: I've got a 95 540i and after watching this post and checking out the other websites, I'm just curious about the replaced block issue. How many of you have had the V-8 block replaced and is there anyone out there who hasn't? How many miles did the original last? Anybody from Minnesota had it replaced? It seems like where you live makes a difference. Thanks in advance for the reponses.
I've got a 94 530i 5 spd with 93k miles and less than a week left on the 6 year extended warranty. Just had engine test done this past Tuesday, and although the car runs perfectly it failed the power distribution test, so I get my new engine just after the new year :-) GREAT car. Bought new and no plans to sell. I think I'll have the clutch done as well while the engine is out. Any suggestions on what else to have done at this mileage?
