Maybe BMW fixed this issue with the later builds???

I was just thinking this as well... because I was thinking that it has been quite a while with no new reports of issues and lots of cars have been delivered.... I have taken my car on track for four days and had no issues, as well as several autocrosses.

Personally.. I would save your money and stick with the OEM.. or... maybe buy aftermarket and keep it around in case the stock one fails during a track weekend or something... but like you... I wonder if a running change ocurred...
