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.

I would like to write some key points about an interior parts of BMW from 1995-2005, I owned and like bmw not because it is a BMW but i have been in some rough times and places with it and always came out with almost not a scratch on me. but only e34, e38, e39.

The first thing that you notice once you open a door is their beautiful wooden trim cracked all over, second thing upon glancing on those charming seat curves is a plastic cover which will brake if it's not already and disable movement of a driver seat moreover steering making it hazardous to drive cause of their huge never cracking overlay dash, but wait don't forget about their window regulators that go out on daily basis as well as roof making your car a pool like environment. If Suddenly you are cruising on a highway at 65-75 and want to kill outside noise you most likely listen to a radio or have look at a time, then you just have to figure on your own since it's a know fact of dis-pixelation. And never never place your finger on a Heater / AC Main unit cause buttons will either won't comeout or fly out like a comet.

But wait their is an option offered by DAS IS ENGINEERING such as a cup holder which is broken and only use as for a decorations purpose since coffee going all over the car and on to electronics when it's broken and it does on monthly basis causing 100$ for a part moreover 150$ for the rear holders. Or that lacking mechanism of you glove compartment box always been broken......I could right more but you as a reader will become disappointed so i have to leave some for other to fill in gaps
