Luck of the........

So far so good for me. I've got about 25k on my 2015 and no problems yet. I have the 3 year extended warranty I hope the motor doesn't pop after that lol.

O.P. let us know what you think about the process and new motor once it's in and running.

Wife- every Asian man who owns a store is not named Mr. Lee

Me- lol.....damn your right.

If you're in CA you have very favorable lemon laws, if the bike is in service for more than 30 days they have to buy it back plus the cost of inconvenience.

Most dealers can't get a rebuild done with the proper expertise in 30 days. The engine replacement would require ordering from Germany, there is a 20% tariff on that versus a complete motor vehicle that has a 2.5% tariff.

Hey, I would let them keep the lender bike, drop it off, and tell the service manager you're leaving the country for two months, play it chill, like no sweat, "I like the 2018 more than the 2020, last of the breed". He will put the job on the back burner.

If you go in there and throw a lemon law book in his face, he will call BMW and they will fly a factory guy in and he will have an engine swap done in 8 hours. Lemon Law buy backs really hurt them in consumer reports.

I know California and they can't hold of a decent motorcycle mechanic for a few weeks because they can't pay like a diesel engine shop. BMW Stuttgart can rebuild an engine and slap a warranty on it in less than 16 hours of labor. Just say'n but we have mechanics that live breath and sleep BMW for 20 years.

Bad advice about saying "I'm going out of town." If you cause a time delay as a customer then those days don't count towards your lemon-days.

2 months no bike yet. I went to the Alhambra shop and I got the run around of the engine barely being shipped this past week and I should have it back this week; supposedly. I am starting to wonder if I am actually getting a new engine or if the heads were rebuilt. Cylinder 1 had bent valves. I did not mark the block trusting BMW will keep their warranty service. We will see. I will guess this engine will not last long since it is the same failed designed. It has no revisions.

Did they give you a loaner bike or not? I don't think most dealers offer that service.
