    Warning to all S63TU engine owners (2013 F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6) - BMW stops sales and issues recall of faulty oil pump

    The new S63tu motor puts out a ton of power in the new M5 and M6 motors but that power is useless if oil starvation grenades the engine. BMW issued an immediate stop sales notice on the new cars until the faulty oil pumps are replaced. Everyone who has the S63TU engine is affected (X6M and X5M owners are fine) and a sudden loss of pressure from the oil pump could lead to an engine failure.

    It is recommended to not drive the car, even to the dealer, and have it towed in once a fix is available. In the mean time we would recommend owners get a loaner from their dealer and have the dealer pay to tow the vehicle in for a pump replacement once it is available. No new F10 M5's or F12/F13 M6's will be sold in the mean time.

    Well a fuel pump dying won't kill the motor or else they would to save themselves money in warranty payments. This is more important to them due to the effect it could have on the bottom line not to mention the embarrassment of engine failures.

    I mean you can, you just might lose your motor. Best to not drive it to avoid any potential situations.

    So I wonder how BMW will feel about making your car payments on a vehicle you can't drive?

    Definitely something to bring up with the dealer. Get as much as you can out of them.

    I'd have a new loaner everyday until I try everything in the lineup.
