You said the car had 5000 mi on it and it was in the shop? You said this is a "known issue"? If you obtained title to the car, you may want to disclose this to NHTSA (https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/index.cfm) and get full disclosure on the defect, because NHTSA will investigate. This way all of us will benefit if there is a safety related issue with a build defect in the A-pillar in the e70's. Hopefully it is a one off occurence in the 2011 model year.
