I think the competition from Tesla has forced the whole automotive industry to step up their game. In the case of the Germans, it has been an emphasis on performance. I really don't think their cars...

10 million kilometers for 400 cars works out to an average of only 25,000 kilometers, or about 15,000 miles per car. It really doesn't show much with regard to long term, 100k+ miles, durability.

Wow, can you get any more silly? If we use your convoluted logic here, every car should be torn down when you first get it to check for problems. :rolleyes:

There was a time limit on any claims where they had to be filed by a certain date, sometime in 2010 if I recall correctly. If the problem occurs after that, you're SOL. Therefore, the E46 unibody...

One cracked frame on the over half a million cars Tesla has produced over the last 10 years simply doesn't warrant your hysteria. :)

Munro didn't show any "frame/weld/unibody design flaws" that would require repair. There was no fix required. He just pointed out what was poor from a cost and manufacturing efficiency standpoint.

2 links. Where are the hundreds or thousands of complaints? Where is the recall?

It was namelessman's link. I tend to question it as well since I have 150k on my car and haven't noticed any issues. That said, if it's small cracks, it probably wouldn't be noticeable from a driving...

You were the one who brought up issues past 50k. Now you're saying that's an invalid point, effectively disagreeing with yourself. ;)
