    Driver's Door Wiring

    When my driver's door wiring started to break apart, the first problem I noticed was that my doors wouldn't lock with the remote.

    How Fans Forced BMW To Fix This Faulty Fuel Pump

    My sincerest apologies! I do enjoy some good sarcasm, so please carry on- Since I ditched my own MKV I'm a bit out of touch with the TDIClub...:o

    How Fans Forced BMW To Fix This Faulty Fuel Pump

    Is this sarcasm? If "Customer Oriented" means a strategy centered around blaming the customer then I would agree. How many people have posted about "bad fuel...fragged hpfp...won't honor warranty..."? No auto manufacturer is perfect, but I've never had a bad experience with BMW. My local VW...
