Compelling reason Dave: Service and responsibility to the customers that bought the bikes. Forget the "bad form" and deliver substance.

Are BMW dealers afraid of BMW pulling their dealerships if they question problems with the bike? Dealers seem to just pass the buck by saying; "BMW has not informed us" and BMW says "See your dealer"...Pure Catch-22.

No compelling reason to make an inquire...what a crock!
This website and its users occasionally get the (arguable) benefit of my time and attention. You may want to put my user name on 'ignore' if you find my inputs leave a bad taste in your mouth. Alternatively, you may consider requesting from me a full refund of all the cash you have ever paid me for technical information.
