If you do, you will also know that the rod bearings lawsuit is a longshot.

Perhaps the outcome of any litigation results is a "bone" being awarded to the plaintiffs even though I am sympathetic to them in spite of my doubt that all of those affected by rod bearings have been honest. It doesn't really matter does it unless one owns a rod bearing failure vehicle?
You really don't know what you're talking about.

Can we agree to this?
You post the result of the rod bearings' lawsuit outcome.

My money goes on a settlement rather than a ruling.
The plaintiffs have to prove their case in court and being one familiar with the filed complaint that alleges BMW is in violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty, breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing, and common law fraud, all I can say is that proving that in court will be no cakewalk.

Good luck to those that feel agrieved. Seriously!

As one that is a candidate for a rod bearings failure in my M3, you can be sure that I have an interest in the lawsuit. However, when I placed the order for my M3, the rod bearings topic had been around for years. The question was "Do you (that's me asking myself) think a rod bearings failure is a likelihood or not over a 200k mile run?"

After reading all I could find on the subject, the decision was "Place your order". And that happened.

With less than 1k remaining on the factory warranty, still reading rod bearing OMG horror posts by individuals asserting that which no one could independently confirm, I did what may very well prove to have been a very stupid financial thing - purchased an extended warranty that was an exact copy of the factory warranty that added four years of coverage. Surely, by 2021 the rod bearings matter will be dead. We're a year away and it's still around.

In the meantime, just in case things go badly in the lawsuit and the S65B40 in my car has a rod bearings moment, I will replace what has to be replaced thanks to years of stuffing money into S65 v.2.0 fund. Yeah, I am keeping mine, rod bearings, gas guzzling, increasing insurance costs (thanks to accomplished crashers) because no matter the engineering, the S65B40 is the BMW unicorn engine of a lifetime in my humble opinion. #ymmv

I am curious about the lawsuit, but it has no impact on me. I bought a CPO M3 in 2011 and changed the bearings when the warranty ran out in 2014 when the car had 60k and will change them again.

It could have an impact on you as one possible remedy is for people who proactively changed their rod bearings to receive a reimbursement.
