It's not that BMWs don't have blinkers that work, it's just that most BMW owners selected the AutoBlink option.
For just $895 AutoBlink scans brianwave energy and anticipates every turning manouvre for them and they never have to touch the blinker stalk again. Used BMWs can be retrofitted with AutoBlink too, over the internet with a credit card payment, no matter how old.
Very popular option in this country also.
Some customers report problems, which usually results in changing the full set of blinker bulbs ( imagine what they get charged for that?) , and when this has been done repeatedly, this ends up with complaints to consumer affairs about short bulb life, but this is rare, as most drivers just don't notice.
