Say yours comes back at 60ppm. That means shits about to hit the fan and itís about to go.
Doesnít really work on the s65. Later engines had no lead, and all engines can fail spontaneously, without warning, via lottery failure.

ACM NJ at one time charged $2,499 based on their regional post. I am not sure if that price still stands though.

I recently did mine. Model year 2009 M3 at 103k miles. All blackstone reports were good but as you can see, the bearings for sure needed to be replaced. I am glad I did them for peace of mind. Obviously, the uppers were more worn than the lowers. Could I have gotten another 20k miles out of these? Most likely but at the end of the day the paranoia is gone, they've been replaced, I theoretically should be good for another 100k miles.

Agreed anyone who thinks otherwise is just fooling themselves.
