I am working with channel 4 news here in San Francisco. I promised to provide them with at least 100 names and phone numbers to prove that these are not isolated incidents and that BMW has been negligent in its handling of complaints and concerns. As soon as I have their commitment to peruse the story, I will call the PR
person at BMW USA 800-831-1117 and bring them up to date of what I have been up to since our last conversation. I think anyone who has either had or currently have sub frame problems and still have their vehicle deserve not only reimbursement but some type of compensation for devaluing our vehicles.
With all the new BMWs due to be released in 2006 and 2007, and in addition to all the new VERY VERY competitive vehicles, I’m sure it will be in their best interest to hush us up now before I am able to get this on the air. If this segment does air, I plan to copy the programming and I will send out a copy to anyone who has sent me their information on DVD free of charge for all the help in getting this on the air. This can then be sent to their local news stations for more exposure. BMW USA saved millions by handling the sub frame issues case by case.
Why are some fixed free of charge and some are not? Why is it that BMW of Germany sent out a bulletin and fixes sub frames free of charge w/o question? With all the money BMW has saved by not fixing all BMWs with sub frame tears it wont kill them to compensate the ones that are willing to put the work into receiving at least a little compensation.
