The Backlighting For The Tachometer And Speedometer Becomes Completely Unreadable Under Soft Daylight Situations. An Example Of This Would Be Driving Through A Wooded Area In Full Daylight. It Appears That This Issue Is Created Be Two Issues. First, The Color Of The Background And Lettering On The Gauges Themselves Do Not Create Enough Contrasting. Second, The Ambient Light Sensor Does Not Appear To Pick Up When This Situation Is Happening And Engage The Backlighting For The Console. This Issue Makes It Very Hard, Or Impossible, To Determine Speed At A Quick Glance And Could Require More Time Looking At The Gauges Than Usual, Distracting From Watching The Road.

Backlighting On Instrument Cluster Gauges Does Not Meet Sufficient Contrast Requirements. It’s Even Worse When Driving Through Shaded Areas. Tachometer And Speedometer Appear Completely Dark And Unreadable. This Could Be An Accessibility Issue Where Certain Drivers Could Have Difficulty Reading The Gauge Dials Due To Improper Contrast. *tr

Please Look At The Attached Pic. The Speedometer/gauges Cluster Looks Dark In Garage, Tunnels, Cloudy Conditions, Under Tree Cover. There Is No Illumination During The Daytime. You Can’t Even Read The Speedometer Or Rpms At A Glance Which Is A Safety Hazard. I Almost Crashed Multiple Times Trying To Read The Speedometer And Fuel Gauges. The Console Light Wheel Knob Is Already Turned All The Way Up. I Checked All The Options Already And There Is Nothing There To Control The Gauges Cluster Illumination. I Have Contacted bmw Numerous Times And They Have Ignored All Of My Inquiries. This Is Really Disappointing From bmw. A 60k Car Shouldn’t Have This Problem. When Driving Through A Garage Or Tree Cover Or Cloudy Conditions You Can’t Read The Speed You’re Going. This Is A Major Safety Hazard. There Are Posts Regarding This On Official bmw Forums. Please Have bmw Perform Recalls Or Fix This.

Both Headlight Lenses Are Cracking And Pitted On The Inside Of The Lenses. Vehicle Is Under Warranty And Has Been At The Dealer On Two Separate Occasions. The 2nd Time At The Dealer They Had A Regional Tech Manager Check The Headlights.the Conclusion He Came To Is That The Pitting And Cracking Is On The Outside And Therefore Not A Defect. Well, A Child Could See And Tell, Even By Touching The Face Of The Headlights That This Is On The Inside Of The Plastic Headlamp Assemblies. I Believe This Is A Serious Safety Issue At Night, As Well As A Clear Materials Defect. I Believe That bmw Does Know That They Are Defective, And Simply Doesn’t Want To Pay For The Headlights. They Said I Could Replace Them Myself If I Wanted To At A Cost Of $5000.00.

The Car Has Instruments (speedometer And Tach) With Low Contrast Between The Background And Lettering. The Instruments Are Highly Visible When The Instrument Lighting Is Enabled, But Are Nearly Invisible When The Lighting Is Off. There Is An Ambient Light Sensor That Turns The Instrument Lighting On And Off As You Drive In Mixed Sun And Shade, So As You Drive From A Shaded Area To A Sun-lit Area, The Instruments Alternate Between Visible And Invisible. It Is Disconcerting And Dangerous To Suddenly Lose Instrument Visibility As You Drive. There Is No Way To Switch The Instrument Lights On At All Times, Even If The Headlights Are Switched On.

I Was Driving My 2015 x5 (bought It New In March And The Car Only Has 2599 Miles Right When The Malfunction Happened On Aug 8th 2015) To A Local Trader Joe’s After Getting Off From Highway 101 When Suddenly Everything On The Car Failed. I Was In The Middle Of A Left Turn And Almost Ran Into The Car Next To Me Which Also Was Turning Left When The Steering Wheel Became So Stiff That I Can Hardly Turn It. At The Same Time, The Airbag Malfunction Light Is On And The Safety Belt Restraint System Failed. The Safety Belt Became So Loose That It Didn’t Even Hold/restrain Me During The Turn. The Speed Meter Also Failed And It Showed 0 And Even Though When I Was Driving. Other Failures Include Headlight And Turning Light. The Right Turning Would Always Turn Itself On No Matter What. I Was Able To Park My Car In A Safe Location But This Really Scared The Sh*t Out Of Me. When I Pressed The Brake And The Stop Engine Button, The Car Didn’t Even Shut Down The Engine. Other Failures Include Tpm Malfunction, Parking Brake Reduced, Parking Assistant Malfunction And Headlamp Vertical Aim Control Malfunction. It’s Been An Hour Since I Called For A Towing Car And I’m Waiting Anxiously For It While My Car Has Its Engine On The Whole Time. I Own A 2011 X3 And Never Had Any Problem With It. I Bought This x5 In March And It Only Has 2599 Miles On It. I Can’t Imagine What Would Happen If Everything Failed Just When I Was Driving On The 101 Highway Which Is About 3 Minutes Before All Of These Happened. Does Anyone Know What I Can Do? I Don’t Know If I Can Trust This Car Any More Even If After They Fix It. This Is So Dangerous And Could Be A Disaster If It Happened On The Highway.

