Looks like BMW might be covering your repairs!

Great news - but I am a little interested in how "receive up to a $1,500 reimbursement for prior repairs" will actually play out. Now if they'd just reimburse all the people that had their hatch wiring redone....

Is there any sign that BMW may cover a precautionary move of the electronics? Preferably I'd like to have everything moved safely before something goes horribly wrong.

You can do that yourself with 15 minutes of time and two ZIP ties.

Red face Recently Covered

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just took my 2007 E61 with 120,000 miles in for a PCV Heater Valve recall and asked the dealer to look at the leak in my rear right pillar. They told me there was $140 diagnostic fee.

Three days later they called me up and told me the leak was repaired for free. They did not even charge for the diagnostics. I'm thrilled they covered such an old car with those kind of miles on it.

Additionally, I found they moved all of the electronics out of the wheel well and up into the rear left compartment.

Now I can sleep easy when it is raining hard and I don't have to open my trunk to pour water out of the compartment every few days.
