If he did damage like that...then sue for repair costs...is what I would do...with any place.

If the guy was legit. He should have stepped up and said something. He even dirtied my car enough to try to hide it. What a Professional, now I know why he's had to change his company name a few times.

Damn sorry to hear that. I had the opposite experience there. Are we sure we're talking about the same place? I don't know of him changing anything...

Yeah, same guy. I can show you the receipt. I take it as a learning experience and am passing it on. Good and bad.

Good news! Got an email that my car is already available for pickup in Dallas! Going to pick it up on the 31st. Wish I was flying into San Antonio the 27th and not the 28th or I would have been able to go pick it up then....

Welcome back, soldier! I'm ex-Army myself, and I live in Boerne, just to the NW of SA. The Cars and Coffee and similar events here bring out lots of BMWs; we also have an active BMWCCA chapter centered in Austin but with lots of members down this way.

Did you have to get your car in Dallas as well? I know google says close to 5 hours to get there... but will I get there quicker than that? Not looking forward to a 10 hour driving day... lol

Personally I think the best way is to take greyhound cause then once you get to the last place its like a 15 min taxi ride and I can give you the taxi number that specifically does the drives for people like us. I think all together you spend like $35 and then the army will pay back $350. Or mega bus is also cheap but I dont know where they stop.

I will have a rental car, so I was going to see if it would be possible to return it somewhere up there... maybe the Dallas airport or something... but the bus is a possibility as well..

I mean if you already have it then you should be good. I know how the army doesnt like paying back rental cars though. Either way though good luck man and if you need any help with anything shoot me a PM.
