I recommend you talk to a lawyer. After some legal advice, BMW dealership and BMW NA are responding to what I have to say. You have options.

This is why people should buy used cars either CPO or from another board member here who bought it new.

When it comes to the quality of a used car this is the ranking:
1) Private seller from this board who is a true enthusiast who hasn't performance modded the car

2) CPO car

3) Third party dealer who got the car in an auction (these are usually the worst cars because good cars are always sold privately or end up as CPOs).

I'd disagree with one. I know plenty of people who mod their cars and take even more delicate care of warm up procedures, changing fluids and belts, etc. where as I've seen "stock" low mile cars with 5-10+ years of neglect in the fluid/ warm up procedure department.

My point is I don't trust mods. Why buy a car which has more power train wear than one which has less.

If you have the time ask your lawyer to write a demand letter and file law suit . you may have better luck using a lemon law specialist but be prepared for an uphill fight , it may take 6-10 months before it is settled .
if you dont have the time all you can do is spend the money and hope for the best .
Best of luck . i don't understand how they can just deny warranty if the car was never modified or red flagged .

Are you doing full blown engine build, or just putting aftermarket rods and pistons?

I'm in a similar position - not identical, but similar. I've been contacting attorneys and thinking that there might be strength in numbers. Can you drop me a line so we can chat?
