Exhaust Flange Seal Separated Causing A Leak And Faults

ok on my 3 hour trip in the first 45 mins my service engine soon light came. i took the car to autozone and they ran some test on it and they told me it was something to do with the exhaust. so after i got back from my trip i scheduled a appoitment at the bmw dealership. they ran test and came back saying the exhaust flange seal separated causing a leak and efficiency faults!! i explained to my advisor that this didnt start to happen until i got my rims painted and he told me the last time i had my car there that they didnt notice the prob and that he think someone might have been messing with exhaust or something but wasnt for sure.. he said this prob just dont happen everyday and someone has to untighten the screws there or something like that! this whole situation is just weird if the rim shop would do something like that.. and on top of that my rims are chipping already i guess cause of the salt on the roads when i went back home this SUCKS!!! what should i do??!! i already paid for the exhaust but what about the rims now??!

Now that is funny. You are the one that posted the blog the other day about drivng on a three hour tour right? Did you pick up Mary Ann or Ginger?

Still Sorry about your Bro.

Well the obvious answer is to take the rims back and get them repaired. I would think they didnt do something right if they are flaking or chipping now.


You also posted this article explaining the issue with the check engine light.

As for the exhaust flang issue, I am not quite sure there is anything the painters could have done to cause it. If i remember correctly that flange is built into the muffler and is not a serviceable part meaning the entire muffler has to be replaced. So dont let the flange thing hold you up.

Maybe you should just take the rims to the painters though that way you will know that noone has messed you up.
