I think you should not be immediately discouraged by the 6 series. Probably the 2012 has more issues than 2013 or 2014, but I suspect the people with real problems are still a minority. Most of the owners tend to post when they have issues. I bet if you go on MB / Porsche forums, you will find similar threads.

That being said, I had the same drivetrain malfunction issue on day 2 of my lease. The dealer replaced the injector pump on one side the very same day, filled tank, and gave me an iPhone craddle - nice service, I'd say. 12,000 miles later no problem at all. I agree that I would not like to own such an expensive to fix car outside of a waranty though.
