BMW claims they dont have any recalls or faulty parts (Then why did my car catch on fire!).

And to make matters worse the insurance company will not pay for any damage because "A FLAME WAS NOT VISIBLE". What a bunch of crap this is.

Anyone with any knowledge please give me a shout at beemer540ia AT yahoo...

Thank you,
when was the flame not visible??? during or after the fire???

dude, your insurance is bending you over. mule kick and see how they like it.

It takes a lot of work to be lazy.
