Default Re: Rod bearing check

You might be able to see if it's been done by checking and pulling a Carfax report on your car. It's not a definitive guarantee that it will show/not show on the report, but generally work done by a dealer is reported and shows up on the Carfax. Hope this helps.

P.S. if you PM me, I can check for you

What year is your M? Be sure to take a sample and send it off to Blackstone. Will only cost you $28 total (Free shipping).

2005, I just got the sample bottle to send to Blackstone. Hoping to do an oil change in the next week or so to send off as well.

There was no Rod Bearing recall for your M. You have one of the later models which did not apply to the recall. The only recalls that apply to your year are the following:

10/01/2009 - Rear Axle Carrier Class Action Settlement
06/01/2009 - Telematics Control Unit (TCU) Reactivation
07/01/2007 - Telematics(R) Control Unit
12/01/2006 - SMG Control Unit Reprogramming
03/01/2006 - Reactivating Telematics Control Unit
08/01/2005 - IHKA Module Recoding
07/01/2005 - Rollover Sensor Replacement
10/02/2009 - DME Programming For Catalyst Conversion
10/01/2007 - DME Programming for OBD Communication

Then of course there are 6 airbag recalls that occurred in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Hope this helps!

Oh great! The dealer said the only outstanding recall showing was the drivers airbag which they had in stock and would take about an hour to replace.

The dealer won't tell you what recalls have been done due privacy, but will tell you what recall needs to be done.

It's beautiful logic

How did you manage to get free shipping through Blackstone? The kits are shipped free from Blackstone but the return shipping is on the customer.

But what I see daily are typical German car colors; blacks, silvers, grays and whites. They look nice, I agree, but to me the appeal is what the M cars were in the 1980s an event. Its not so much that I want to be noticed, but more that I want to stand apart from the crowd. And to me, Phoenix Yellow and Laguna Seca Blue are two of the best ways to differentiate your M3 experience from the norm.

Your dealer is full of crap. But they generally are. You can call around to different dealerships and eventually one will not be a dick and look it up.

They've actually gone to where they're paying for shipping now. If you email them, they'll send you new postage-paid labels to stick on your containers. Got a couple of them last month.
