Gotta wonder why this didn't come up in testing. I mean BMW tries these cars in all sorts of temps, hammers them on the Ring and elsewhere, etc, and the M5 has been on sale for several months outside the US. I'd love to know more about the circumstances that trigger this failure -- or maybe their oil pump supplier had an unnoticed quality control issue?
