    BMWNA paid for my pixel repair parts!!!!!

    I just bought my 00 540i with 116k miles and some pixels were gonners.
    I called BMWNA and asked them specifically to replace the part and to pay for it. I also told them that this was my 5th beemer. I think they liked the loyalty.....?

    I should have asked them for a hat too!!!!!Houston, TX

    Who did you call at what number?

    My 2002 touring has dying pixels as well. I'm fed up with it.

    Re: Who did you call at what number?

    Wow thats great. I bought my used 540 with some dead pixels. I didn't even bother calling because I thought they would tell me to pound sand since I bought it second hand. Maybe I should give it a shot.

    They would only split the cost of a new display

    and I had to pay for the labor, since I wasn't the original owner.

    I was not the original owner either.............

    In fact, I bought it at 116k and took it in at 117k. I did mention to them that I've owned 5 BMWs previously though.

    I also received a coupon for 20% off labor and I will use that too.

    Maybe they liked my Marine Corps license plates since they asked for my registration and I took it upon myself to send a picture too!!!!!Houston, TX

    Can you help me?

    My pixels are dying too! Like others, didn't think they'd do anything since I'm not original owner. But i'm not agressive and wouldnt know what to tell them. Can you help me out here? I don't want to be a pushover...

    Re: Can you help me?

    Oh well, don't be shy. Pick up the phone and call BMWNA Customer Service headquarters at 800-831-1117. Explain them about your dying pixels and that you heard about a goodwill program covering the dying pixel complaint. Tell them that you would like to be eligible for that goodwill program.

    I went that way as second owner and ended paying only 1/2 hour labor rate at the local dealer while BMW paid the rest.

    I was not the original owner either.......but I

    did tell them that I've owned 5 BMWs and that this one was the only car with such poor desing from the factory.

    Do not be pushy, since the decision is ultimately up to the person that is helping you.

    Good luck and keep us posted.
