M dynamic mode in the rain? Sounds like you were up to something in terms of spinning the tires or drifting for fun. Or you are just stupid which does not sound like it is the case.

Listen man this is total crap BUT you really can't give bmw any excuse to void a warranty and unfortunately this is as much evidence as they need to show clear evidence of redlining the car at a speed 1/4 of what it is supposed to be at redline. Only a burnout (which is not just smoke-it means any spinning of the tires without much forward motion) Usually this produces smoke but in the rain it will not but still a burnout
Easy buddy, even with M dynamic mode, you can't spin the tires all the way to redline. If they did, something was wrong with his stability and traction control.

I think BMW jump to a conclusion way too fast in this situation. Burn outs and other kinds of abuse should show excessive wear on other parts of the car such as the clutch and flywheel, axles, and subframe mounts. If those parts are fine, and the diff just falls off, don't you think there might be some sort of design flaw?
