Well, I took my car to the dealership for the connecting rod replacement service action and just found out that BMW authorized them to replace my motor. Turns out that a couple of the bearings had severe etching which was the basis for authorizing a complete motor swap.
Now I'm at a loss....on one hand I'm happy to get a new motor, even though I only had 8000 miles on the car. On the other hand, now I'm worried as to how this motor swap will affect the value of the car.
Anyone have any stories of their bearing replacement?
