons of mechanical failures... from my experiance in the shop, i would never buy chrysler, or anything made by chysler (jeep/plymouth)...i would stick with toyota, honda, ford then chevy...

    Na I love my BMW...I just got back from having it towed to the dealership...those fukers better fix it right...Basically there was oil leaking into the coolant system...so the head might have cracked..that is why it is about 5k in damage. but they are taking care of it.

    Toyotas are great I had a truck once. I also have an Acura right now so I still have a car to drive..so i'm ok.. here is a pic of the bastard!!!

    Yeah, its just the high end Toyota, just like Acura is Honda. And for the person saying something about buying a foreign car and not supporting jobs here, Lexus is made here, just engineered overseas. With the exception of the first couple years Lexus made the SC400, it was then a true import from Japan.

    BMW do tend to have a lot of mechanical problems... In luxury sedans mercedes is the way to go, thats just my own personal opinion from extensive use...

    Ohhhh....coolant in the oil stream...thats nasty... i hope they fix the problem right the first time cause that can cause loooots of future problems... if they dont replace your rod bearings, you might be in trouble... see, they might appear to be ok now, just a little scoring, but in 6 months from now you can have a severe oil pressure loss, and thats not good at all...just watch your oil guage, and temp guage... make sure they give you a good warranty on the repairs...
    every import car sold in the states must be made with a certain % of american parts... thats why when you look at a toyota brand new from a dealer it has an american alternator, but the alternator bracket is fitted for a toyota alternator also... so when the american alt breaks down after 50K miles, they pop a brand new toyota alternator in...
    nothing wrong with fords, dont get me wrong...they take good care of their customers..but i prefer toyota now...
    i drive a 93 MR2

    Bmw's are great cars if you buy one without 100,000 miles on it, If its new or has around 40,000 on it and its a decent model you should be fine. And bmw's motors are very touchy to tuning, thats the only downfall. Oh and never buy any model under a 330i performance unless you wanna waste your money. Just my opinions though...

    theh 10 year 100,000 mile warranty is strickly powertrain... so if you have a window motor failure, or shorted alternator, the powertrain warranty wont cover it... dont let the commercials fool you...they can be tricky...

    My mom drove a 1999 323i (i think thats what yours was)... was in the shop several times, but for weird glitches (window doesn't work, weird light wont stop flashing, funny sound). She put 85,000km on it with nothing too be considered a 'problem'.
