    Funny really as not many other Car manufacturers would putt his type of fault to task.

    It would just be left to the customer to deal with.

    Absolutely. Now they just need to accept responsibility for the engine defects that affect the M271 M272 M273 M156 M651 etc etc

    And the known issues with airmatic front struts & water leaking into car with the w220. There is a class action lawsuit for the water leaking issue in the USA, but nothing here in UK. :wallbash:
