Doesn't surprise me in the least that they won't pay anything. Its an 8 year old truck. They have no reason to. They pulled the same thing with me when my 750 started leaking, and that was barely out...

The one in my 750 had oil leaking issues into the turbos and intercoolers at 68k miles. Thats the last I know about it, because the dealer told me if I didn't get rid of it I'd be looking at $30-40k...

Has anybody done any dyno testing on the TU3 yet? Wondering if it could reach 600 on just a JB4, or if the turbos are too small.

Are the plugs fairly easily accessible? I gotta go to the dealer this week to finalize my order, so if it’s accessible I’ll get under the hood of an M850 while I’m there and check out the plugs.

I would make sure they've actually test fit those on an N63TU3. According to the BMW ETK, the *** for the TU2 and TU3 are not the same.

Also see if they offer a coated version. Heat kills N63s...

Looks like a Stage 1 something. I’ve never seen a JB4 in the small case. The G3 V2 printing is the same as my N55 Stage 1, but the harness and sticker on the back aren’t.

Iím sure heís nowhere near eating ramen. Heís only saying that as a hyperbole.




$40k isnít $70k+. You can buy a Honda or Toyota and spend $40k every few years.
