And even the M3's "kink" was a third party issue, not BMWs fault that they got delivered with parts that didn't stand under pressure up to spec.
So as long as it's a third party supplier, it's not BMW's problem. That doesn't work in the real world Jussi. It's still a kink as far as the customer is concerned. That is unless you don't consider an engine blowing up, a kink.
