My Ride: 325xi
04 325xi just burned out

04 325xi with 60,000 miles
Noticed a flickering drivers side brake light, and trunk light.
Removed the drivers side rear light assembly and found the brown wire burned and melted exposing about 1/4" of copper wire. The socket has a nice round hole melted in it, and the spade terminal on the light housing completely corroded (melted) off.
Calling the dealer tomorrow, but will probably end up fixing it myself.
I'm pretty sure my extended warranty has ran out.
