6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Mein Auto: BMW 6 Convertable 2011
BMW 6 conv. warning lights

I bought a new BMW 6 Convertible 2011 in THAILAND on the grey market (NOT from Official BMW dealer).

From the first day when I started the car 4 warning lights were burning.
---Restraint system
---Pedestrian protection system
---Steering drive moderately
---Parking brake only partially available

The power steering works half and several other things don't work also. (Like cameras, soft top roof etc.)

After a few minutes, now much longer until 4 hours, the lights disappear and the car drives perfect.

I don't have it every day but it seems that with rainy days the problem is worse.

Now about 9 month later, and several checks at a high class garage (BMW dealers don't service cars bought from grey market), the problem still exist.

Anybody have an idea, it makes me crazy?

Thanks, hope you can help me.

By the way, is there an official BMW forum (from the factory) where I can ask my question?
