I hate to burst your BMW bubble but it is indeed a mechanical flaw. Google for the edmunds article about carbon in DI engines. The problem is virtually non-existent in certain General Motors DI engines due to proper design. That BMW has been out engineered by GM is very telling Plus Bmw touts their free maintenance as being so finely tuned to the vehicle while it is practically guaranteed that following that maintenance plan gives you a missing engine with hard to diagnose mechanical issues. My dealer took two tries to figure it out. And then for BMW to not own up to this problem under warranty is BS.
