BMW 535i engine


New member
I have a 2010 F10 which I've owned since near new. Country car, mostly long trips and very regular servicing above recommended .
Done about 150 klms. Now the engine has a tap deep inside ; experts suspect a big end bearing. Apparently not uncommon in these twin-scroll turbo models.
Cant believe this from a BMW but there you have it,
Now has anyone else had any experience with this issue? Its a lovely car but they are not worth a lot at this age.
Any suggestions about fixing or selling. Any interest in buying as is? Currently located in Brisbane.
