    They won't.... The cars that BMW made with this type of problem (E36, E36/7, E36/8, E46), some of their best selling worldwide cars. The amount that it would cost to fix all these would be astronomical. Especially since it mostly shows up years after warranty is gone, where they can easily claim abuse.....

    One wonders how they got some things so right, and others so wrong.
