Looking for a shop in NY/NJ/CT for a engine issue X5M

Issues are found leaking cylinder #4, found cylinder #8 internal engine problem, coolant leaking lower hose and switch, turbo heat shell, leak exhaust.


=====================================
Problem was fixed, I have to thank one of the forum member Rikkem.
He was able to diagnose the fault code via the ISID on teamviewer.


Engine is running normal, the car was able to pass NYS inspection after a 6 month hustle.

The problem was FUEL mixture and it was leakage at the turbo to the downpipe, the part itself, gasket was $47 total. Base on all this information where the dealer tech said engine has to be replaced or rebuilt is completely BS. When i felt desperately to pass the damn emission test. while the dealer tech already charged $2000+ on some part that didn't even broken/crack on the fuel mixture process, air intake duct and crankcase vent.

i remember seeing a warranty extension for hoses, but I don't remember exactly. I would check with the dealer first to see if any of those are covered, then find an independent shop for those items that are not. But if you do want to go to one, ACM is my #1 choice in the tri-state region.

It has done all possible services at Dealer and replacement.

O2 sensors@4 on the downpipe, the intake air duct, spark plug, fuel injectors, and a lot of other works

I am looking for someone who can help than the dealership.

Bad experience, neglected taking care on car when it return to me ...damaged, got a cracked front lip back and broken side reflector.

Not sure any other part under the hood like hoses were crack or leak.

ACM are good but expect to pay an arm and a leg. My first pick is maximumpsi/bimmer clinic. If you need so much work Mike is your guy, since you are planning on an engine swap and power goodies consider rebuilding current motor with better internals. I believe Mike has the most knowledge when it comes to bmw's , engine building and fabricating in the tri state. He has build the fastest bmw in the U.S aswell , his f30 m3 is running low 10s.

I'm having the owner of Ghassan Automotive in Oklahoma make us a built N54 motor for the GF's 535xiT and they happen to do the S63 as well. You can check his Facebook page, he's not new to X*M's...tell him I referred you since it might help get me free upgrades :-D