The Tail Light On My Motorcycle Is Failing On A Recurring Basis. At My 6000 Mile Service I Pointed Out That It Appeared To Have Dust Getting Into The Interior Of The Light. Upon Examination By The Technician They Determined The Reflector Had Detached From The Housing And Was Chafing Against The Other Parts, Creating A Plastic Dust That Was Sticking To The Reflector And Interior Of The Lens. A Replacement Was Provided And Installed. At Around 9,900 Miles The Same Issue Had Reappeared On The New Tail Light. bmw Supplied Another Tail Light Which Has Now Been Installed. This Is The Third Tail Light Installed. The Plastic Dust Diminishes The Light Transmission Through The Clear Lens And The Unit Is Not Able To Be Disassembled For Cleaning. This Poses A Safety Issue For Myself And Any Vehicles Following Me. The Pictures Provided Are Of The Original (first) Tail Light And The Second One Provided As Replacement When New Before Installation. Original Tail Light Has A Date Code Of 29.9.14 (sept. 29, 2014) Second Tail Light Has A Date Code Of: 12.06.15 (june 6, 2015) Part Number Appears To Be Different. 717.01.000.00 (old), 717.02.000.00 (new). I Do Not Have This Data For The Newest (third) Light Assembly But It Is Identical In Appearance To The Second. As You Can See The Design Of The Second Is Slightly Different Compared To The First. There Are Red Plastic Pieces Added To The Interior. The Rest Appears To Be Exactly The Same.

Visibility Is Poor With The Halogen Headlights. Very Frequently I Do Not See People Or Animals In The Road Until I Am Very Close To Them.

Stock Charging System Failed At Only 47,000 Miles. Replaced With Aftermarket Parts Due To Cost. bmw Says You Must Replace Stator And Rotor, When Only The Stator Has Failed. The New Stator Failed Within 6,000 Miles. Replaced Again, And Again. They Fail Roughly Every 8,000 Miles. The Issue Was Resolved With 2013 And Newer Models, But The Old Bikes Are Still Failing At An Alarming Rate. With No Help From bmw, These Are Still A Major Issue. When The Battery Becomes Low, The Abs Pump Stops Working First, Then The Lights, Then The Fuel Injection System With The Motor Shutting Off. Has Left Me Stranded On Multiple Occasions. I Was Stationed In Guam With First Failure. Not Easy Getting A Tow Across A Small Island With No Access To A bmw Dealership. The Remaining Failures Have All Been Back Stateside. The Most Recent Failure Left Me Stranded Two Miles From Home While Coming Home Late One Night. While Riding, My Abs Indicator Flashed, Letting Me Know That I Have A Low Battery. Then The Light Went Solid, Indicating Abs Pump Failure Due To Low Voltage. Then My Lcd Dash And Tachometer Went Out. Then My Headlight, Running, And Brake Lights Turned Off, At Night, On A 4 Lane Inner City Road. Not Even My Hazard Lights Worked. Then The Bikes Fuel Injection System Failed And Stalled. I Coasted To A Right Turn Lane Safely And Proceeded To Push The Motorcycle The Remaining Two Miles. Upon Disassembly Of My Stator, It Was Severely Burnt To Due A Lack Of Oil Cooling On The Right Side Of The Motor. I Know bmw Makes Many Motorcycles With The Same F800 Series Engines. They Are A Common Problem Apparently And Also Very Expensive To Fix. As The Battery And Charging System Is Crucial To Most Motorcycles, This Is Certainly A Safety Risk And Should Be Addressed As So.
