N63 Injector Recall?

Hi All,

I came across a document stating that BMW extended the warranty coverage on injectors for several N63 powered vehicles. I noticed in the document that the f10 550i wasn't explicitly stated but it had the 550 gran turismo and various other n63 powered vehicles listed.

Just want to know if anyone has successfully had BMW cover the injector replacement on their 550s?

Look at the production dates of the vehicles that are listed, before f10 production. Your car isn’t listed, it isn’t included. What year is your vehicle?

I've researched under F10 service bulletins that the years 13-15 for 550's fall under this 100,000 - 10 year limited warranty.

My 2014 was acting up and my indy said try BMW and see if they will fix. Well since there were no codes they simply attributed it to poor gas. No code, no free fix. The problem is the with not only the fuel injectors but the actual poor design of the where they are located in relation to the combustion chamber and piston area. Gasoline somehow gets mixed in with the oil which makes our cars burn oil much faster than normal hence the civil suit outstanding on BMW's.

This is very vague at best but my tech tried to explain what was happening with my vehicle and this is the best I could understand since I know nothing about engines obviously.

My SA attributes the 'big' turbos attributing to the burning oil issue as well. All I know is the past few months mine is burning oil quicker than normal. Not sure what's going on with that yet but lets see if I get a dash light or some other quirky issues besides stalling out , hesitation, poor gas mileage, etc. which is happening as we speak.

Very nervous as I'm flying blind with no warranty at 67k.

AFAIK there are only a couple of ways for oil to enter the combustion chamber; rings and valve seals. This is my 1st experience with a turbo'd engine and I'm guessing oil my also get past the turbo seals or bearing.

I know the turbos living in the valley of the V8 is good for compactness but not so bueno for heat control. Maybe if the hood had some kind of heat extractor then heat wouldn't be such an issue.
