More news. Commerce has now defined the problem as "A mechanical failure causing a short in the wiring started the damage". Commerce is not responsible for mechanical failure or craftsmanships.
Boy am I screwed!!! BMW claims they have seen this happen on several other vehicles and they make no guarantee that when fixed that it would not happen again.
I dont feel that well getting it fixed knowing it could catch fire again. Where is the QUALITY BMW??? Man, I am hard pressed to recommend a BMW at this point unless someone steps up to the plate and tells me they have a defect and will take care of it. Other than that I am considering trading it in for another vehicle, and not a BMW.
