The real issue is that the lease numbers are scarce to come by and don't look all that...

Well my BMW M57 engine needed to have very expensive carbon build up removed at 30k miles. Shall we go into the very widespread HPFP issues in the N54 engine?

Not sure about that. It might depend on whether it's an Xdrive model or not. Traditionally on the 3-series for example the xdrive msports didn't get the lowered suspension. Could be the same for the...

As weird a it sounds it's true. Then again BMW is doing a lot of things these days that would have seemed anathema (hybrids, EVs, FWD).
