Not a problem for honest people.
For the rest. . .
The dealers have apparently been told to protect the rest, or to obscure how much and what kind of maintenance is really required on these cars.
Either way, I'm less than impressed (at least favorably).

I used to drop in my local BMW dealer and check out any car that I was interested in... No more.
When I bought my 1988 M6 back in 1992 the selling dealer provided a 2 inch thick file of service receipts. The previous owner was a real piece of work. He brought the car back to the dealer because a piece of trim popped off the seat hinge- the fix involves snapping it back into place. My service advisor will still run a VIN and advise me of any red flags; I suspect that in many cases the person requesting the information did not buy the BMW in question from that dealer and doesn't intend to use said dealer for service, repairs, or parts purchases. Couple that with a demanding and belligerent attitude and I can easily understand why many dealers tell some non-customers to go pound sand...
