@OP- That's a hell of a list! Reason I only own BMW's under warranty.

With that said, I hate that you are being told such ignorant excuses from the dealerships. Have you tried contacting BMW NA?

That sucks...seems I now have a weird jump in acceleration between 0-20 mph. Even passengers notice it.

This has to be a know issue that dealerships are unwilling to address.
