Z3 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 68,000 miles
The seam on the gas tank of my BMW Z3 has a defect. It has only 86,000 miles on it, has never been in a salt or corrosive environment, and has always been garaged. It has apparently been leaking gas for quite a while. With the low flashpoint of gas and the propensity for injury if the car was in an accident I am outraged. I want to pursue this to the fullest extent.
