Right nugget! Why would i lie? yes i am a Noob but i'm actually would would be called a lurker but the reason why i dont post is because of nuggets like you and dont have time to post as i'm too busy riding my bikes rather than the keyboard you sit behind!! I have spent £14k on a bike that is pissing oil out of the crank case now! So you may call it a lemon and yes i do like the bike but am completely pissed off with the build quality. If you are interested after the ecu was re-flashed the problem has gone away! The rear brake calliper, master cylinder, disc and pads were replaced. Also got given a full set of luggage free of charge! I had a switch gear sent from the production line. try getting that kind of service! Also a free acro end can! Now the bike is back at the dealers waiting for an answer from BWM what to do regarding the oil leak! In the UK we don't have a Lemon law! otherwise it would have gone back. By the sounds of it you love BMW so much you have it tattooed on your forehead!
