I have 2700 miles on my Z3 Coupe. Yesterday, the engine light and ecl light came on, and the car started to stutter. I needed a tow.
I think this is disgraceful for a 3 month-old car. My 12 year old Mercedes 300E with 194,000 miles has never let me down.
I think there appears to be a lack of attention to detail at BMW. For example, my speedometer is at least 10% off, it reads high. BMW's answer, we're allowed a 10% error plus 2.5 miles/hr. Hardly an appropriate response from a manufacturer of a $40,000 car. Also, the glass sunroof has no interior sunshade, a nuisance in the Summer.
I intend to take up these matters today, but would like to share my concerns and dissatisfaction.
