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.

Near miss a couple times..........whenever sitting still for a period of time then go to take off there is a big bluish gray smoke cloud. At the same time the car will take off then do a jerky stop and go again. I've almost been rear ended many of times. If sitting somewhere for longer then 2-3 minutes the car is surrounded by this smoke. Its a known issue with BMW. To me this is a safety issue along with environmental and health issue.

The oil cooler adapter plate is defective the O ring is defective and leaks oil all over everything including wires. If your car doesn't have an external oil cooler, the plate, with the O ring seal will leak oil. The other side has two holes that can be machined for the external oil cooler, but if your car does not have that feature you will have oil leaks. Common oil leak on the V8 N62 and N62tu engines that would be in the E65 7 series and the X5 E53. This is the bearing block where the alternator mounts to. There is a gasket that develops a bad leak because of the seal failing. The seal has no use to the engine it is just there just in case if you get the oil cooling option and if you choose not to get the option your car will leak oil because the seal is not substantial and the oil has no where to go, so it leaks out of the gasket. The leak can be quite substantial.

While driving at 25-30mph, the vehicle stalled losing all power including the power steering and having to coast into the breakdown lane. This is the second time in 3 months. After sitting for 15 minutes and 5-10 "no starts", the vehicle finally started and drove normally. The dealership is unable to replicate the event. There is a current power supply recall on several BMW models demonstrating the same symptoms. BMW states that the power supply on the 750li is different from those vehicles under the recall. This model should also be included as I have read several similar complaints on the BMW forums. This is a very dangerous safety hazard in which many BMW 7 series owners are experiencing.
