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.

Since the alternator wasn't working...you can't start the car. I initially thought that the battery was bad since the voltage reading on the battery was just over 13V. Took it to the dealer to debug and repair. Be careful doing this yourself. Read the BMW boards. This is not as straight forward as doing it on an American vehicle.
