Took my 335 in for sercvice and got a ...

Took the e92 in for an oil change and to have my HPFP checked out this morning at 7am.. Kinda nervous. ALso told them NOT to wash the car. But I'm thinking they will.
On the bright side....

Got an 08 sapphire black e90 335 SP PP as my loaner

I noticed that all the BMW loaners are gone by 7am.. the rest were Camry's. So happy I got the last BMW they had on the list to loan

Seems like this is quite common. I noticed the same at my dealership but when all the bimmer loaners are gone, you wouldn't get a Camry at the dealership I go to; you'd end up in a PT Cruiser from the little Enterprise counter inside the dealership.

Just be happy you get something. The dealer I got my car from "McKenna" is just crap. NO LOANER/rental even for scheduled maintence.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

When i first started going in for service I only got camrys.. after a bit of flirting with the females they started giving me good loaners. I called in once before to check if they had any BMW loaners avail, and they said they were out, but 5 mins later, i arrived and talked to them and they got me one.

How about doing your own oil change and avoiding the dealer altogether. Then you know they didn't screw it up, you learn about your car, and you don't have to worry about them dealer-installed swirl marks from their shitty car wash.

This would only make sense if you're out of warranty.
