You might want to check your battery for this.

My wife's 325i wouldn't start one day, that morning it was giving a battery warning indicator. Anyway, I drove over to give her a jump, when I opened the battery compartment cover, the electronics connected to the positive terminal were severely melted / cracked. Car had 6000 miles on it. Dealer fixed it with an updated part, supposedly the first few (hundred?) cars that came off the line had this problem.

Lesson: Even the battery compartment cover was partially melted. You all may want to visually inspect your battery for early signs of trouble before you get stranded / burned alive, especially if you purchased your car early after release.
