I don't think that will be necessary. I think proper warm up should make the problem dissapear. All of the mention I've heard of that issue are from new M3 owners, the problem should go away. If it doesn't, then yes, you'd have to do a replacement, hoping that the problem doesn't repeat itself.
See if it happens with proper warm ups. The way I do it is, I don't go over 3.5k untill the lights have all disappeared, after that she runs real smooth. If I'm in a hurry and don't warm up properly there are always weird noises of some sort (that eventually go away) and the car doesn't run as smoothly.
