2007 BMW E92 335I - just took off from my home (car was not turned on since the day before atleast not after 8pm) 10 minutes into the road I turned on my A/C blower on max. On about 2 or 3 minutes, suddenly it slowed down and stopped working followed by plastic burning smell. As I tried to pull over as soon as possible, smoke started coming out the dashboard and just like that the car caught fire on the glove compartment and so on... I stranger from an tire shop ran up and used an extinguisher to stop the fire. Sadly there was severe damage to glove compartment, dashboard, electrical components like fuse box, passenger door, front and top interior.plus some money I had stored in the (was my way to the bank to make a deposit and pickup my fiancee) im still waiting for my insurance decision. Im very worried since I've search around in forums and I've read about some other people having same problems and other electrical fires with no response/resolution from BMW. I've owned a MINIcooper and 2 bmws. My cousins, aunt, granpa (E30) have bmws. Any suggestions?

I was driving on I-405N at around 70 mph, the pace of the very light traffic that night, and there were no other cars within 100 yards in front of me. There were no overpasses or pedestrians anywhere nearby. All of a sudden, my sunroof spontaneously shattered! a large piece of it broke off and then was blown backwards, bouncing off my roof and trunk, scratching the paint. The person driving behind me drove over the sunroof and shards of glass. Luckily, I had my sunroof sunshade closed which prevented the shards of glass from showering on me when the sunroof exploded.

Doors will not unlock using the key fob or central locking button. Locked doors will not open from interior of vehicle, no way to unlock the rear doors and front passenger door when they are locked. Only way to exit vehicle is through driver's door if manually unlocked with key. Passenger doors will not open and gas door will not open.

When the power door lock fuse is blown, passenger cannot exit or enter the car manually. You can't open the door using the inside or outside door handle. The car would lock you in. Only the driver side door can be open using the inside door handle. I have to let the passengers in my car climb over the driver seat to get out. This is a serious problem because if the driver door is jam or block for any reason then you cannot open any other door to get out. It gets worse since BMW put an under power fuse for the door lock which cause the fuse to blown often.

I was driving on the motorway and cleaned my windscreen when a piece of my vehicle fell off and became potentially a dangerous projectile. The failure is due to the screen wash jet cover and jet attached to it coming separated from the vehicle. BMW state that this can come off due to ice forming on the washer jets, so can occur at any time when temperatures are below freezing. The consequences are the cover and jet become separated from the vehicle potentially causing other vehicles to swerve, item acts as a projectile so could damage/crack a windscreen or potentially burst a tire if contact is made. To correct the failure the part needed to be replaced. Old part is not available due to coming off vehicle whilst on the motorway.
