I feel sorry for what happened to you, and was really concerned that a stock car can have a blown engine so early, as my M3 is really stock...my concern now started to fade away though.
It's a sports car, not a Prius. He obviously bought the car to drive it, not putz around to the grocery and back. Occasional street racing and brief times at very high speeds should be fine if the motor is stock, it was designed for that.
It just sounds like a 1-off issue to me. BMW will probably replace the engine so long as they determine it was not caused by an aftermarket part or some tune messing up the A/F ratio.
