Yikes -- is the R56 a piece of junk?

Popular UK-based Mini2 board reporting problems with the R56...Doesn't sound like good news for US sales if these are for real:


On this thread, Paul Mullett, the major force behind Mini2, describes his problems with his early build (On mini2.com, Paul is sort of like what Jon is to Bimmerfest -- imagine Jon buying a new M3, then having it in the shop for 1/3 of the first two months of ownership - not good.)


Or should we expect BMW to have sorted out the early build problems by now:


I tell you, these threads had me stopped dead in my tracks...
“Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught.”
