If your car is still under warranty, and I assume that it is, it might be interesting if you took it in for service and see what BMW sez. BMW harps that the car is made for driving, has a history based on race heritage, tests the M3 to the limit at the Nordschleife, and is forever hanging its reputation on the ultimate driving machine. The next time I am at the track, and it will be VIR, if the thing decorates my engine compartment with power steering fluid, you can make book I will not clean it up and that the car will back at the dealer. The fact that the Performance Center is aware of the problem, then one can assume that BMW knows of the issue.
