Tail Light contest

I thought that I would start this because I know that there have been a lot of tail light issues but I am starting to think that mine are out of control. I have a 2008 E88 that I am the original owner of and Friday my dealer installed my 6th replacment light. At least my SA is really cool about it and has replaced yhe last two under a good will warranty as my factory warranty has expired.

Wow. I'm on top #3 and I thought I had it rough. Why do your tops keep breaking?

Taillight number 3. Its cracked but nothing to do since ive been out of warranty for nearly two years now.

First was for the hole issue which was resolved via the TSB. The next four were because of a constantly malfunctioning rear defroster which requires an entire top replacement.
