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.

Blows a horrible smell the first few minutes it runs. This is clearly a engineering design problem that BWM will not own up to. They even have a service report called 'musty odors in the air conditioning system' and how to disinfect the system. They acknowledge that they are looking at solutions, but won't admit it is their problem.
