Interesting, Very interesting.

What gets me is how OP's friend never noticed his car leaking oil. Unless he's a magical road warrior and never stops driving, surely he must have stopped SOMEWHERE and noticed a puddle of thick, gooey liquid near his car? Just maybe? Or perhaps this other shop used dark matter oil that is super eco-friendly and evaporates when exposed to air. With all the green shit, you never know these days...

you said it man, you buy something used for cheap, if it craps out on you don't be surprised. I'm sure bimmersport will rectify the problem with this guy.

but seriosuly, when you have an m52 in an e30, don't tell me he was being gentle with his driving...

I'd like to apologize to johny blaze and everybody at bimmersport...i did not have the full story and was not aware of the stripped bolt and the leaking oil issue.

I'M SORRY BIMMERSPORT if I ruined your name or gave you bad publicity on the forum.

^Classic example of when you should get all your facts straight before coming to any conclusions.

FWIW, I hope the situation gets resolved, but from what I have read I don't see any liability in BimmerSport's hands. Seems like this other shop is to blame for some serious problems.

all I have to say is WOW

OP - if he went to another shop and had an oil change, and this is the reason why the hell are you dragging this shit up with Bimmersport?

WHY NOT NAME THE SHOP WHO DID THE OIL CHANGE????????

thought something felt weird about this whole situation. Sounds like the owner realized it was his problem cause another shop ****ed up.

I think the OP of this mess owes Bimmersport an appollogy big time.

+1 on the apology and now I would like to see here the outcome of the shop that did the oil change!

I'm going with Occam's razor here and assuming that he ****ed it up himself trying to change the oil, and while freaking about the stripped oil pan, forgot to put any oil in.

Wow, I like how none of this was mentioned by the OP, did you not know?

All he kept saying was $250, his friend paid $250, $250 for nothing and still a blown engine. If you cared to know, that $250 was for fixing the stripped oil pan that got ****ed up, and some proper oil put in.

Oh yea, in the OPs eyes they robbed him of $250 and did nothing to fix the problem.....If that is not ignorance I don't know what is.

I expect an apology from the OP.

At first I thought it was the used motor that was bad, but now it is clear it was because the engine was ran with no oil. Clearly the owner should be looking elsewhere for blame.

A mod should put [Resolved - Owner Mistake] in the title.

Why trust some cheap shop to change your oil after spending so much money? Why not spend the extra $60 with the shop that knows the car?

When you find a good shop/mechanic STICK WITH THEM!

I didn't want to say anything before, but I will now.

Let me preface this by saying I've never had any dealings with the shop in question, so there is no bias.

From the way the OP was made, and the slim details that were posted, my first instinct on this was user error. "Only a couple weeks" after an engine swap is a long enough time to **** up an engine. If it started knocking on the way home, that's one thing.... but a couple weeks later sends a little red flag up. Put someone behind the wheel of a new more powerful engine, and they'll likely be in the mood to give it a good workout.

Now that more details are out, this is clearly the fault of the owner. First of all, if I got an engine swap and needed an oil change done, I'd be going back to the show that did the swap so they could check out the engine anyways!! Make sure everything looks good. Why take it to another shop? They obviously ****ed something up huge. Unless of course the owner was actually doing it himself and ****ed it up due to lack of knowledge or butterfingers, who knows. Then he's even more to blame.

Frankly this entire thread is disgusting. It's amazing how some people will just jump on the hate train without any knowledge of the situation, just because they have had some sort of past issue with a shop. It's pretty immature and pathetic. If anything, this should never have come up. If the owner of the car wanted to voice their opinion, they should have posted on here (or joined up to voice their opinion, if they aren't currently a member). It's fine being an intermediary, but it comes with the risk of not having all the facts.

An expensive lesson, for sure. But one I'm sure the car's owner won't forget.

damn i barely check / post on maxbimmer much but its turned into such a hate forum...

deal with stuff personally ... PM or face to face.

I've gotten stuff done at bimmersport quite a few times (nothing huge) but every time charlie and john were fair...
i'm sure if this was brought up properly they would do everything they could to help your friend.
