I understand, but I am thinking of owning this vehicle for 4 years and resell it without any concerns for the next driver.

"It looks like the newer version of the SULEV engine (N51) has a plastic fuel tank and a servicable fuel pumps available for it on the parts listings. The prices for these seem to be within reason. Therefore it seems like they might have improved the design of the fuel supply on the SULEV engine (as it can now be maintained for a reasonable price if the pump goes or filter clogs)."

Can anyone confirm this? I am still waiting for BMW NA to respond, but if any of you guys can answer, it would be nice and one less thing to worry about.
