If you look at FPautmotive IG theres information on why the oem hub fails.

I spoke to Kies, Auto couture, bimmer clinic, munich motorsports. All not only suggest the full solution but even said they wont do a CBC.

VAC is too far for me. I have asked the forum for places to do CBC and i dont get much feedback.

Time to move on.
Have you spoke to Petrol works or RK Tunes on long island? They might do it, I would check with them.

Just sell your car man. This thread makes it crystal clear you aren't enjoying it anymore. My 2 cents.

Clearly you don't know what you are talking about.

Plus, very few SCH lead to full engine replacement and most just need a timing repair which is MUCH cheaper.

Also, I had 2 e46s and both had failed VANOS early in life. One at 15k miles and the other at 26k miles. Thank god I was stock so warranty covered it because that repair is not cheap.

I think you are looking at the past with rose colored glasses.

I guess people just don't realize that manufacturers are not in the business of building cars you can mod to all hell and then pay for your failed engine because of such mods. In fact, I don't know of any business that does that. Crazy how business works.

For the stock failures, that sucks, but the error rate is likely no higher than any past M car.
Not factoring in $10K core deposit.
