    Does anyone actually know what can cause a spun crank hub !?
    So many posts and theories
    But as it been confirmed yet what actually causes it ?
    Or is it a ticking time bomb and if your ticket is drawn your it ?

    I am. My understanding is that a small number (overall) of cars have been affected.

    What’s the typical mileage when it goes pop !? Does anyone know what the latest manufactured vehicle is that has had this happen to ?

    What’s all the chat about preventive fixes !?

    It's happened to every variation of F82/82/80 car from every year at all various mileages, some tuned, some standard. It's an absolutely TINY proportion of cars though which have had the issue. It's also been an even more tiny amount in the UK market compared to elsewhere.

    I know loads but But no one as actually confirmed what can cause it for sure . Or any preventative measure .
    Maybe it could be a manufacturing process on the hub that’s why only a few failures .
    Anyone know if bmw have said what the cause is ??

    I read that when putting bigger power down ie remapping, avoid downshifting to 1 when fast driving and leave gearbox speed setting to 2, not 3.This put less stress on the parts that could fail.

    Its got to be something sending a shock to the hub, like "kangarooing,",maybe.

    Or driving like a tit. I find it hard to believe that the level of knowledge of people buying these cars is so low. It would appear that half the owners have no idea about how to drive a reasonably high powered RWD car, and then complain that it doesn't drive like a drive by wire AWD VAG car that they have seen on YouTube being driven really fast innit.... This is not aimed at anyone in particular but christ how hard can it be to understand.

    Is that preventative measures, or actually spun hubs.

    Is kangerooing is due to too much power being put down and traction control kicking in (without the light coming on) ???

    Yes, it's an issue with S55's. Not related to a specific car.
