In the case of a car, which cost tens of thousands of pounds and would be expected to cover well over 100,000 miles during it's lifetime I would expect the warranty to reflect that!! Failures at sub 50,000 miles are unacceptable...hell I think anything like this failing at less than 100,000 miles is out of order, especially when they cost over 1,500 to set right.

Stories like this might put me off buying an E92...
I agree, although white goods like fridges are generally held to have a 'normal' life of around 5 years.

These failures are premature, hence the 'goodwill' gestures by BMW.
