Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Led running lights in passenger side tail lights have failed. Further inspection shows that the circuit board that houses the led tube lights has a malfunction due to poorly soldered circuit board. Left tail lights running light function fails completely (blinker, and brakes are still retained). Led tubes do not light up at all making the car less visible at night.

BMW "third stop lamp" (the break light) does not fit the 1series correctly. They fall off, crack, and disappear frequently. This is a common problem with all 1 series BMW's. as this is a brake light, it is concerning. I believe the part number for this item is (63 25 7164978). Here is a link to the part with a picture {} thousands of individuals are complaining of this problem.
