Another thing that has been poping up on the board alot lately is the "in car venilation" function of the climate control.

Hi. Sorry to be critical here but here is my input to you.

You are new here because you blown a piston ring:
So if you didnt blow a piston ring - you wont be here joining our board?

You did drive your car properly and that is probably why you blew a piston ring?
Sorry, that simply doesnt make sense at all.

Can it be rebuilt?
Of course. Any engine can be rebuilt.

Does anyone know where?
Sure, try your local BMW repair shop.

I mean your question should be "I am here in (ex) San Diego, California. Does anyone have a BMW repair shop they can recommend?"

Sorry but with the questions you posted - no wonder not very many members, actually none reply to you.

You need to learn how to post questions properly so that members here can try and help you.

Where do I start.......You always get one don't you. Your right I wouldn't of joined if my m5 was still working .I didn't even know it existed till I started looking for help with my car.Usually forums are full of dicks like you.This forum though has lots of decent car enthusiasts who are more than willing to help and have given me lots of advice (I've had loads of replys off sound people who were happy to help me ). With them also owning a nice car they can sympathise with me. You clearly have nothing better to do ...why don't you ask your local dealer if they can rebuild you m6 engine?? (that's if you have one which you probably don't or you would understand why I want my car back)they will tell you it has a nickel bore and cant be rebuilt .they say it needs a new bottom end at £12500. (do you not think I would of tried my local BMW Dealer??)
Why would you criticise me for screwing the **** out of my M5 ? I dont care if you are one of them pussy`s that own a nice car and dont know how to drive it. its nothing to do with me ....Like my car and how I drive it is nothing to do with you.I drive it properly ...Love nothing more than red lining it through every gear and doing big donut smoke outs whenever I can . If thats what broke it then **** it ...It was worth it and when I get it back thats what im gonna do again. When I drive down the road people are glad that at least someone has a nice car and knows how to drive it . Im sure when you toddle past not going over 4ooo rpms they think you dont deserve it.
Stick your critical comments up your critical opinionated *** and go get a life.And when your car breaks down (which it will very soon ) think of me :-) x

To purple8888:

Look, I was respectful to you with my comments (you can re-read my post) and you come back calling me with all kinds of names.

All I was trying to tell you is if you want our members here to help you - you need to post your questions properly.

You obviously dont know me. Check my number of posts and do a search using my handle name.
I am one of the most helpful person on this board, and I joined this board because I wanted to share my knowledge with the members here.

Check out my DIY posts.

Check also my age compared to yours and lets compare experience and knowledge with these fine machine if you want to talk experience, technical knowledge and driving skills.

Gustav is also a good friend of mine (he owns this board.)
I am also good friends with a few moderators here and administrators. We dont tolerate foul language here as you risk getting banned.

I encourage you to learn some manners and watch your language when you communicate with other people.
