I dont have time to read through 90 pages on this just curious if someone can let me know. Thanks guys.
Another member went through the whole thread some time back. A good summary IMHO, take from it what you choose. Link below.

I guess BMW will be glad when the warranty runs out on all these cars!
You just have to go through the process. As I own and not lease going through the process was well worth it for me, and 100% paid for by BMW. Although, I think BMW should have paid me for my time too.
