Appears to be effecting cars from Build week 35 - 45 (maybe more?).
I don't want to initiate panic on this (I know it probably will - but do this for your own comfort) - I think this issue is VERY serious indeed.
If you have a new M5/M6 and are nearing or have just had the first service - I urge you to be vigilant in checking oil level (leave it displayed on the dash), and check for leaks under the car.
We have now seen with Xavier that he is going through the nightmare scenario now (see thread: 3.000 KM and already back to BMW dealer
What are BMW doing about it?
while this is important to know everything on the subject I think it would be wise to stop openning new threads everytime something new arise about this issue, it is getting out of control, same goes for the oil reading stuff, it looks like it is all we see lately.
