BMW is currently imposing a delivery stop for the models M3 / M4 (G80 / G82) due to engine problems! A faulty one is supposed to be Supplier part be to blame. Of the S58-M six-cylinder is also installed in the current X3 M / X4 M (F97 / F98), but the models are apparently not affected. At the moment only the deliveries of the M3 sedan, the M4 Coupé and the M4 Competition Cabrio (xDrive) are affected. Routine quality control revealed errors in the Main bearing shells from a supplier. And that's not completely new. Because even the M variants E36, E46 and E60 had problems with it again and again. With regard to the E60 V10, we even know exactly what we are talking about, because we had one and it was also affected.

The main bearings work as a mount for the crankshaft and they are lubricated with the engine oil. In this way, friction-intensive contacts are avoided. At least in theory.

They should, however affect only 35 vehicles. At least that's what a BMW spokesman told the magazine Car engine sports. And apparently the problem also ends should not in a recall. So we keep our fingers crossed so that the 35 customers receive their vehicles as quickly as possible.
