So, I just installed a new seal per the instructions on this forum. Pretty easy! No issues! Not the response I expected on the problem from BMW, but for $36.00 (new seal) and an e-mail, I have a newly installed seal, a new hat and a key fob! Rapman
My car is still under warranty/maint plan so I hope they agree it's a wear and tear item and replace it (have appt in a couple of weeks). If they give me some bs that it's purely cosmetic, I'm gonna blow a gasket.
