Finally, a common sense response. Wish people understood the difficulty in mass producing parts to exact spec with absolutely NO FAULTS. You want a hand built, hand inspected car, its going to cost a bit more than 70k.
Cars are machines, made of many parts from many manufacturers, and sometimes somewhere along the line, they fail. Every part can't be tested by BMW for 100 of hours prior to being placed i your car, for no other reason then they will then be used parts with less life on them......that is life, that is reality.
To the OP: sorry for your frustrations, but take this time to enjoy your slow loaner so that when you hop back into the ///M it will feel even faster
