You dont want to give them the chance to spew random stuff about why the fuel system is your fault. Cause at the end of the day, yes you can sue, you can do all you want, but when it comes to whose got a stronger communication bridge with BMW, your not that person. And you can whip out your manual, your gas flap sticker, and they will probably have an excuse or a TSB or something.

Yes call me paranoid, but my paranoia exists to help me make warranty claims as easy and painless as possible for me.
Out of respect I will not call you paranoid, but, sincerely, you are cautious on the 87 issue beyond any reasonable need. Lots of smart people on this forum like 91-plus for other very valid albeit subjective performance- based reasons, so, at least, you are in the majority; but perhaps for the wrong reason.
