X5 Hydrolock Engine

2003 X5 with 88K miles, dead as a door knob, towed to dealer, sounds a lot like the stories I am reading about a valve sticking from the cold and allowing fluid to leak into the engine. Looks like a blown head gasket, I am looking at either $6500 to rebuild the head gasket/ engine or a new engine for $12,000. I am not a happy camper and am not going to roll over easy and have these repairs made. Looking for others with the same issue, any resoultion, BMW stand behind it at all (as they made changes to the 04 to avoid this but did not do a recall bc its not a safety issue, yea right) Chris Wagner Dead X5.
