I have recently bought a BMW 335d 56 plate. I have suffered badly with the issue of cracked alloy wheels due to the run flat tyres which BMW take no responsability for even though the newer wheel has a reinforced rim which proves something must have been wrong with the original design.
Anyhow after lots of welding and the car being off the road I have been forced into buying a new set of wheels at great cost to me.
My second issue is because I have a reasonably old I drive i cannot put post codes into it because when I got to city/postcode it will only let me put letters in and no numbers.
When I went to my dealer he claimed it was originally made for a 4 digit post code system. The uk has never used a letters only 4 digit post code system so I dont take this as a valid reason. I put it to them that if something is programmed wrong in the first place it is up to them to put this right. They said they will but it is going to cost me £240.
Surely with the problem ive had with my wheels out of good will they could simply plug my car in and update my iDrive?? as this wouldnt actually cost them a penny, not like im asking for a new set of wheels!!
Any thoughts or suggestions??
