It really upsets me that us out of warranty guys are just plain out of luck. You would think BMW would want to make things right. I know I will heavily consider getting a BMW again knowing what I know now.
UPDATE: Dealer just called me. He stated he talked with BMW NA and they are willing to cover half the cost of the original $2134 for the new lifters. In talking with the SA I asked why part 11-33-7-631-589 can't be found anywhere. He stated that it is the latest fix for the lifter tick and actually replaces the cylinder head solution. Hope this helps folks.
