Cheap Underhood Plastic

I found this cheap cracked up brittle plastic tonight. It is a 2011 so would the warranty cover this? Pretty ridiculous that it is already falling apart. My 2001 M5 has the same problem.

I believe this is a known issue. Breakdown of this part can allow water to leak onto injectors causing major issues. Do a search. There may be an updated part....

That's part of the bulkhead and it's not covered under warranty...anything plastic basically is not covered anymore from what I understand. I complained many times about this to my SA when I bought my X and saw it basically cracked all the way around the right angle part and was sagging down in my engine bay.

My 2012 X6M is in the shop at this very moment getting this replaced; yes mine is being covered by warranty.

I should of been more clear...it's not covered under CPO but it is under Factory warranty or so it seems to be covered under that SB regarding the injectors. Mine was a CPO purchase...I know the GM at my dealer from school and I still couldn't get it done under CPO. Also, I have the 4.8i not the turbos you guys have.

"Trim pieces" are not covered under the CPO warranty.

It seems like a safety issue since you are basically sucking engine bay air right into the cabin. I put a little screw into mine to hold it in place until something is done to fix it.

I talked to BMW and they said said the same thing about the CPO warranty not covering it. However, if I wanted to push it I could always blame it on them since they took all that stuff off to do the service bulletin. Fact is, I don't really know if it was like that before.

I'm probably going to remove it and reinforce it with Alclad aluminum while I'm at work some night.
