Right but I don't agree that there is no reason to ever have the dealer do anything. If no one even bothered reporting their problems to the dealerships how will BMW learn there is a widespread problem that needs to be corrected and a recall issues where other BMW owners (yourself included) can benefit from a free fix? I understand issues reported to BMW dealers are not the car engineer's only source of information for determining defects but surely it is a large source of their information and determining statistics for how widespread the problem is? Imagine if no one ever reported their long cranks or limp mode experiences...
