It's already been discussed these diff bolts are def weak, but you're so admant that you're right, yet you're still on this forum proving you case to a bunch of strangers. Go tell the dealer; b/c if you're so confident in your case they would've fixed the car already. Good luck
I posted to get advice.
I'm collecting contrary viewpoints. Useful exercise. These threads always bring out people who just want to argue with you because they enjoy being contrary.
I have a very good relationship (at least with sales) with the dealership. I buy a new BMW from them every two years. My goal is to be as knowledgeable and prepared as possible for the process to resolution before I begin the process, and my goal is to hopefully preserve that relationship. There's nothing wrong with knowing you are in the right and knowing your options. I come from a family of litigators; there are three attorneys in my immediate family. I simply don't accept (and see no reason to) personal loss unless I am in the wrong.
