This problem is an annoyance. This "valve body" thing is scary, both to us and to BMW. My uneducated guess is that BMW's position is that:
  • The issue is very expensive to fix
  • Leaving it unfixed is not dangerous or harmful to the vehicle owner, and will not cause more expensive problems to occur. It's just annoying.
Take those two together, and BMW wants to avoid dealing with it at all. I'm not saying I agree, but I understand.
