X-series cars tracking

BMW Warranty

I recall a sticker on the windshield of my then (2006) brand new E60. It basically said: "If you use a non-approved cell phone inside the car, its warranty is voided." Hell of a mindset, BMW....

Here in SoCal there at least a handful sitting on dealer's lots. And, yes that is a surprising small number. Let us know if another dealer in your area confirms there is a delay in production. Thanks.
