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.

If BMW did anything to resolve (shortening the pipe), it didn't work since I was burned like others by a 2010 model. I owned a 2004 for 7 years and never had an issue. Not that the possibility wasn't there, but it never happened. I checked to see if laser could remove the scar, but was told it would not.
