    That’s really not good at all. A hole in the engine block? How can that happen? Manufacturing defect?

    It's old video. He explains himself, he didn't do a recall

    hole like that is usually caused by a seized/snapped conrod

    That engine is toast. Conrods normally come out front or back. My guess is a valve made a bid for freedom. Would be interested in finding out what happened.

    looking at his update video,he says BMW are saying broken conrod,or even little end break,which will explain why it's so high in the block.

    I was wrong. Good to know what happened but in this day and age surprising. Some of the comments said something about he missed a recall? Plus at the beginning of the video he says it’s still restricted i.e running in. If so, it’s his own fault. J

    yea just watching his latest video to see if any other updates,BMW aren't actually giving him a reason,it's the mech. at the dealer that told him that so who knows.
