BMW RUST BUCKET!!! Buyers be warned! Watch the video and be shocked... hashtag#bmwuk

Please like, comment and share please in hopes of a response. BMW 4 series convertible F33 LEAK!!! BMW are aware their cars had issues and repaired THOSE... This involved improving drainage free of charge under manufacturer three year warranty. However, those who own a car over three years old and now out of warranty have no choice other than paying astronomical dealership investigative costs! BMW should've issued a recall! I share this issue with the hope someone at hashtag#bmwuk sees this and can help press for a recall or dealer fix for this ever so common and potentially costly repair..

Thanks,

Kav

Just cost me £1000 to fix mine even though the dealer said they’d cleaned and done the fix in warranty 7 months ago 😡

Good Man! I also did the same yesterday, but agree the more we have the more likely we are to get a resolution.

All the best!

I recall I had a leaking sunroof once come to think of it and all I had to do was poke in some wire to push my dirt blocking a drainage pipe out.

OMG!!! What... what work was involved if it cost 1,000 pounds....
That’s only 50% labour I paid! BMW said they would pay 100%parts and 50%labour. I’ve put a complain letter in to the dealer now as when I got the car back the roof leaked to I’m in a courtesy at mo, all water damage from water blocked due to badly designed drainage

WTF they gave you your car back in that state with all that exposed??? 😱
Yes mate I wasn’t impressed,😡 leaking too, just a drop inside so it went back in last Monday for adjustments, got it back Wednesday, with video saying all fixed and Thursday after work I got in and it was leaking more with material soaking😡 so they have it back now and I’m in a courtesy car, for how long I don’t know but it’s shite driving it compared to mine😕 no heated steering wheel in cold too 🥶, I’ve sent a letter of complaint to the head of business at the dealer requesting my money back from drainage fault as they supposed to have fixed it March time, but they can’t seem to fix anything at that garage only make it worse🙄🤦🏻‍♂️
