OP, I hope they're giving you a decent loaner. You can talk with BMW about having a month covered if you're financed through them and this continues to drag out. Just hope it's not a bad bearing.
They were saying it was a spring.. Yesterday they were taking the cam out and waiting on a "special tool" after that. They gave me a 328i, which isnt too bad, only because the fuel consumption is much more efficient than the M. I would have liked a 335, but i didnt see any when i was waiting for my loaner. I guess I just didnt want to be that guy, since i was calling and bugging them so much about the vehicle. Hopefully it will be done today or tomorrow, or else I would have looked into them covering a month. If its a bad bearing, stand by... knock on wood... Thanks for the info brotha!
