EXCELLANT INFO "D-man" - you have done your homework & it shows!
I'm glad to see DIY promotion, most of these things can be managed by owners (with proper tools) Especially when they do get their hands dirty they really appreciate the quality that goes into their cars.
RE: BMW bushings, they're considered a normal wear item like tires, wipers, etc.. they are the "weak link" in your handling and get used & abused more often because we tend to push them harder then most other car brands. Thus lack of common complaint failure from other manufacturers.
Keep pumping the good info
