Just looked at my recently acquired 01/15 built 428 GC and the chain guide is brown haha. I don’t have the symptoms (yet) but I’m at around 57k miles. I will pick around at my local dealers but since this isn’t a recall, the engine has to either:

A. Experience the whine for them to do the warranty work?
B. Blow up for them to do the warranty work?

I have until my odometer hits 100k miles to get this replaced preventatively as my Maxcare warranty ends at that mileage. Bmw knew they screwed up and they won’t stand by their product and give a lousy warranty rather than a recall.
