Nope.

Unlike rest of the world, USA does not have a loser pays Attorney Fees for both sides system. Very few laws allow for Attorney Fees as part of damages (Some States Lemon Laws do).

That's why there are so many lawyers and ridiculous lawsuits in USA....because loser doesn't pay for the others Attorney Fees.
Not sure which state you're practicing law in but the loser sometimes does pay attorney fees.
Again, not in most cases, as stated.

And those are very specific well defined situations.

But don't take my word for it.

Loser pays, or English rule, is not the rule in USA.

And I don't practice law. Dealt with many legal issues with lawyers in real life. I only practice law on the Internet

Are you sure you the engine in there cannot just be repaired? I haven't read this whole dumpster fire of a thread, so maybe I missed a post where you included the actual diagnosis and it's something like you blew a hole in the block.

But I didn't see that. I only saw bad compression numbers. So ... do a leakdown test .. pull the head and go from there. It may just be a valve or hell even a head gasket. Unless you stated otherwise (I apologise for not reading) what you have can probably be rebuilt.

BMW are wankers and if a spark plug fouls they want everyone to fork over 25k for a new engine, as they think their customers are idiots, and a lot of them are.

I would post brand again but got tired of F8x owners who refused to believe it was true trying to argue something they knew nothing about.

At least IND sent new filters to everyone who had previously purchased. Of course, as reason was not told why, Iím betting most just thought....wow....free replacement...Iíll just hold on to it until I need it.
Look at the bright side, at least you won(?). Imagine going through all that shit and loosing. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Pretty impossible to lose in my case.

Physical evidence the entire jury could see as car was brought to a secure area of the courthouse and judge and jury were allowed to examine.

I sure wouldn't have done it to that extent if it was any ambiguity as would be the case if Car was modded.

In my case it was very straight forward.

They had attempted to repair twice to no avail. Thus would be impossible to deny repair based on anything I had done.

Some battles must be fought, on matter's of principle if for no other reason. I've fought a few myself and mostly got my ass kicked for my trouble. Never came away any richer and seldom any wiser but I always came away with my head held high, dignity and self respect are priceless in my opinion. Sounds to me like you did what you had to do, !

Yes. Very damning opinions written by the judge about their delays and ignoring court orders remains on file and public record for anyone looking to take them on in the future, though they tried every avenue to suppress.

That was the gift that keeps on giving.

Quick update:
Geico's MBI was no help, and ended up denying my claim. While I haven't been able to get any direct answers as to why, the gist of what they are saying is that BMW denied my warranty claim due to modifications, and they cant correctly find the cause of the damage because i returned my car back to stock (i put the factory intake back on)

In addition to this I got a pretty vague letter saying they are unable to provide coverage as stated in my policy amendment "Loss due to misuse, alteration, or lack of proper maintenance is not covered"

Needless to say, it smells like BS and almost as if they have taken the past couple months to find an excuse not to pay for an engine. It's unrelated, but I have also canceled my policy with Geico as a result of this.

To resolve the problem, i bought a low mileage used B58 from LKQ and am having Minicorsa in North Hollywood install it.

Cant wait to have a car again!

Wow! I was told by Geico three years ago that they would cover modified engines if the manufacturer denied a claim. That's why I bought the warranty to begin with. Were you able to find this quote on their main page? I didn't see any language like this when I got MBi through them. Are you going to follow up with a lawyer to ask BMW to prove that your intake caused this?

Sorry man

But he said you should be good to go. BMW was supposed to foot the bill...

The supplier also has to pay for 3rd party inspection and other increased quality measures until the issue is resolved. The rule of thumb is always to rectify the issue as quickly as possible, then find root cause later and sort out the financial portion in the background. Ideally the dealer/customer should never be left hanging waiting for approval to fix the car.

Now If the OEM reads a service write up that indicates the car was modified in a way that voids the warranty, then they will deny the claim. We typically requested parts be returned to us for analysis so we can verify it is an approved part and see if it was modified. Or in the OP's case, they often send field techs to review the vehicle before paying out the claim since the cost is so high.

If the OEM bills a supplier and the supplier say it's a design issue or installation issue at the factory that isn't their responsibility, they can deny the claim as well. For example, if the returned part shows signs of damage indicating that it was installed with improper tools, or the dealer comments that the part wasn't screwed in/clipped in properly. Then it's up to the OEM to either prove that the supplier is at fault or fix the issue with other measures. The supplier then does a chargeback for all incurred expenses due to the claim.

