Well, my stator bit the dust this past weekend at 45,509 miles. First sign was the ABS light flickering on and off while I was still about 100 miles from home, followed shortly thereafter by the loss of speedometer, tachometer, and the OBC display. I managed to make it to within a mile of my house, but when I pulled in the clutch at a stop light, the engine died and there was no way to restart it.

Got a Rick's stator on order. There's no way I'm paying US$900 for the BMW kit.

I can't change my vote now, but I'm now in the 40-60K failure camp.
