BMW didn't design the components to support that amount of power. Many build the engines and forget to beef up the other supporting components.

+1 Agreed 100%. I try to warn about the 2nd, 3rd order effects of modifying for power gains. The quote about water finding a way very succinctly spells it out.

I bought mine to protect against the potential 8000+ dollar calamity of replacing the rear, axles, shaft etc.

This is exactly why I bought mine. Just for preventative measures. I'd rather fork up $1,xxx than north of $8k.
And if I ever decide to add power, I'll have the peace of mind that my whole rear end will have the support needed to withstand it.
Happy motoring
