Indicator stalk not working


Picked my M5 up last week and had the indignity of having to take it back to Motorline BMW in Brisbane yesterday to get the indicator stalk fixed.

The problem actually started the day I picked the car up - of course I didn't want to take it back to the dealer immediately and therefore waited until yesterday.

SYMPTOMS - what was it doing?

1. every time the headlights were turned on the highbeam remained on. This is not such a problem because I have the active high beam (or whatever it is called - it self dips) - but that's not the point. It should work. Also the flash would never work.
2. the indicators only worked every couple of times i started the car.
3. the OBC would not scroll through the various "screens"/functions.


Faulty stalk


Replace stalk by overnighting the part from Sydney


Free - ain't warranties grand?!
When I pick the car up I will however enquire what the cost would have been and let you all know.
