TJ, hang in there regardless of any delays. You'll soon walk away with a big fat check!

I was T-boned in the 6 month of ownership in my 2003 BMW 745Li and after that the car literally drove sideways. The steering wheel was way off center (about 60 degrees!) and the DSC warning light came on (had to turn it off to drive it) and the tires didn't wear (nearly) evenly. The mechanics tried everything (chassis bending, steering rack repair, new wheel speed sensors) but never figured out the problem. I feel sorry for the guy who bought that problem child after it came off of lease.

Every other manufacturer should give up on building their own cars and just make M3s instead.- Car and Driver
After the embarrassing performance of the 5- and 7- series... all future BMW vehicles should be built and developed by the M division-Jorge Gonzalez.

I was well aware of the 9/19 court date because I've read every post, but I had the exact same question on my mind that Bimmersrus asked. Since we haven't heard from Tommy since May it is highly likely that the date has changed, as is routine in litigation. I'd be surprised if it hasn't been settled already.

You out there, OP? 850,000 people are still waiting for closure.

As of right now the lawsuit is still scheduled for the 19th. Autobahn is trying to delay this date. I will have a final answer on what is going to take place on Thursday.

Thank you everyone for staying interested. I appreciate your support.

Tommy, Thank You for the latest news. Sorry the Autobahn lawyers are playing this delay game again, did your attorney file a memorandum in opposition? What is their latest tactic for a delay? I understand if you cannot respond to my questions. We look forward to all your future updates.

It's hard to believe it's been that long since this first started. Hopefully there is a quick and just resolution to this situation.
