I think we might need to start keeping track of this. Anyone else agree?
Woah there boy!

The S54 engines failures were exactly that. This is a much smaller issue, yes an issue, but its not engines blowing up.

I suspect there is a common faulty part where a manufacturer that BMW is using has dropped the ball that is causing this, much like the Electronc Fan Failure on the 3 series and X5 in 2001.
