Due to a faulty engine component, BMW has stopped the delivery of two high-horsepower models.

The manufacturer emphasizes that it is not a recall.

Munich - BMW * has stopped delivering three sports models in the 3 and 4 series to customers.

This is reported by the

Business Insider

portal

.

The M3, the M4 Coupé and the M4 Competition Cabriolet with M xDrive are therefore affected.

The M3 is available as a sedan with 480 hp or 510 hp.

Buyers have to put down at least 82,500 euros for this.

The M4 Coupé is available with the same performance levels.

Prices start at 84,000 euros.

The M4 Competition Cabriolet with all-wheel drive, which costs at least 98,500 euros, is powered by a 510 hp engine.

The reason for the delivery stop are faults in the main bearing shells that are used in the biturbo in-line six-cylinder of the M3 and M4 vehicles.

Internal analyzes are currently being carried out at BMW to rectify the error.

The affected customers should be provided with further information as soon as possible.

BMW stops delivery of M3 and M4: It is not a recall

"In order to ensure that the vehicles are in a perfect and fault-free condition when they are delivered, BMW has initially blocked the potentially affected vehicles," a group spokeswoman told

Business Insider

.

"In this case, it is a question of blocking vehicles that have not yet been delivered and not a recall." We regret the delays in delivery caused by this error.

BMW produces the M3 and M4 engines in-house, but purchases their main bearing shells like many other components from external suppliers.

BWM did not say who the affected supplier is.

BMW only attracted the greatest attention with the announcement of a completely new vehicle.

For the first time in the history of BMW M GmbH, there will also be an M3 Touring *.

By then, however, the storage problems should have been resolved.
