WOW !!!And a stock engine ?!?!This is the first time that i see a catastrophe like this !!!
Actualy this are S65 horror pics .....Jesus !
I ask myself now....when seeing this horror,who dares to say i'm not afraid for my S65 ?!?!
Makes me think negative about our S65,but was the cold start with cold engine respected with low rpm's in this cases...who knows ???
Anyway it's a good thing to have the BPM tune with reduced rpm to 4K when engine is cold !
Regular guy...THX for sharing this pics....it makes all of us thinking about what could happen,and makes me extra careful when engine is cold specialy in wintertime and thats for sure !

2010 - stock with 26k miles. Snapped rod, piston still intact in cylinder. Holes everywhere, motor still turns freely.

Not my car, currently swapping in BMW reman'd replacement for a customer.

Good pics tough to get at the moment as the ventilated area is just above the steering rack.







This was my stopping point yesterday.

Disregard a vote in the "11" category. I clicked it thinking something else.

How about a category for the 99% of us without a blown engine?
