The statement about factory stuff lasting much longer is true for FCABs across most BMWs. However, the XI units are fluid filled unlike the solid rubber used in the FCABs for other variants. That means there's less rubber to resist deflection and it wears much quicker.

PM me if you're interested in selling your lollipops. I do an FCAB pre-pressing service for forum folks.
