E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 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.

As a result of my post, I was contacted by the BMW corporate office in the US and, to make a long story short, BMWs engineers and my insurance company are working together to come to an understanding of what exactly happened. I am in contact with an attorney and feel that I have all my ducks in a row. Mostly, I am grateful to hear that everyone involved in the accident seems to be doing well
I hope that within a week's time an evaluation is made by both BMW and insurance company, and hope that in the end, whatever the outcome, will benefit all of BMW drivers.
More to come….
Good path to take. We'll be waiting for your updates.

Wait - BMW pays attention to what we're discussing out here?

I can't say that they monitor the forum, but like most companies they listen if you know how to speak to them.

I had a car company replace a 2011 model with a 2012 model at no charge. I was reasonable, and professional. No lemon laws, no lawyers, to threats, just purely a business discussion.

In this case there is some potential manufacturing issue that from what I can tell, is a very unusual failure. It is in their best interest to investigate to confirm their liability is at a minimum.

This will be interesting to watch. I hope Brenda keeps up updated.
