well bmw has discoverd that the dotted matrix on the radio and heatin displays and trip comps. are faulty. so if u email BMW and tell her the name on the registration, last 7 of the vin, address, and phone number where she can reach u at and u should have ur self free parts on these items. the email address is below.

Leonora.Vlaovich@bmwna.com
and yes this applies to car with warranties expired to.
i found this out on another forum and it is great that bmw is understanding


i dunno about BMWCA but i know that BMWNA has actually honoured this so this may be usefull for you guys and gals

do they just send a display for the OBC or a whole new unit.
and do they want the old ones back? cause my car is missing the OBC... and then i would have to get one just to send back... not that I want to scam bmw or anything like that...

Amazing, 40% of my OBC's pixles are dead and it's almost unreadable, bulb is out in my instrument cluster, and the ODO has a dead pixle or two. Fun.

I had my dash instrument panel replaced coz' the LED lights were messed up. Contacted same lady above, she emailed me and gave me a number to call a rep from BMWNA. Took my car to dealer to run test, confirmed fault and I paid labor $75.
My car was out of warranty. Would've cost over $400.
