They have issued a recall for all affected vehicles. Not before time.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

A red triangle on the road would probably have prevented this accident. :-\

BMW's always used to come with one (all four of mine have) - unless they've stopped that on new (this decade) models?

You expect the driver of a broken down BMW to get out, open the boot, unfold the triangle and place it a sensible distance behind the car? For their own and eveybody else's safety?
On that day, the devil will have skated to work.

Yeah, common sense is an optional extra, like the indicators and the "being let out of junctions" kit. ;)

Still fitted to current models.  :y

Good to know  :y I quite fancy a 24hr test drive (since they keep plugging that on the radio) of a new generation BMW.. I mean, it couldn't be any more likely to break down than my decade old one, surely ;D

They offered me one.

I'm tempted by the new 600 BHP M5............24 hour test drive was for an electric sewing machine called an I3.

No thanks. :-\

Bloke I used to work with had an M135i and then went to the F10 generation M5, beautiful piece of kit, sounded just lovely! He used to do 20k/yr in it, rain shine or snow! Proper petrolhead.
