I've been watching this web site for years, now when I need it, people start throwing stones.
With a legit complaint, the documentation and problems are there for everyone to see. If BMW had returned any calls or correspondence it may not have been pushed this far. I valued my 540ia, and we had great hopes of traveling near and far. But not in this car. Now you can't even drive it because the drivers seat and all memory adjustments quit working in the "compressed driver" mode. No one fits in the seat. And to beat all, the local BMW dealer, Fields BMW, who have several dealerships within 100 miles, will NOT even talk about the car much less attempt to fix it. (They had fixed it once before for this problem.) Nor will they drive it since it can die on the freeway at any time. This car was delivered with every option at the time and we waited 5 months to have it built. I have paid my dues to post on this board and feel that BMW has not supported us in a way befitting the class, size, and type of company they want us to believe!
If you are not interested, your mouse can skip over the topic! They are well identified.
Otherwise, I need some help and truly hope no one else has the problems with their car as we have!
Please remember, information is knowledge, you may not have a use for it now but it may come in handy later in your life.
