No signs. I was just driving down the highway and noticed a lack of power, then a total loss of power and pulled over. I did just have an oil leak serviced under warranty by the dealership. Just got it back Tuesday.

Maybe the leak wasn't fixed, and oil hit the exhaust?

My condolences man, I hope everything works out in your favor.

That's a horrifying thought. I'm having an oil leak fixed right now.

That was an engine fire
You didn't do anything related to the engine with carista

Most likely fuel related fire

^^^ My thoughts too.

Wow no fun at all. Glad you escaped the flames. I'm not a fire marshal, but it doesn't look like an electrical fire to me. Fuel leak or oil leak + a hot turbo & you have the recipe for a large fire. Hope the insurance company makes you whole again. Let us know what they say the cause of the fire was.

PS your car was NOT modded.

Got a P0145 code and P2275 code yesterday on the way home from Fastivus. I cleared the codes this morning when I got to work so we will see if they come back on my commute home later.

Maybe. It originated at the rear of the engine bay. The leak was from the cam ladder seal.

This was taken the evening of November 18. The night that I took possession of the car.


... And this afternoon...

I have now put more miles on it than the previous owner. It may sound stupid but it just feels a bit more mine.

Looking good.

Easily one of my favorite cosmetic mods.

I hate to watch you go but I love to watch you leave.
