wow thanks for the quick replies guys! so from what you guys said and i read, 1101 (week 11 2001???) is the ONLY week that has the problem?

if it happens to be that week, do you get extended warranty? or they just fix your engine for good? what did bmw do about it?

thanks a lot guys!

if your car is in that time, i think they got warranty up to 100k miles...do a search for "M3 Warranty" there was a few posts on it...the engine blowing up thing was covered by bmw for the people that it happened to...
