seized engine - rod bearing failure

Another one (me) bites the dust!

Very disappointing for a rather well taken care of 2013 650xi GrandCoupe with 100k kms on it.

Engine stalled while driving, pulled over on the side and that was the end of it. Not able to turn it on and now being told need a new engine.

If anyone has any recommendations I would appreciate.

I will be updating to keep everyone else informed.

Very sorry to hear this! I read somewhere that BMW sells the 650 engine at a very reasonable price.

Wow, only 60,00 miles. Out of curiosity, what was your normal oil change practice - how many km or miles between changes? And before the failure, did your car use oil between changes?

I would suggest seeing if BMW will replace the engine for free or a very good cost. The N63 has issues.

also search Isley v BMW class action lawsuit.

This article applies to the N63. The OP has a 2013, and thus likely has the N63TU.

The Bang vs BMW NA law suit is about the original N63 engine. The Isley vs BMW NA law suit is about the next iteration N63TU engines. I think the link below gives some details about that law suit as well as the BMW TSBs that are examples of continuing issues (excess oil consumption issues): https://www.carcomplaints.com/news/2...-lawsuit.shtml
