One blow up does NOT lead to a recall.

Good luck to the OP.

Exactly what I'm wondering. Sucks, but you're out of warranty. Case closed.

Not at all. Companies will sometimes cover or help on failures out of warranty.

Did you notice anything wrong with your car before the failure? Any unusual noises coming from the engine after the car was at full operating temperature?

My car drives fine, great actually, you would never think anything to be wrong, minus the fact that it's making noises that I'm concerned about and will be taking it to my dealer ASAP.

Newbie here, feeling your pain. I bought an 08 M3 with 28k on the clock and all records since new. Less than 1 month later, and it is sitting in the service bay of the local dealership, with an "engine problem" also.

Took 1 road trip that put about 275 miles then back & forth to work, adding another 450 or so miles. After work one day, the car was idling a bit rough and a "service engine soon" light came on. I tried driving it back to the dealership, but it made a scary (like a piece of metal fell out & hit the road) noise and died. Service rep as of last week said they submitted this to wherever claims go, and they were waiting to hear if I was (a) going to get a new engine or (b) have mine "rebuilt" or "worked on".

I read somewhere else that someone on here was out of their car (less than 10k on that one) for about 3 months. I hope my case is resolved sooner.

At least it was fun to drive for almost 4 weeks, and I still have pictures!

Good luck to the OP with your case.

BMW is actually pretty good about helping out in situations involving a catastrophic failure through no fault of the driver, even out of warranty.
