this has to be one of the most visited thread on car issue on the Internet, 3070 views & 8180 thread views and i couldn't count the number of responses,

One Man's Plea & BMWNA

I would like to hear what they are thinking at this point and time. There is a potential for a good lesson to be learned here.

-This guy bought a '95 740i at a lower than average price (about $10k) from a used car dealer that claimed the engine had just been replaced.

-He got an inspection prior to purchasing it, but it is unclear if the mechanic was associated with the dealer or not.

-The car is well out of warranty, and has over 100k miles.

-After the purchase, he finds that the block turned out not to be replaced, and exhibits the typical nikasil problems of the 90's BMW V8's.

-This guy wants to do a full engine swap, to the M5 (I think) V8 engine. (and even gives an address to donate money via PayPal to help! "Forget junior's college fund, this guy wants to make a huge car go fast!")

-BMWNA has offered to pay for part of the replacement engine, but this guy wants them to pay 100%, despite the fact it's out of warranty, and has high mileage.

-He is attempting to get them to pay by raising a stink on the Internet, even though he bought a model of car known to have problems based on the dealer's word that it was okay.

My take? He's probably got a legitimate legal issue with the dealer, but BMWNA almost certainly doesn't legally owe him a cent. He's lucky that they've offered to pay part of the replacement at all, and foolish to turn it down.

After 130,000 miles I had to "very prematurely" in my opinion replace an alternator one time on a tii I owned. I still have the recipt. Man, I should call my attornee and have him get on this right away. Another time I had a wheel bearing wear a bit early as well. Maybe Munich will foot the bill for this one too. ;->

He says BMW said they'd replace his motor if it goes bad after the warranty period. That's all fine, but I laughed when the rest of this message was pictures of his car on the track! LOL! Maybe it shouldn't matter what you've been doing with your car, but I'm not sure I'd advertize that you've been racing it!

thats a prime case of buyers remorse... it's a very well documented crap engine... if your to dumb to be able to see if the engine had been swaped then you shouldn't buy it... note there's no money made at the courthouse by anyone other than judge and attorney... I hope bmw tells him to "(oops) off" and he finally fesses up to HIS OWN mistake.. it's not bmw's... it's his.. they made the problem aware and gave a suitable timeframe to get it fixed.. didn't get it fixed then oh well, his dumbass self is to blame...
