Good (but heartbreaking) story. Did they figure out why it caught on fire?
: Hey don't feel too bad, my last car [Sentra SE-R] caught on fire while I was driving it and burned up. Follow the link below to read the story and see the pics (scroll to the bottum)
: : Does anyone know of fuel injector failures on the new 323? One of the injectors on my car (425 miles) failed this week causing high pressure fuel to spray all over the engine. The gas then began vaporizing on the engine and exhaust. Lucky for me there wasn't a spark. The dealer picked up the car and determined it was a defective injector (which had to be ordered). Three days later I have the car back and all seems well, and the stench of gas is finally out of the interior. This is not what I would expected from my first new BMW.
