Drove around in my buddy”s 2012 twin turboB7, we stopped at some point and as I exited this beautiful white Alpina... the waft of burnt oil hit my nostrils. The car has 54k miles, should I tell him to dump it before it grenades on him?

First off Hoovey, you don't know what your talking about. That 07 Alpina you say you bought cheap, the engine compartment looks a little used. The supercharger cover is missing from the initial camera shot in the video. Your car ninja is not a good mechanic, but he is a rip off artist. Any good mechanic would not remove that engine, tear it down, put it back in the car, and then have you experience the same problem. A good mechanic would have checked the supercharger for oil leaks first off. And yet you said you sold BMW's, I can't believe how dumb you are.

One more reason to keep my 1970 Torino 302, and 1966 Mustang 289. So easy to fix. Basic socket set can handle 90% of the work. I grew up with these old cars. They make fuel injection kits for them now. Tires are cheap. So is everything else.

Dude, you need to be careful making sweeping statements about BMW engines. Seems like you're constantly buying cars that have had proper maintenance deferred - so what do you expect? The S65 in my 08 M3 has over 60K on it without a hitch. Try changing the oil every 5,000 miles, do an oil analysis every now and then and you should be good to go.

You can’t say BMW V8 is junk just because of valve stem seals!! My 545i has got 190000 km with the oreganal seals and no smoke!! Depends how you look after the car! Regular oil change and correct type of oil

dsmproject90 Prije 6 mjeseci
Why do the heads have to come off to change the valve seals? Why do you have to drop the motor to take the heads off? I have seen many kits that's can replace the valve seals with head on and motor in place.
AvSat7 Prije 6 mjeseci
Can't comment on a B7, a car that has (I assume) been modified by Alpina, but I have had extensive experience with pre vanos 4.4 litre V8's and have found them to be extremely reliable. I currently drive (amongst other cars) an E39 540i and have owned it since new (1997). In just over 23 years the engine has had a couple of minor oil leaks which were easily fixed, a new water pump and time chain replacement. I wouldn't call the last item a fault as it is a normal part of the engine maintenance to have these replaced at some point. By the way, it is also NOT an oil guzzler. Having watched a number of your videos, which I do enjoy, I can only come to the conclusion that you are just buying cheap crap that has been poorly maintained and thrashed to near death.

LMFAO all GM 3.6 L engines all the way to 2007 have this problem, it got even worse with the Direction injection versions lol. North Americans switch out their vehicles more often than Europeans, that is why you don't see too many of these issues in the manual versions of the European BMW's as the way they drive there BMW would be bankrupt.

OK, firstly how many kilometres/ miles has the car done. It could have done 300k we wouldn't know. You complain about an Alpina B7 !! that only cost you what $3.5k and then costs you a partial engine build- Really !. For such an awesome car you complain- it was cheap for a reason, be it high mileage or poor condition. Also its a B7 which means the addition of a Turbocharger, If the car has relatively average mileage then i would think it is Alpina's fault not BMW as they should have upgraded the valve seals for the added pressure in the combustion chambers. If it is a high mileage car then what do you expect. I haven't heard of too many issues with their six or eight cylinder engines (I have with their 4 cylinder engines though). The only problems i have heard are with their M car V8s and V10s with bearings (and that's if you treat them harshly and don't keep up their maintenance schedule). Also not sure why i would listen to someone calling BMW V8s as junk when you obviously know very little about engines. The mechanic knows his stuff and he's probably just going along with whatever you say. Yes, i have two high end BMWs and never had any problems with them with their drivetrains.
