Thumbs up BE Bearings | Year-End 2016 Group Buy for S65/S85 rod bearings

-- Better Bearings for your BMW


Announcing BE Bearings Group Buy


Background:
  • BMW M5 (2005-2010), BMW M3 (2008-2013) can suffer early bearing failure due to inadequate rod bearing clearance.
  • Insufficient clearance means insufficient oil flow, excessive bearing surface heat, and premature wear.
  • These symptoms can lead to early bearing failure and a very expensive engine rebuild.
  • Problem can be addressed during engine rebuild, but it's expensive.
  • Some people switched to thinner oils -- as a stopgap measure.
  • Other stopgap measures include anti-friction teflon coated factory bearings, WPC anti-friction treated factory bearings, and custom bearings with same clearance as stock.
  • WPC treated bearings slightly increase clearance, but are a stopgap.
  • Newer factory bearings (2010.5 and later) are made from tin-aluminum, not lead-copper. Tin-aluminum bearings are 4-times harder on the surface than lead-copper bearings. This extra hardness shows signs of doing more damage to motors as there seems to be more bearing failures with 2010.5 and later vehicles. Tin-aluminum bearings also don't show the same signs of premature wear in Blackstone oil analysis due to lack of lead and copper.
  • We are the guys who came up with the WPC treated bearings and we realized a better solution was needed.
The Better Solution:
  • Designed to address and fix the rod bearing clearance issue.
  • Designed for use with factory 10W60 weight oils.
  • Increases oil flow.
  • Improves lubrication for "Start-Stop" vehicles over factory bearings.
  • Designed in consultation with leading industry experts from NASCAR, Indy Car, and former BMW M-Division engine designer.
  • Designed and manufactured by Clevite, factory BMW bearing supplier.
  • Traditional lead-copper bearing design; less wear on crankshaft journals, traceable with Blackstone oil analysis.
  • Each bearing is measured and size-binned. Allows for custom bearing selection when necessary.

Do you have a price on the ARP bolts that were made specifically for our engines?

Does the 10% off apply to the ARP bolts as well or just the bearings?

Use "BBJINTL" for international orders. You get 10% off, plus $30 applied towards shipping.

We use DHL to ship internationally. We use a service at the web site to calculate shipping rates. I know when I've checked, the service always seems reasonably accurate. I just checked a shipping to AU, and the DHL web site quoted $102. I'll check the service settings to see if I can make an adjustment for accuracy.

To get an exact price quote for shipping, PM me your address, and I'll look it up on DHL web site and use that in case the service isn't correct.

+001 is for reground cranks; STD is for non-reground cranks. STD is what you want unless you've had a damaged crank and had it reground. If you're unsure, check with your builder and/or service shop.

I'm not seeing a problem with the discount calculator. V10 bearings are $734. Let's say shipping is $20.32. You should see a discount of 93.72 ($73.40 + $20.32). I just tried this, and it worked fine for me.
