Misfires on multiple cylinders.
Recommend replacing all 8 ignition coils with factory updated coils and spark plugs (fouled due to excessive fuel) $1,229.00
Black Smoke from the tail pipe on acceleration.
Recommend replacing all 8 fuel injectors due to them leaking. $4,418.00
As for other components that will need to be addressed but not as a part of the diagnostics side of things is as follows.
Replacement of all 4 crank case vent lines (cracked or broken) $950.00
Replacement of all turbo coolant lines due to leaking coolant. $2,516.00
These repairs will probably be cheaper to do when making repairs under the class action but I did want to bring them to your attention.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed or if you have any further questions.

IMHO all this should be covered under the N63 Customer Care Package.
I did not think this is going to be easy as far as having BMW stop the excessive engine oil leak but this is getting ridiculous.
Any ideas?

N63 program

I just took my 2012 550i in for evaluation. The service person indicated that unless it needed a new engine, BMW will perform the evaluation and repairs at their cost.

Basically my car is using oil like crazy, smells very rich as I think the O2 sensors are reading the excess oil as gas (carbon) and is burning oil as the engine heats up. Lots of blue smoke.

What should I expect from the dealer ?

Sure they might be q minority in being lucky owning used BMW's but I know my dad takes care of them properly as well.
I agree ... I have a 2011 750i M sport 90k miles , i got it with the new index 12 injectors and i have a flash tune with a jb4 on top , downpipes, cold air intake and a few other performance add ons and at the risk of jinxing myself I haven't had any issues with it ... I did have the " oil burning " issue but after i changed the oil cooler plug with the titanium from Sergey @ that stopped and i'm also getting cooler oil temps ... also the cold air intakes dropped my iat by about 40 degrees...and I ALWAYS change my oil every 2500 miles .. it's just something i've always done with all my cars and it is a small investment in the long run since i drive my cars hard and so far they run great ..

My car is approaching 200k miles. How can I find out if this campaign has been completed on my car? Im not having any issues. But I would like to keep it that way. Of course I change my oil every 5k and use nothing but Liquimoly synthetic from the day I bought it. I also keep fresh plugs in it every 50k miles. Just to list a few things.

How Do I Know if My N63 Engine...

With the car's VIN a BMW shop can tell you whether your car is a member of any of the class action lawsuits (there are more than one).
