yes and from the pics this is much more than a bearing issue (if not a simple hose coming off oil cooler/etc.)

Wow that sucks, good luck with the repairs...so is this a common problem with all M3's or more so with cars that are tracked?

Was this your Idrive message?



Hope everything turns out for the best at the dealer (take off the supercharger and delete this thread!).

I'm relatively new to the M3 world but when I read that some people are considering rod bearing replacement as maintenance, I was surprised. I'll do a search for more details on the subject. In my experience, rod bearing failure usually starts from a lack of lubrication which leads to heat then to welding and then parts breaking and banging around inside the block.

Exact same thing happened to me a few months ago. I bought another short block and having the motor built.

They will not warranty the engine with the supercharger on there. There may be a chance if you remove it and reflash it to stock then take it to a different dealer.
