My faults?

Hi guys,

Less than 4weeks ownership of the M3

To confirmed it is the coil pack that has given up.

Is it my fault or can the dealership could of prevent his from happening?


Many thanks

Coil packs can and do go out. It's a fact of life. While the dealership probably should have replaced all of them before selling the car (a huge advantage of buying CPO from BMW), unless the car was purchased with a warranty you bought it "as is", and it's your problem. Once the packs go they need to be replaced. Don't cheap out here. If 1 coil pack has gone, the other 7 may be on the way out as well. Replace all 8 of them.

Its in the A&E (Garage) now, I have got 12months warranty on it so it should be ok. I will also mention to them that what about the 7 like what you said.

Many thanks
