Did anybody see Watchdog on BBC TV last night? seems like BMW are getting a 'wheel' hammering over particular alloys (fitted with low profile tyres) cracking, seems as they are blaming drivers, potholes, and anybody else, one guy had spent several thousands of £'s on replacements:confused:

It doesn’t surprise me, no one takes any responsibility for anything nowadays, and they have a glib answer for everything.

I've saw pot hole damaged alloys before, usually where they hit the pothole they have a flat spot on the rim, those wheels all looked perfectly round but had cracks in them. Very suspicious.

It is the same as MB when someone say my rad is leaking glycol into the box,and MB turn round and say it has never happened before, and lets be honest they have said this

I didn't see it but apparently BMW say it only happens in the UK.

Funny that the US forums are littered with the same complaint!
