Has the reflector in your headlight suffered heat damage, melted and fogged the inside of the lens?

If so report the issue to Transport Canada here:

For related info see thread:

Please take a few minutes to try to right a wrong.

Done

I did it just now. Only took 10 min. Need your exact purchase date and VIN# handy. Also, give them the URL for your posts & pics on ADVRider. Everyone do this, and we'll surely get BMW's attention and, one hopes, some replacements coming our way. This is dangerous and unfair -- let us kick some BMW butt.

I hope that some of you with the issue took the time to file a report with Transport Canada.

Over $500 for a replacement headlight assembly.

I'll send this as soon as I get home...

I find it hard to believe that BMWNA hasn't issued a recall already. Seems like something they'd want to step up and fix.

Thanks for the link!
