X-Drive Transfer Case Issue?

Long story short, my girlfriends 08 328xi started making a funny grunting noise, that she pointed out to me last week. Sounded like it was coming from the power steering pump, so naturally I figure she knows her car better than anyone I made an appointment to get it checked out.

Dealer calls us today, and tells us that the transfer case was going out, and theyre putting in a new one, we just owe $50 for the deductible.

Has anyone experienced or is there any other cases and issues with these x drive units. Just curious? Love the x drive in the winter, and I know BMW is fairly new to awd, Im sure tha they are still working out all the kinks. As far as I know its only been in their cars since e46 right?

Ill ask the dealer exactly what went wrong and post up the details. I dont think a PTU unit should fail at 50,400 miles. But its a car stuff happens.
