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.

2004 BMW 330 Owner Comments

problem #1

The xenon headlamps on my 2004 BMW 330I completely failed. The headlamp rear projector bowl on this model is prone to overheating which leads to the delamination of the projector reflective materials resulting in complete headlamp assembly failure. Replacement assemblies from the dealer list at ~ $600 for each side of the car. This a commonly known issue in the BMW enthusiast community - I have also witnessed the problem firsthand on two other BMW 330is of the same model year. When the issue happened to me, I was unable to drive the car safely at night as the only illumination available was from the parking lights. This is clearly a safety issue and a product defect.
