Nice sound from engine.

i have late -99 beast and when i driving one day i notice loud klackin sound coming from the motor when i trhottle over 2000rpm. I drive it to the nearist bmw service and praying all the way to there. First they say it maybe vanos or just broken ignition coil. But it much much worst..... collapsed "connecting rod"(i dont know if this is the right translation) bearing on downpart of motor and when they opened the motor that collapsed bearing create nice cut in the crankshaft and connection rod itself. Crankshaft and connection rod takes so much damage that they are lost . I have to buy new crankshaft and all 8 new connection rod and all bearing on downpart of motor costs about 7500€ include the work. Nice, very ******* nice.

and oh my beast have eat 121000km of road.

i attach pictures soon wich i take when motor was little pieces. There you can seen then whats it look like on inside and also the collapsed bearing and damaged crankshaft and etc.

Re: Nice sound from engine.

I am so sorry! Good luck getting the beast back on the road, and try to take out some of your anger on a rental car.
