Ah, those Dutch.

The dealer gave me a final replacement unit but I then replaced it with a Fox unit (it was a decent aftermarket item at the time but I don't believe they support BMW applications anymore).

My symptoms were an oil leak followed by zero damping. Unless your shock has already been replaced it's likely that you'll be replacing it sometime sooner than later.
