Obviously BMW figured out that the lack of oil cooling is prematurely killing stators, hence the redesign of the rotor with more openings to permit oil to cool the stator. Since there is no recall, owners are left to foot the bill when the stator fails beyond the warranty.
knock on wood. Over 50k here on the original
