FTL...

I have an '09. At first I thought the tools were "missing". Then I found out what the deal was. I bought the missing tools for about $7.50... some production cost savings for BMW.

Some A-hole bean counter at BMW things E9x drivers are too stupid to properly use a combination wrench ($5.50) or use the emergency sunroof tool ($1.98 and which came in very handy on my E39 when my sunroof f-ed up).

I'd like to retrofit the glovebox light. Anybody ever done a DIY on that?

Right but I don't agree that there is no reason to ever have the dealer do anything. If no one even bothered reporting their problems to the dealerships how will BMW learn there is a widespread problem that needs to be corrected and a recall issues where other BMW owners (yourself included) can benefit from a free fix? I understand issues reported to BMW dealers are not the car engineer's only source of information for determining defects but surely it is a large source of their information and determining statistics for how widespread the problem is? Imagine if no one ever reported their long cranks or limp mode experiences...

Not sure when this started but about a week ago, my car(2011 135i vert.) just stalled on me in the middle of the road. My dashboard lit up like a christmas tree. It threw all kinds of codes, passenger restraint, electrical system, tranny stuck in P, ABS, transmission, error, high battery discharge, daytime running light, and I think there were some other ones. The car just shut off and would only turn on for a split second, lucky I was able to get into neutral and push the car out of the street. Now my car has been at the dealer for a week. They are talking back and forth with BMW, whom wants the dealer to test all kinds of wires.

So BMW and Toyota are using-sharing multiple parts to cut costs.
BMW owners of newer recent models will be proud of knowing their BMW contains Toyota parts.

Back in 2010, I had a 2007 335i. In the middle of a turn, I had a bunch of warning lights on my dash, the car powered off, and I did crash. The car was totaled. At the time, I thought it was related to the HPFP or something, but now this seems like a more likely cause. Too late to sue, but I was injured.

If you thought it was related to the hpfp why didn't you sue based on that? And why is it too late? Did you have the dealer look at the car? Surely the police would have insisted if you told them your car turned off and caused you to crash

I should hope Canada is included since post#7 alluded to BMW being aware of a minor collision there as a result of this problem.

Is there any way to check or verify yourself if your car's positive terminal cable connector is on its way out?

I would say if you were injured that you probably should sue. If there is documentation that the car shut off while driving (stated by you in the police report), you should at least have a moderately good case at minimum.

Could they fix this now or do I have to wait...?
