Hi folks, I could use some guidance.

I went to start my 2015 M3W up and fuel started pouring out from around the right side cylinder. The engine start without issue and seems to idle fine. I checked in and around the throttle body and see no source of the fuel. Before I start taking things apart I'm hoping some else has had a similar issue or can offer some likely areas I should pay particular attention to.

Thanks,
Robert

Robert have you checked the fuel hoses? They can leak at the crimped fasteners. Even if all appears well best replace with proper hose clamps, not worm drive clamps. I had a leak & the escaping fuel hit the LH aero screen & crazed the plastic. Changed for a Fairbourne screen.
