Current (crappy) situation.

Basically there has been water ingress into the DME.  The reason behind this is unknown, the garage that serviced it aren't taking responsibility, the insurance company does not want to know, and I have a 3.5K bill to think about.

The BMW garage holding my car are now sending a report to BMW Germany to see if the repairs can be made through the reasons of a manufacturers defect.  Really p'd off, don't know how the hell the DME could have gotten water into it.  Not happy at all.

Its very common issue, bmw will not admit its bad design, why would they? They did so many f..k ups in Chris Bangle era You will never believe it .Water in dme bay...had lots off e90's , e87's. Nothing to do with indy garage. Most off ecu's can be saved, repaired, some cant . No tools to extract isn code. Good to know they will pay 50% but i will force them to pay 100%.
