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 had this beamer for two years, and a week after I had it the a/c would just come on automatically when I turned the car on. Then I would turn it off and while driving it turned on again. I turned it off thru the i-drive and the knob for high low, but still it comes on without me turning it on. Burdick bmw said they fixed the issue that next day but they did not. I told them time and time again that this was happening only to hear them say nothing is wrong. Also I purchase custom after market rims for $1300.00 new and in perfect condition. But when I put them on the beamer the car shakes at 70 mph. If I go to 80 the steering wheel vibrates alot and even the passengers can feel the shaking.
