Agreed, I've bent a few wheels and destroyed some tires over the years and every time I was told to go yell at a wall. A year or two ago I read an article that there were something around say 2000 cases for damaged wheels against the city and they paid out on.....1.

Yeah I know cities are usually horrible about stuff like this but I was just thinking about it in case the dealership hits me with like a ridiculous 10k bill. But I agree with you guys

Yeah I ran over the rock and drove for like 20 seconds until I could turn off the road because I thought I destroyed my front bumper. Once I turned off the road the low oil pressure light came on and I immediately turned it off that exact second. Looked under the car and saw all the oil just absolutely pissing out from under the car like it was an oil waterfall. I'm pretty sure I turned it off in time judging by the amount of oil that came out after I shut it off

I have to disagree with you. I hit a pothole with my S63 on aftermarket wheels, bending two of them and popping two tires. Contacted the city and they sent me to their insurance company which pretty seamlessly paid out $3k+ in about 60 days start to finish.

Pothole is their fault. Errant rock is not unfortunately. My opinion of course.

how did you manage to put it into neutral to get it on the flatbed? did you have to restart the engine for a second? my biggest gripe with the dct is that the only parking release is under the car

I shouldn't say always but rarely cases like yours are heard of. Its almost always a fail.

I couldn't get it in neutral I had to get a tow truck with dolly's to tow it to my house. So I was stuck on the side of the road for 3 hours until 4 am waiting for AAA to find a tow truck with dolly's🥴 and they couldn't find a flatbed with them so they had a tow truck come lift up the front and put dolly's on the rear and tow it to my house like that. Such a big pain in the ass

Are you lowered?

don't mean to be pessimistic but someone I know who this happened to was lowered so insurance didn't cover it because he was supposed to tel them about mods or something.

This guy is also a bullshitter sometimes so who knows, but just wanted to put that out there. This happens to so many people and it's why I don't lower mine.

It's lowered but nothing crazy and nothing illegal. Just enough to get rid of the wheel gap and I'm not tucking tire or anything. If I didn't have a front lip the ground clearance would be perfectly normal. That rock was so big it could've honestly happened to a stock ride height M3/M4. Here's a pic for reference

ok he was slammed so maybe that's why insurance argued.

You look almost stock, my lip has the same clearance on stock suspension. Good luck

I'm pretty sure that the only 335 to have a DCT was the 335is. My wife had a 335is Coupe but it was a 6MT.
For the US market, yes. Rest of the world (ECE) spec, no. You could get DCT in a N54 335i coupe from 07/08 onwards I believe

Yes, the 335is was a North America only car, with the specs requested specifically by BMW NA. It got the N54 engine while the rest of the line went to the N55. The bespoke stock exhaust had the most beautiful sound, with lots of burbles and pops when off the gas, one of the things that made us fall in love with that car, along with the Le Mans Blue paint, which was also unique to that model of E92. The exhaust was actually too loud for Germany and was illegal there.

Sadly, we didn't have the best of luck with that N54 engine, which was completely stock. The car did get tracked a fair amount, doing double duty until I got my M4 in 2016. We had so many problem with the car as a whole that were fixed under warranty that we decided to get an extended warranty. That more than paid for itself as the water pump failed, the second turbo (first was replaced under warranty), the coil packs, and finally, at only 70,000 miles, it spun a main rod bearing and the engine was replaced, all under the extended warranty.

She replaced the 335is in 2018 with an M3 CP, in Individual San Marino Blue with Individual Polar Blue contrasting stitching. But with this car she decided to go with the DCT.

Update for anyone curious: ended up not taking it to the dealership because on Saturday they told me they wouldn't be able to get to it until next week and they wouldn't even give me a loaner because my cars more than 3 years old... It doesn't sit right with me that they refuse to give a loaner to someone with the current model M car that they would've hit with a $5k+ bill. So needless to say they lost my business.

So I took it to an Indy shop and they said the oil pan was shattered and needed to be replaced along with the metal protective cover. Good news is nothing else was damaged or banged up so I lucked out there. Bad news is it's going to cost $3k but I guess it could be worse. Do you guys think that's reasonable? This is what rainy day funds are for so I'm just glad it was nothing serious.

But this is the second time this year I've come across large debris in the road (some might remember the thread of me swerving to avoid a fallen tree in the road) and it's getting pretty old lol

Is this typical? I am considering reporting the incident to MD but didn't think I would get very far. Out of curiosity...what evidence were you asked to provide??

You got lucky! I hit a similar sized rock but it damaged much more because it decided to hit everything on it's journey front to back including my MPE and diff. It also nudged the front bumper assembly up and damaged the two headlights. All in all, $35k worth of repairs and that's with the engine being 100% okay! It was covered by insurance thankfully. Here's a thread about it:

Went down to the shop today to take a look at the damage myself. If anyone's curious what a windowed oil pan look like here you go! They also turned a shard from the pan into a keychain for me which I think is hilarious and I might actually rock it lmao
