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.

My 2007 525xi has encountered the same problem covered by NHTSA campaign 08V384000 in 2008 which disables the front airbag. My for recall in that campaign ended in 2006. I was able to verify with BMW that the part number for the seat to repair the issue in MY2007 is the same as MY2006. Has any tracking of the occurrence in MY2007 occurred" why would the same part not be covered under the manufactures extension to the warranty of 10 years unlimited mileage" this is approximately a $1200 repair to replace the seat as BMW does not sell the sensor mat without the seat.
