BIG disappointment Brand New 523i

Recently I purchased a brand new 2011 523i executive from BMW Dealership, in Jakarta, Imported direct from Germany

And not even a month old, I straightly shocked by the problem showing up in the car. Considering its a brand new car, the electrical/computer system problems (you can see some of them in the picture Im attaching)


These problems occur when I was driving and for me it wasnt safe at all. Since I wasnt able to change gear in that situation, (the computer wasnt able to recognize that I was pressing the brake to change gear) It was dangerous!

Therefore I'm extremely unsatisfied and disappointed with the quality of this brand new 523i executive that isnt working as a brand new BMW STANDARD Quality.

Model info : Sophisto Grey 523i executive 2011, not even a month old

Any Idea whats going on here??

Im requesting BMW to replace me quickly with a new one. (is that to much to ask) considering its a factory defect, and what other problems will occur in long term??

Usually if a bunch of systems go out quickly like that you have an electrical problem. Something isn't hooked up right; take it to BMW they will offer to fix it but probably not to replace the car.

Sorry that you have had these problems. The new F10 is a great drive!

These things happen sometimes. Take it to the dealer -- they'll fix it no questions asked.
