Default Class Action Lawsuit(s) for BMW M3 2008-2013 Rod Bearings in S65 motor

Would like to start an open discussion and allow members an opportunity to post if they have been effected or had experience with these 2 lawsuits. Both are pending and both appear to have been filed by the same law firm.

NJ Federal Court Class Action lawsuit filed November 2015

NJ State Court Class Action lawsuit filed July 2018

Not a lot of interest here apparently. In California, I haven't seen anything. Knowing the parts are ~$1,000 and labor is ~$1,000, BMW may not care as much as they did on the E46 M3 rear subframe which was more.

Thousands have already paid to change bearings preventatively. Hundreds have suffered very expensive engine failures that, in most cases, BMW did not accept responsibility for. And tens of thousands are probably unaware there is a potential issue because their motors are running fine and they are not on any of the bmw forums. I changed mine myself in 2014 when my cpo warranty expired.

Hence why these 2 lawsuits are of great importance and magnitude.

I've seen 20 plus E46 M3s have bearing issues. It is a clear and present issue nationwide.
