N63 Injector Recall - FYI

N63 Customer Care Package:

"This is a 2-part campaign by BMW for cars with the N63 engine. It was announced on 12/29/2014 and called "N63 Customer Care Package", bulletin B001314. The highlights are:

- check the timing chain for stretch; replace if necessary
- check the following items and replace if necessary: fuel injectors, mass air flow sensors, crankcase vent lines, battery, engine vacuum pump, low pressure fuel sensor
- change the oil service interval to 12 months/10,000 miles

Even if your car is out of warranty (ie, 5 years old and has 200k miles), it is covered by this campaign and costs the owner nothing. The dealers are instructed to call all N63 owners in their area and schedule the cars to come in for this service, pending the dealership's availability. The dealership is instructed to provide a loaner car of equal or higher class to the customer (per N63 Customer Care Package Outbound Service Script document).

BMW is also offering extra incentives for owners affected by this campaign to trade in their N63 vehicle and purchase a new car (called the N63 Customer Loyalty Offer, details in a separate sales bulletin).

Also associated with this campaign is the "N63 Customer Appreciation Program". The dealerships are authorized to provide the customer with a gift of $50 value. This could be a gas card, gift bag containing BMW Lifestyle products, vehicle detailing, etc."

Your title of N63 Injector Recall is off the mark. Much more than just injectors in this Customer Care Campaign.

Corrected.

While we are at it, I'll gloat again about BMW being forced to admit their OCIs are too long (oil change interval)

Definitely more than just injectors!

I have a 2011 X5 with the N63 and less than 50K that was drinking oil, blowing smoke under mid to hard acceleration, misfiring into limp mode, and all off the classic issues that I have read about this motor, after the fact.

My dealer first tried the easy stuff like mass air sensor, and then crankcase pipe, but it still bellowed smoke as soon as I left the dealership. Finally they replaced all injectors, and replaced the valve stems, which seem to be an issue, and it was much better. I was still getting smoke with the first good bit of throttle after it had sit for a while, and I actually had the engine malfunction message and limp mode come up once, so now I see this "non recall" recall.

I entend to have them perform replacement of every item on the list that they haven't already, and will not be satisfied until they offer a factory backed warranty on this engine for the life of ownership, as I feel that they will never eliminate some of the issues, such as excessive oil blow-by, and even after the fixes they will probably come back at some point.

They say they just sent a bill to BMW for $7K for the last fix, and they are only offering from what I hear, $2500 extra towards the purchase of a new BMW? Thats just the cost of an option on a new car!
