Yup, doesn't sound normal and 50-70k is not the norm either. I have hardly seen such early failure on this or other forums. Mine is still original at 107k miles.

With a new cover I believe my indy quoted me $600-700 or so (I forget the exact number but it was in that ballpark).

I was recently quoted $400 for VCG leak fix at my local indy. They said it is minor so I don't need to do it right away. Will probably schedule it during my next oil change.

If you want to be sure, ask your indy how much it would cost to replace the chain, guides, oil pump, etc and perhaps do it proactively if within your budget.

A 15yr/150k warranty would/should be both reasonable and acceptable (to BMW as well as most owners; me included). I hope that is what they do.

See my thread here on my 100k+ 2012 328i: https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1353533

Next goal is 150k, then 200k, maybe more if it is still holding up well at that point.
