He's a terrible landlord, though, let's people slide for more than 12 mos. on rent. Is he getting taken advantage of? You bet. But it makes him feel good.
what an inspiration

Why not just go to a another BMW dealer have it repaired first, then bitch.

BMW dealers are notorious for bad service people, here in Chicago we have 13 dealers, maybe 3 are decent. Just remember, dealers are basically run by people that didnt finish high school...

The way I see it, you guys all backed and supported me on this. The least I owe you for your time is a proper and unbiased follow up.

I'm on here for the same reason everyone else is - to share information.. and when this situation concludes, that's exactly what I'm gonna do.

Wow. Reading this thread makes me appreciate my dealership so much more. I've had nothing but horrible problems with my 335i and they've been accommodating every single time. I think I must have taken my car in 11 times for problems including 3x for the HPFP and they were proactive in helping me and never once refusing a repair. It's no wonder they are rated so highly and I just happened to go to them bc their price was the most competitive.

Anyway, good luck with your issue. I know the feeling. I had the steering go out on my G35S once while going about 85mph. That was unbelievable scary. When I brought it up to the Infiniti dealership, they said it was not a replicable problem so they couldn't help me.

i agree with doggie. I had some minor hiccups with my 330 initially and my dealer (Murray BMW in Denver) was awesome. The SA and lead tech are terrific guys. Makes you appreciate a good dealership when you find one. If i buy another BMW, i'll definitely go to them.

I've had great service from my service adviser and dealership (Tom Murtha at Sonnen BMW in San Rafael, north of San Francisco). It's been almost 4 years.

Nothing wrong ever happened to other windows before I replaced the winshield, and I even let the local shop double checked my sunroof and door side windows, there shouldnt be anything wrong, so i guess the dealer was just trying to denied what they have not done properly with the winshield which perhaps caused the water leaked in my car ..
Those guys are hard to deal with. Put the scanner on the car before going over. They have gotten better but I would only give them warranty work.

Sorry about your experience there .. that truly does suck .. but I have had nothing but a positive experience there ... that is just so odd. My service adviser is awesome.

BMWNA has promised to get back with me by the first week of January. I've made them 100% aware that I'm signing nothing to keep my mouth shut so regardless, you guys will know 100% of the outcome here.

Until then, still waiting...
OP... many on here are following what happens to you very closely. Thats why we ping you now and then. Hats off to you for taking a stand... and look forward to your next update.

Good read!!! Hope everything works out for you, glad to see your not backing down. I guess i am lucky my dealer worked with me and BMWNA to cover problems with my car outside of CPO I only have good things to say about them.
