BMW Issues Stop Sale On M5 and M6


BMW in US had issued immediate stop sale on the new M5 and M6 coupe and convertible due to engine oil pump issues. The oil pump was said to not being able to provide sufficient engine oil to moving parts and thus causing severe engine damage. From the list of VIN numbers, it seemed like it affects only the US model and it is unclear if similar issues impacting cars sold here in Malaysia. Anyway, the number may not be huge but it is still a heads up to prevent catastrophic engine damage.

About Jack Lee

Jack Lee is an unqualified petrol head (some say, to be one, you have to own an Alfa Romeo) who is disappointed with cars which are getting more and more electronics and the lack of interest in cars shown by today's youths in general. He owns an almost 20 year car from Germany, which has almost 50:50 weight distribution, 3 pedals (manual, FTW!) and believes that everyone should spin at the last corner of Sepang circuit at least once in their life. He also holds the distinction in TCG as the person with the lightest right foot, of course, when compared with his colleagues' mutated cast iron right foot.
