So the car is a 2011 model then. Very strange you ended up with those bearings in a 2011.5 model (built 09/2010 and after). I have a 2011.5 built in 09/2010, and given my oil analysis from Blackstone, I'm positive I have the newer non-lead bearings.

Did this car have an engine replacement somewhere along the past? I thought the running production change occurred in late 2009 (mid-point in 2010 model production).
Current Stable:
2011.5 M3 sedan 6MT, Silverstone, no sunroof, no EDC, but most other options
2001 M5 LeMans Blue/Silverstone
2006 330i 6MT Red/black, ZSP, Nav, etc.
2001 Audi S4 6MT; 1996 Volvo 850R wagon; 1975 CanAm 125MX2
