BMW Ag Steps up
First, I want to thank you for calling your "dealer BMW" sources, since with my "dinan /peter pan/stevans creek 'source," and all the calls to Germany all of those "sources," made, I am very pleased to announce, for all the world of BMW guys like us, that BMW has agreed to start making "reman' blocks, for 3.6L engines E34 M5s, complete with piston set, two year warranty, and unlimited miles.
My "order" was sent to Germany on November 12, and I may have been the first order in the US for a new one under this I hope new BMW ag "programme", and I am told from my Dinan source, that my block will be shipped from Germany on November 17. (customs pass through could take weeks).
No matter. I had already had my "heads" finished, and they are beautiful, a machine shop next to and recommended by Dinan.
None of this would have happened without your telephone calls. What is your preference in vino? Santa wants to send you a thanks.
Rest of story, here, goes, I also ordered a "reman' tranny, at $5600, from BMW, ag, and again, two year warranty, unlimited miles.
I am now waiting for Dinan to put it all back together and after "break-in," can enjoy what BMW intended for what MMiller at "bimmer" calls the best that BMW has ever done.
Again thank you so very much.
(Note I still may order a back up block just in case BMW ag "backs out.")
Ps thanks to all of you out there sending me your recommendations. I looked at them all, but decided to stay with the "mother ship."
