Who said that BMW is screwing their customer? How do you know that its their fault?

*If* the engine was part of the SA (it wasn't a recall) - if you (and any prior owners) declined to participate for 8 years in the SA program they offered - I don't see how that is BMW's problem.

Owners have obligations too.

35k on a 2003??! I think your car committed suicide, cause it didn't want to live locked up in your garage anymore.
