It went from running great to dead in about a mile. That was on a 07 525 though.

Its nice you caught this quick like.
Hope this is a fluke. I just installed a Wossner piston since I started burning oil w/ the OEM one.

I've got 200 miles on it so far and all is well. Lets hope it stays that way.

Send Wossner a picture and see what they have to say about it.
