I had the same issue. It is a design flaw. Was told by dealership to make insurance claim. I think that would be insurance fraud. In fact, I think every time every dealership has instructed an owner to do this it has been insurance fraud. Since they are being instructed to respond in this manner by BMW NA I think that BMW NA could be prosecuted under federal RICO statutes.

But what do I know?

I loved my car but already had the high pressure fuel pump issue. I was willing to see if they had fixed that for good after several attempts but then after I was told the same nonsense many of you have been told about the sunroof I threw the towel in and had them buy it back.

I can't imagine my ever buying or leasing another BMW. Ever. Clearly a design flaw. BMW NA's posture over this is reprehensible.

Good luck to those still dealing with it.
