    Job well done guys, the dealers are too lazy today to do proper fault finding, if the fault does not show up on the diagnostic machine, they just change parts, not mechanics anymore, just new part fitters

    OK. One little flaw with your posts: Viewing order. TY is not necessarily showing your follow-up videos in proper order, so I'm having to pay attention to the posting dates after clicking a link. I'm not seeing these from your channel, YT suggested the first one, and then I'm finding the rest in the suggested videos to the right. Perhaps put "1/4" or such on the titles?

    Given that the head can be re-machined to a certain point, does BMW offer different thicknesses of replacement head gaskets? Yours was a 0.3mm ~0.012" which by the cast in machining indicator limit wasn't approached.

    Where do you get such melodic music from? btw BMW i8 is my dream car. I am currently driving a 1999 Steel Blue Metallic BMW 3 Series 328i Convertible, that I had to replace the engine and drive train, due to overheating. The last owner used tons of stop leak instead of properly fixing the leak and it instantly overheated after driving it for 4 years.

    I did not look through everything and maybe you are aware....that water pump has a "rubber" or composite impeller. They can and will break off eventually and stop circulation plus clog up the coolant lines. Just saying. American Motor Corporation put these impellers in their 6 cylinder cars and while the car would idle forever without getting hot, just take it around the block and watch the geyser! BTW, they went out of business just after doing this stupid crap.

    never ever EVER have something you can fix your own self done at a dealership. shop rate is over a hundred dollars an hour!! so think about it, if it would take you four hours to fix something, thats like, six hundred dollars in labor!! dont take anything you can handle yourself to a shop!!

    Don't start a weekend racing hobby. After rebuild and a couple heat cycles you better go back in tightening all connections :) Wouldn't hurt to change the oil and filter after the cam lube has been flushed by hot oil circulation after a few heat cycles.

    the reason dealers especially prefer to swap engines then replace the gasket is because on average its cheaper. between the fact the engine is technically cheaper for them, combine with the time it took/takes to just pull the engine to replace the gasket, add in any other "hidden issues" or like this happened where 1 little thing stops you

    All that for a head gasket? The fact that it was continuously overheating related to a blown head gasket. It shouldn't have taken that long to figure it out. LOL I had a Ford, it was literally the same problem.

    How is having just the head taken off the engine equals to having the engine taken completely apart? Oh I know only is Samcrac's world does removing a part from a engine equals to taking a engine completely apart. All kidding aside hope it all works out for you.