Ultimately the suppliers get the worst end of the deal. it's guilty until proven innocent at that point. And especially frustrating when engineers aren't cooperating or doing their due diligence in the investigation. A lot of times you can't tell if a part was damaged during manufacturing, installation or removal. So you really rely on the dealer's wording to understand what happened. But an easy one is if we didn't see the right supplier code/part number on the part, it wasn't ours. and it's the OEM's responsibility to chase the right one. that was rare, but it happened.

In the case of the filter example, you can't always tell (especially if the part was destroyed during the failure). But virtually every OEM part drawing includes an area for an OEM part number and/or some marking indicating compatibility. If, for example, an intake manifold was returned with no markings then we'd know it's not approved. But if it is sold under the OEM part number like what you see on ECS, RockAuto, etc., then it is approved.

The reason why some dealers are "mod-friendly" is because they're not stupid. They know they will get paid for service as long as they don't put in the service writeup that they replaced parts on a modified car. And usually those are the dealers that are honest about what caused the repair because they actually check into what happened and find the root cause of the issue.

I always wondered why certain dealers are so eager to flag modified cars for even simple things since it also means the customer probably won't be coming back to them for service or other warranty work...


What happens if your car is leased and they void your warranty due to mods? At the end of the lease they are still taking it back and it's no longer your problem. Do they charge you for this?

I'm sure if it was a lease, you'd have to buy it out. But who knows. ....

Depending on the amount - its an option to have walked away and take the hit.. or just take them to court or arbitrator. Work and money but probably less then a new motor.

But sorry to hear this didnt work out.

Misfire from changing in take is absolute BS - that is issue is guaranteed to be some type of malfunction unrelated.

Best of luck with the new motor

Curious what you've ended up paying for this, parts, and labor.


One thing I saw somewhere the other day is that the B58 uses "arc wire spray" for the cylinder walls and these cannot be re-honed as you'd easily do with any other sleeved block. That sucks

Once you have to buy a new motor, you would have spent about the same as a new M3.

Faster car, factory warranty, no downtime, and no more idiotic forum posts.... sounds like a better deal.

Well look at your amazing hindsight. So should every B58 owner who wants a faster car just buy an M3 to begin with, because one person had a major problem? Itís certainly not a better deal for the thousands who mod away and donít blow a motor..

If you're pushing your car hard enough that you're going to blow up a motor and not be able to afford a new motor out of pocket, then the answer is obvious - you would have been better of buying an M3.

Perhaps there are plenty of people who do significant powertrain modifications that don't truly push their cars for a sustained period of time to cause immediate and catastrophic problems.

But I can guarantee that if I took a tuned N55/B58 vehicle and drove it in back to back sessions HPDE sessions in the intermediate/advanced groups, your engine won't last nearly as long as the warranty period.

Changing your intage filter (pretty that is what was done) wouldnt be considered a "Significant power train modification"

Its horrible it was covered honestly.. frankly it doesnt yield much more air then an K&N except adding noise

My car is a lease with 23 months remaining, I have no clue what BMW does in cases like this but i'm planning on riding out the remainder of my lease and possibly ending it a few months early to move on to something else.

It isn't something they would go over in most lease end inspections either, and i should fly under the radar due to having the car in reasonably good shape, as well as being well under the mileage cap by the time the lease is up.

That's what i believe too. Sadly after talking to a few lawyers they had all turned away my case. One lawyer said that he doesn't take cases with BMW because dealing with them is a nightmare.

Made more sense to cut my losses, buy a used motor and get back on the road.

One thing I saw somewhere the other day is that the B58 uses "arc wire spray" for the cylinder walls and these cannot be re-honed as you'd easily do with any other sleeved block. That sucks
So far the engine has set me back a little under $3.2k, I'll post the final cost of everything when the repairs are done.

Faster car, factory warranty, no downtime, and no more idiotic forum posts.... sounds like a better deal.

I get where you're coming from, but I wasn't really expecting to blow an engine on a brand new car. And I wasn't pushing the car to that extent, spirited canyon driving every now and then but I've never tracked the car.
