Re: Shocking build quality

The issue here is that new cars are now becoming consumable items like TV's, phones and washing machines. They're built to last the 3 year warranty, if you're lucky, as BMW etc. don't want you to run a car for multiple years.

Re: M140i Shadow Instrument Cluster Failure

This is a known issue by BMW. There is a software update to address the problem.

BMW Halliwell Jones in Warrington have agreed to cover the costs in full for my issue as a Goodwill Gesture. No hassle from them whatsoever. Delighted. Awaiting parts.
Many thanks for the update and good service from your dealer. Mine goes in Monday so will see what they say.

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

It hasn’t changed since N55. So you're saying the N55 and the B58 use the exact same cooling system? So you're saying that, as BMW went from the N55 to the B58: - all the radiator components and designs are exactly the same on the B58 and the N55? That is, I can go on to realoem.com and find that t...

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

Received a reply from Richard Heath regarding having the guards retrofitted. He had this to say: A retrofit kit is available to order from a BMW Approved centre. The cost of this at retail should be £441.22 Inc. VAT, plus fitting. But this as a kit has been reduced to £350.00 Inc. VAT, plus fitting...

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

So next week I call into my local dealer, see the service agents, and say "can we make an appointment to retrofit Rock guards to my car please under warranty"!! Yes if you want your radiator protecting and don’t want to break down. New cars have them fitted and BMW would not have done a redesign if...

TRL has posted pictures of 2 new M140i’s being collected by new owners on Instagram. Both have rock guards fitted.

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

Have a look on TRL’s Instagram feed, he’s just had a 240 approved for retrofit under goodwill and Joe Achilles has a lot of damage to his radiator as well. Goodwill or warranty, who cares, as long as BMW admit there’s an issue and get it sorted. By refusing to accept responsibility they’re damaging ...

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

Well I've just been told that BMW are willing to pay parts yet I've got to pay the rest. ... £816... Ask them what the process is to reject the vehicle. It'll be far cheaper for them to fund the £816. How do you reject a car damaged by external sources? Whilst you may have a case that there is an i...

All - to update. 140 back from dealer, all fixed - new radiator (complete with rock guards), condenser and from grill. Completed as BMW goodwill (I was originally quoted circa £1,400 to fix as my problem). My dealer was very good and I gave them all info - realoem plans etc and this forum, honest J...
