For eg my car broke down in Germany last year, and it was 2 years and 3 months old, and it was not able to be repaired by the dealer under warranty. Breakdown services had to fly me back to London and repatriate my car back. It took 1 month to get it back and repaired.
It's 4 years in the US.

It's 4 years yes, but cars from the factory come with standard 2 years, it's the dealers who add 2 years onto the warranty....

Maybe I missed something, but BMW USA's website doesn't mention anything about that. It just says 4 year warranty:

Yeah, in the US we get a 4 year MFG warranty which includes maintenance. Not so in Europe.

No need for web to mention it....if your 3 year old car breaks down in France for eg, then you'll come unstuck!!!

After calling my bmw dealership, they need to Check the injectors recall because they haven't already read a injector's problem on e89 z4...

I found the recall number in the forum to show to my bmw dealership... I'm already affraid by the answer, don't want to pay for a built problem

For keep you updated,

In my own investigation, my problem is only at idle, and when the engine is cold.

I keep the rpm around 1500rpm, during 1 minute, after all is ok!!

And for the recall of injectors, not concerned P/n

In fact, i have a sick z4 until it heats a little...

Fu*king injector

My no. 1 injector was changed this week, after they first thought it was the ignition coil and the plugs....

I've changed the 6 ignition coils, but not the spark plugs because i haven't the adapated tool to do it (14mm long socket)

Your injector was changed under warranty?

I don't think so, my z4 is from april 2009, 4 years soon and 70 000kms

I don't know what to do, give my car on bmw dealership at the risk of big invoice if no cover by warantee, or do it all by myself (around 400$)

I have never needed drive a car into a dealership for a problem, just for revision... I'm lost to choice how to do for paid the least

Looks great. Love the black roof. I have been planning on wrapping my roof gloss black CF all winter. The time is almost here.
I too sprayed the center grills gloss black and left the chrome ring. It matchs nicely the chrome ring around the hood Roundel.
20% window tint all around is next.
