Not the GTA but while in Edmonton on business spotted an IB Z4MC on the East side this past Monday. With all the crap on the roads out there I wouldn't have had mine out. In saying that they get like 10 decent weeks of weather a year so I can understand...

Not quite sure to be honest, but noticed at 3000rpm it was making some irregular noise. Asked the dealership to take a look at it and pressed them to warranty it because of the common problem with the screws, etc. They ended up taking apart the unit, and in the end, are just replacing the whole thing.

the metal piece is God knows what at this point, honestly if you look at it its so mashed up its impossible to tell where it came from, if i get a chance to go in there again and see it i'll snap a pic of it,

as for what they are replacing i still dont know,

they just called me today and asked for receipts of my rims, suspension, and mufflers for proof that they do not affect anything with the engine (?? wtf) so i'm going along with it and then they should warrenty it and give me the downlow of whats being replaced,

im hopin for just a brand new engine like you SBMC :P
