I think it's the first time someone mentions this problem, have you ever heard of it on stock engines?
Please (completely) put this out of your mind. It is absolutely NOT an issue with our cars.

Seriously, BMW didn't put a 9.5 quart oil capacity in the car just to let it sit in the pan.

He had a SC, meth injection and everything else under the sun and Gintani wants to blame the rod going through the block as a BMW oiling problem? Please

I don't think this is an issue.
Wet sump last I checked. Or is a wet sump with a scavenge pump considered a semi-dry?

Lets add it all up:

OMG! My Rod Bearings in Cylinder # 5 are having an Oiling Problem!!!!!!!!
