BMW 3 SERIES Electrical System problems : 2.
Recently My Rear Taillights Were Noticeably Darker And Less Responsive. Taking My bmw To My Authorized bmw Dealership/service Center, Resulted In A Diagnosis That The Rear Wire Harness Needed To Be Replaced At A Cost Of ~$300. Following The Visit To The Dealership/service Center, Resulted In The Rear Light Failing Completely. Researching This Incident Online Produced Many Similar Problems W/other 330i Models And I Also Discovered That Nhtsa Had Issued A Recall Of bmw 3-series From My 02-06. My bmw Is A 01. It Is Apparent, From The Many Postings On bmw Boards And Websites, That This Defect Also Occurs In Older bmws Of The Same E46 Series Earlier Than Model Yr 2002. I Ask That Nhtsa Extend The Previous Recall To Earlier Model Years Of The E46 Series Of bmws. *tr
