Nikasil V8 engine block

by Nicky the bat from New York, NY | January 26, 2013

Very important on these car's does it have the original Nikasil V8 engine block or the updated Alusil engine block? BMW performed this warranty repair because the owners of these vehicle's at the time was experiencing a rough idle and stalling. This condition was common to many BMW V8 engines at the time because sulfur in U.S. fuels reacted with the Nikasil engine block material, damaging the cylinder bores until the pistons failed to seal properly. BMW's solution was to replace affected Nikasil engine blocks with Alusil engine blocks, which do not exhibit the same sensitivity to the sulfur in U.S. fuel. Sulfur levels have been reduced dramatically in American gasoline since 1998, so no additional harm should come to cars still equipped with the original Nikasil engines, but some damage may have already occurred prior to the change in fuel formulation. Great site to inform yourself on this issue, Koala Motorsport's website for more information about the problem with BMW's Nikasil V8's and why you should be careful when buying a V8-equipped BMW from 1993-1995. Otherwise a great car and I would highly recommend one.

A Good Driving Machine

by MrRed7 from Statesboro, Georgia | August 4, 2007

I purchased this car from an older person. It is THE best car I have owned. Has all the features standard that you would want and need. The handling isn't as good as a 5 series but it is a bigger car. The power is a lot of fun as well as the interior. I would recommend this car as a good used car value. The only thing to watch for is maintainence after the buy: it is a lot more expensive than your standard Chevy. Saying that; a BMW is a lot more car than a Chevy.
