I did, and they had heard NOTHING about this. Try making a service call and tell us how it goes.
I am guessing you called the wrong number as there are several folks on other boards who have called and had them come and help. Did you see the printed link I posted above? Pretty specific.

I have heard that BMW engines (at least the M engines) have the rings pre-seated. But you still have other moving parts, bearings, chains, etc. Plus the clutch, the transmission, the differential, and the half shafts.

But if you follow the book, you should be fine.
I think that your post is meant for a different thread.
