New Engine Cost
Hi Eli Bugs,
Hopefully I can shed some light on it for you. I have had a similar situation at 48 k miles over a year ago. Car lost power on motorway and after being towed would not restart. Long story short it was the tensioner which snapped causing severe damage to the engine, resulting in me needing a new engine. As I was out of warranty this was quoted at Ł6000. After a month long battle with BMW over the tensioner fault, which they clearly know about and wont admit to I got a good result. Luckily the dealers I had it towed to (Derby) were fantastic and battled as hard as i did with BMW. They were able to secure an agreement with BMW goodwill. I recieved a new engine only having to pay the labour incurred in fitting it, which was something like Ł200 if i remember correctly. If you search my previous posts it should outline in greater detail what the process was that i went through with BMW. If not then dont hesitate to mail me and ill help you as best i can. 1 warning however, It will be a hard battle with BMW but always remember that you are in the right and your tensioner is a common fault that they refuse to acknowledge or recall.
Hope that helps!!!
