Am I the only one thinking that someone may be conspiring against Mr. Spira?!
If no one is trying to kill him then I would say definitely after market mods.

The dealer and BMW NA decided to replace all eight (8) fuel injectors as well as other fixes. I picked the car up on the evening of November 2nd and barely drove the car. The next day, November 3rd, was when the fire occurred. And it happened just like I said. Both my kids were in the car - we had only 15 seconds to get out prior to the passenger compartment having been engulfed in flames. It was absolutely insane.

And what the hell do a set of HRE's have to do with the engine catching on fire and exploding?

And yes, their was a large warning indicator that was all across my windshield on my HUD. Never seen it before.

And the passenger's door would not open and I had to drag my daughter out my side of the car. My 9 year old son, who was sitting behind me, got out very quickly. I burned my hand as I got out of the car as the flames were already sweeping past the driver's door.

You think this is a joke? Not a joke to me and my family.

Although, I do have to admit, the Domino's guy driving past the car engulfed in flames - would be funny if it were not so absolutely stupid.

What terrible events! What type of malfunction did the service center say you experienced that ultimately required all 8 fuel injectors to be replaced? Do you have any aftermarket software or other engine mods? Just curious as a lot of us like to personalize our cars. Glad to hear you all escaped!

This probably from the compartment fires they recalled that caused this fire. I had an 2010 X6M, it got lemmon lawed and I had it for 10 months and it was in the shop for 3 months. one Issue of the recall was the fuel pump and a pump that goes to the turbo or something that was causing sparks and caused fires that they fixed on my car. probably this car had those problems.

Wow I had my X6M 2010 got its 8 fuel injectors replaced because it had a lag start and black smoke coming from the exhaust.. Thank god this did not happen to my X6M. but my X6M ended up getting lemon lawed regardless because it had too many problems, It was in the shop 3 months out of the 10 months I had it.
