    I bought what my sales agreement said was a new 2011 BMW Z4, but later found out my warranty had begun 16 months before I purchased the car. Now, after the claim submission date, I find out I should have been notified about the class action against BMW. I received no notification even though BMW has both my email address and mailing address. How many other new car owners involved in BMWs deception where never allowed to speak in this class action!!!!!!
