I don't buy this at all. BMW has a thriving/vested interest in selling used BMWs. If all these engines were just falling apart after 100k miles, the forums would be jammed with people screaming about it. I can't recall one, single forum post about someone with a worn out BMW engine due to following mfr. change intervals.
