    Hello and welcome! i'd say the main this is nikasil, not sure if you've heard of it, but, basically In the mid 90's BMW started using aluminium blocks with a special hard coating (nikasil) in the cylinder bores, however high sulphur content in petrol at this time eroded that coating. The result was poor running and eventually engine failure! But phone or go into a BMW dealer with your chassis number (located bottom right of windscreen) and they can tell you if the block was changed.

    Welcome to the forum Alan!
    My dad is the Service Manager at what i would say is a very good garage (i suppose i would say that as my dad works there). Location is Leamington Spa. Although it isn't a BMW specialist they will reset the service indicators and all that.

    If you want details send me a personal message
