E64 6 Series convertible top class action

I've got official information on BMW's settlement of the class action lawsuit for 2004 - 2010 6 Series convertible tops. The class action claims that BMW made and sold certain E64 6 Series Convertibles with defective tops. As of April 26th 2017 BMW has entered into a nation wide settlement with the plaintiffs.

BMW will offer the following benefits as part of the settlement
  • Free software update for the convertible top installed on vehicles in the class action when they are brought to an authorized dealership within one year of the effective date of the settlement.
  • If the convertible top fails or displays "top not locked" error within one year of the date of the software update the convertible top will be repaired free of charged.
  • Reimbursement for out of pocket expenses for eligible repairs/replacement of the convertible top incurred subject to the following limitations:
    • Convertible Top Repair - Reimbursement for the cost of up to two eligible repair attempts prior to the effective date of the settlement.
    • Convertible Top Replacement - Reimbursement for the cost of one eligible replacement of the convertible top from a convertible top failure

These benefits will only be available after the effective date of the settlement. Class action members will receive written notice of the settlement via US mail in April 2017.

The final hearing for the case is schedule on or about July 20th 2017. The effective date of the settlement will be 30 days after the final hearing if the court grands final approval and their are no appeals.
