just curious how many miles are on the vehicles in question...? i read this entire thread. not everyone with failures listed mileage, but for those that did, i cant recall anyone having much more than 20k on the odometer. Just speculating, but could that mean some cars may have faulty bolts from the factory while others may not? or are folks thinking this is just bad design and engineering? Im nervous as I just signed the papers to buy an 08 e92 with 39,500 on the odometer - and the warranty is already expired...!
also curious if anyone has paid a local shop to install the solid mounts listed earlier and what that might cost for labor? from the pics, it didnt look too bad of a job *if* you had the right tools. $179 for the part + labor is likely worth the piece of mind...!
