No more updates on this one,

She is now my daily drive, she has done about 30,000km for me last year, if not more

Had to replace injectors, but other then that, very little issue.

There is still a small list of things to do, minor bits, which I usually save for December, of which I had none, went away for the first time over xmas season.

I will be on the other side if anybody needs me Bluebiggrin

Soo... an update..

Yes I still have the car, and yes it is my daily.

I bought it on... think it was 69k on the clock and now we are on 95k

So far reliability has not been terrible, considering the horribly bad name the N63 has.

During that time, I have had various warning lights and bugbears.

Worst of it was the failing injectors, yep they went bad, and my life sucked.

However, since the N63 is such an issue, and a campaign has been launched world wide that we did not see in SA, I did put through a complaint to BMW.

Low and behold, even though the car is out of plan, BMW paid for the injectors!!!!

Parts were sponsored free of charge, big props to a manufacturer that honoured a vehicle fault, without warrantee or motorplan. I still had to pay the dealership for the labour, but there is only one guy I trust with this kind of work... while it was still expensive a fraction of the cost...

We also had a battery that went poof, which was replaced with a traditional battery, because nobody can afford 7k for a deep cycle.

fast forward to this evening. She just had her 3rd oil change since my ownership, and a annoying AF EML light. I wish BMW would learn that people actually have hands, and that they are big, and that they need to give more space to work....

ISTA-d says that it is the Vanos Solenoids or Vanos systems. I have installed 2 new solenoids on bank 2, which was one hell of a job.

While on the N54 its fairly easy to do, the N63 requires a intercooler to be removed,

I swear that I need to go qualify as a gynaecologist and I will be better at BMW repairs.

Synopsys, almost 25,000 km and still has not exploded yet....

I will be on the other side if anybody needs me Bluebiggrin

Well done! Having stripped many cars liked this and re-assembled them (and being amazed the intricacy and care taken in terms of clips and process) I bow down to your efforts!

The fault finding and wiring side of the project is unbelievable, very brave!

A proud moment today. 100,000 on the clock. I bought her somewhere in the 60k range

One mechanical breakdown due to injectors failing, other then that nothing significant.[Image: 9a3397c855a85b19baa66c93deac7c21.jpg]
