Noisy front X1 diff

We have a BMW X1 2011 model, the front diff is very noisy!!
BMW Brisbane have confirmed its caput. $5600 to replace is their offering
Spoke to a diff specialist, he said that post 206 BMW moved to an inferior design, where they used roller bearings instead of tapered bearings. The roller bearings design is a flaw and is causing noisy diffs.
Needless to say that I am very unhappy.
Is anyone else having front diff issues?
