This settlement was/is pure garbage! If the subframe is 'known' to be defective, BMWNA should have been responsible for:
1) Reimbursing owners for ALL sub-frame repair costs previously incurred by the owner at the time
2) Repairing ALL sub-frames that are presently damaged and providing reinforcement to prevent recurrence
3) Providing reinforcement to ALL sub-frames yet to be damaged
For those of us with no existing damage, what is our recourse for damage that occurs after 2010? THERE ISN'T ANY!!!!! BY the time I found out about the class action, the date for dropping out of the class had already passed (7/15/09). While BMWNA may protest, they are privately breathing a sigh of relief for having dodged a bullet!
