I've done this replacement before on my N55 and no issues. Same procedure except I did the priming process as well, but that's just weird. I imagine if there was a oil pump/pressure issue it would have thrown a code before seizing. If no warnings occured and it just seized that's just odd.

What's real strange with all these threads is it seems that the engines don't just go to **** but they straight up seize. How the hell do they seize!? Spin a bearing or something, but seize? wtf
