The auto show season is just about to kick off and it looks as though BMW is ready for the new season with a host of planned reveals. According to a new report, BMW plans to show no less than five new and concept vehicles at the next two shows.

BMWs parade of debuts will start at Octobers Paris Motor Show. According to Edmunds, BMW will reveal the lightly freshened 3-series, as well as the all-new 7-series. In addition, look for BMW to also show an ActiveHybrid version of its new 7-series in Paris.

It is also believed that the German automaker will unveil a concept version of its X1 SUV at the Paris show. Although the car will technically be labeled a concept, we expect it to be a clearly hint at what the production model will look like.

Once the show season moves back to the U.S., specifically sunny California, BMW will unveil its latest drop top. According to Edmunds, BMW is planning to unveil its all new Z4 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

In another bit of BMW news, it is being reported that BMW will offer its news seven-speed dual-clutch transmission on its U.S.-spec 335i and 335d models.

Yes I just found this at NHTSA for recalls

I am not great with attachments for some reason here bUt there will be two if I get it right
Ok the second one did not come thru, but it was the short part of this letter. This was updated to the NHTSA on 09/14/2009.
This is whats going on. This is really dangerous. No wonder BMW is the only one that offers 4 year/50,0000 on all cars. That might explain why the premium Z4 2009 stereo so some have said is not that great. Would draw to much power. Hope this helps.

i don't want to hurt your feelings but here is what i would do. either fix everything practical to do or sell as is with honest disclosure and fair price. the 7 series of 2002 is on consumers guide list of cars to avoid due to chronic unreliability. this is now the clue for 7 series owners to chime in, that their 7's are the bestest cars ever done. consumers guide has no dogs in the fight and they do recommend many models and year BMW's. Their facts are based upon tried and true research of owners...save yourself the future expensive grief...
