Exclamation Radio - mid display failure

Hello Everone -

Like many of you, my MID/Radio display is broken. The pixel are being lost on a daily basis and it has become unreadable. This is totally unacceptable to me regardless that it is out of warranty. Radio displays should last the life of the car. The flaw is in the cable that attaches to the radio inside. BMW knows this is a problem, but refuses to fix it as it occurs outside of 4 years, becuase of the movement in the car. It is NOT wear, it is poor design from the start. There are endless complaints by BMW owners about this on all the forums.

Goal is to collect enough contact information to turn over to an attorney for a class action lawsuit to have our radio's fixed. We shouldn't have to pay and the radio should last!!!

Please sign up. If we can get 1000 owners, I can get an attorney to take the case ($1,000,000 worth of recall).

BMWNA has done a goodwill "recall" for some people based on age, mileage, # of owners, etc. Trust me, you're not shedding light on something everyone hasn't experienced at one point or's an ongoing issue on other LED based cars as well...Audi, VW, etc.
