Absolutely zero mods. I wouldn't do anything until AFTER my CPO warranty is up because of stuff like this. I believe they are mod friendly. I see a lot of modded cars there when I go and they're an authorized Dinan dealer and installer as well.

REALLY good to know, thanks for keeping us posted!

I'm in a similar boat; not altering anything else until my warranty is up. (just did the amp, lighting which they can't see, 8.8 > 10.2 screen and an armrest for now haha) Anxious to get the M bumpers on in the spring....just need to find a good body shop that'll do the work.

Staying away from engine mods while under CPO is a good idea. I think bodywork is no issue, at least with my dealer. Glad this happened now rather than later.

That's why I figured just do the body kit in the spring then wait it out...our dealer is also an authorized Dinan installer as well so they see modded cars often. (I try not to look which helps keep me in check)

When the injector went it probably soaked the CAT with fuel and messed up the O2 sensor. Car runs fine, but light is on. I dont think it's a big deal or "bad CPO", just a PITA.

ANOTHER UPDATE - The CAT needs to be replaced. When the injector went it fouled up the CAT and O2 sensor. They will be swapping all injectors and plugs and the CAT itself. All under CPO warranty.

Damn man, you can't catch a break here! Least it's covered but that's definitely a PITA making multiple trips to the dealer one right after another.

I'd rather be driving the 2018 5er anyway until that is I want to have fun

LOL!! I knew it once that CEL came up. I was like "Well there goes the cat". My wife was in the car and she thought I ran a cat over

Honestly I'm glad this is all happening now.

True that; just think if you were out of warranty! the wife is already pissed enough thinking that you ran over a cat haha Good times

Although it's a still a BMW loaner, this sort of irks me. So let's offer up the cheapest model with nothing in it to entice that customer to buy another yet of all things Cadillac did wrong, they did provide fully loaded loaners and only once did I receive an ATS. (was always XTS, SRX and CTS loaners all Premium or at least Luxury Trims) This always pushed me into the showroom or at LEAST think about it. Last time I was in for a service, I quickly learned how bad a base X1 really is!

Hope you get this resolved at no charge bro
Thanks bud. First thing I asked the SA was "this is all covered under warranty right?". Got her on record saying "it's a CPO so yes, all covered".

I actually had a 320 but I hated it and traded it in for my 335. So far the 320 has been more reliable, that's for sure.
So you have to pay $50 deductible? Do you have to pay$50 for each coil pack or just once?

I'm 99.9% that $50 deductible is for the entire visit and not each part unless something isn't covered of course.

Nope, just one $50 deductible for the whole deal.

that's what I said unless you paid $50 for all future visits and if this is the case, where do I sign? Yeah didn't think it was per part haha
