I get your point about the US, but the M57 engine dates back to about '99 in
Europe and so now so getting quite old and many with high miles. I believe
that the injectors are already one of the known high failure items so as the
car gets older I expect many others will encounter this problem.
The intention of my comments here is just to give an honest review of my
experience as when I needed help I drew a blank trying to research this for
myself on the WWW. Now that I've created a thread for comments on this
issue then what follows can be useful for others. I believe that these
newsgroups are searchable via Google.

quite interesting to know about this I am kind of researching about
possibly buying a 530d ( E39 ) which I think has this enginer doesnt it
? I know that Peugeot injectors are quite expensive as well, ( about
100 ukp ) and I also know that they are quite tight. I don't see any
reason why it would effect that many injectors though, perhaps spraying
a little oil around them might stop the corrosion from getting in and
prevent the problem ? Inkectors probably need replacing/ cleaning
adjusting after some amount of time anyway..
