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.

2013 135I coupe with dual clutch. Car will take about 2-3 seconds to accelerate when accelerating from a rolling stop. I have almost gotten into 3 accidents at intersections because of this. I'll press the accelerator when there is space for me to go making a left at a light and by the time the car reacts 3 seconds later it is very dangerous. One of the times my car popped into neutral by itself as I was making a left at a light and I stayed stuck at the intersection for 5 seconds after the light turned red already. Also, car clunks and jerks forward when coming to a stop. Car will move a few inches forward and I'm scared I am going to hit the car in front of me. All of these issues only occur with the air conditioning on.
