BMW SE touring / swirl flaps destroyed engine

I was the proud owner of a BMW SE Touring 320D that has a full service history since bought in 2002 and has been kept in immaculate condition since. One of the swirl flaps became detached and was through a BMW design fault ! was sucked into the piston chamber and subsequently destroyed the engine ! There are none of the usual warning lights for this failure and the image of BMW as being an excellent and reliable manufacturer is destroyed as this fault is common on in models of this period. I believe up to 2006. Beware and don't expect any recourse from BMW trying to contact them about this fault has proved unsuccessful !!
