I had mine replaced recently, but am still paranoid since if yours were "checked" but still broke off, then they either didn't check it OR it didn't matter (i.e. the area's at fault that BMW's not owning up to).
They did a visual check, cuz that's what I asked for. Had I actually read the Bulletin, and asked them to retorque them it may have been avoided.

Of course now I'm paranoid so I think I'll have them checked soon. I do a lot of 140+ mph driving (at least until June when I leave this winter wonderland).
Yeah, I hope my dealer is as good as yours. They seemed to do a pretty thorough job the last time I was there, but then again they didn't quite fix my front camber problem either.

I've got a good gash on mine from driving in Boston. I hope they made a note of it the last time it was there and they don't screw me like your dealer did to you.
