ALL late model cars have high pressure fuel systems.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)

Eschew eristical argumentation. I am responsible for what I write, not for your understanding of it.

BMW, and I think about 7 other car manufacturers, all call for using a fuel that meets certain specs. www.toptiergas.com has a list of the suppliers that meet the manufacturers' recommendations. If you do not buy your gasoline from one of the tested distributors, you can get buildups on the injectors, and run into problems. Their recommendations call for using a particular cleaner periodically if you do not. So, while most people don't really care what fuel they put into their cars, any of them could have issues if they don't follow the recommended fuel or preventive measures. The important thing in that spec is how much detergent is in the mix that keeps things clean which goes a long ways towards problem-free operation.

I think he's confusing the 535 with the 550 V8 which has well known issues.
