when I am in SK, they don't even give out cars
this is BMW dealership I am talking about.
If they charge $25 per visit, I hope they become rich ffs
in another side, once I get m3 I am not buying bmw anymore.

Even if you bought the car from them? That's just a rip off!

That's funny. When I went for service in Buffalo I got a courtesy vehicle free.

Got a black X1 loaner with 1700kms on it.

Yes. I was told this about a month ago also. We are still lucky here because other places don't even offer loaners or they charge way more. But I think there will be a double standard and some 'exceptional' customers won't be charged the fee.

Brian Jessel BMW called me about a recall yesterday (battery cable or something silly like that). Scheduled me in for mid-week in September (apparently they "don't do recalls on Fridays or Saturdays"), and gave me a free curtesy car, but did offer a $25 upgrade to a BMW. I passed.

can't say the same for me.

have had a black x1 loaner for two days now from BMW TO. No charge and they even told me to not worry about fuel. I will still bring it back with same amount tho.

I bought my car from them and am having CPO work done. Not sure If that changes anything.

This is really a good sign to introduce your car and it would be making the people more aware about that.
