Its called TUNING blew you motor.
When you have a tune thats not 100% and starts detonating,the pistons start taking all the abuse and pound on the bearings causing wearing and after a while they fail.

This is from the ESS website.

Application intended for: E90 M3, E91 M3, E92 M3 from 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011, on 2007 and 2008MY cars we recommend upgrading the rod bearings to latest BMW spec before installing this kit.
