M3 6-cyl

  • 15,000 miles
Multiple problems with the vehicel. The engine was replaced at 16000, the transmission (smg) was re[;aced at 20000, now the engine rev high at idel and send stron vibration to the cabin and steering column. BMW of houston North, a local dealer in houston, tx, were less than helpful in trying to solve the current problem. It appears that they want to keep the problems with M3 quiet.
