I don't know. Why would BMW try to hide issues with 335i's initially with software changes despite knowing that they have a legitimate problem on their hands until they got slapped in the face with lawsuits? Why would BMW hide subframe issues with E46 M3's until they got slapped in the face with lawsuits? Why would BMW not address the 2007(EU)-2008 BMW M3's having possible defective bearings, and change all bearings for 2009+ M3's without replacing the bearings on 07-08 M3's? Let's face it, BMW tends to know about things that are detrimental to the well being of a vehicle but likes to hide it unless negative publicity becomes too hard to handle. It's not a company known for acting proactively. My personal opinion, feel free to disagree.
