The guy sells parts. That doesn't give him a financial interest in the outcome and a motive to lie about how many sets of bearings he's sold. He sells gas pumps also; does that mean he'll lie if you asked him how many gas pumps he's sold.

BMW has a financial interest in the outcome (reason to lie); not a guy who sells parts.

But I will say this; he's clearly read this thread and made that kit to match my findings not to offer Calico coated bearings because of the decreased clearance. Instead he offers "treated" bearings -- most likely WPC treated bearings (although he doesn't say).

Totally understandable to me. Not sure why this is such a mystery. The demographics of this site are English speaking nations, and US & Canada are the largest ones of those. So it's natural that you will see more responses from those regions.
