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.

The interior fabric peels off due to an inferior design in the manufacturing. The fabric is not wrapped all the way around the panels, they only apply it to the ends and cut it off to save fabric costs. The glue separates with the heat in the car, and eventually the car will have sagging fabric on all of the panels. It will come off very easily even if you simply touch it. I am getting mine repaired now at an interior repair shop. This is BMW, they should not be cutting corners (no pun intended) if you ask me.
