Yes, there was a run of bad points a few years ago that a lot of dealers/suppliers got from a reputable and popular brand (can't remember off hand, if some one mentions them I'll remember). Ted Porter clued me in. The deal was the block that rides on the shaft was too long buy just a bit, throwing the point gap off. When I ordered mine they were in the process of measuring the blocks on the points to find the bad ones. I think the issue has been resolved, but you can always call the Beemer shop and talk to Ted. He's a nice guy.
