How Hot Does Your BMW's Exhaust Get? 

Your BMW's Exhaust can get to 1,700 degrees, Fahrenheit under extended acceleration, as shown in the photograph below.

A leaking power steering system or gasket emitting oil can get onto the red-hot exhaust system and cause an ignition. Properly sealed valve cover gaskets as well as other components carrying high pressure flammable fluids are an absolute necessity for your safety. AUTOSCOPE can check your car and inform you of any presence or tell-tale signs of leaks.
