Thank god for warranty. HPFP AND Fuel Injectors dead (2010 E92 335xi N54)

A few days ago I noticed my car (10' N54 E92 335xi) had a noticeable vibration on a cold start. Any other time I would start it during the day, everything was fine. Car seemed to run fine as well. I looked it up and assumed my injectors were going bad so I put a service request in at Sewickley BMW outside of Pittsburgh (I noted bad injectors in my request). They're always really busy and take days to get back.

Tried to start the car this morning and the first start failed.

Second start worked but the car was grumbling terribly, shaking violently, sputtering, RPMs were jumping from 250 to 1200, service engine light came on, smoke coming out of the pipes. I turned it off and had it flat bedded to the dealership (Ironically my roadside assistance card / welcome kit came in the mail yesterday despite buying the car 6 months ago).

The injectors were failing AND the HPFP needed replaced. The HPFP had been replaced at about 5000 miles under recall when the previous owner had it.

Luckily I'm still under factory warranty. Needless to say, I will be selling this car as soon as my warranty up January 2016. I'll probably end up in another bimmer, I may just lease from now on.
