I did RIGHT thing today

I left deposit for HONDA Accord 2.2 CDTI, basicly traded my car in for Honda
I test drove Honda Accord 2.2 CDTI estate and absoulitly loved it. Car is 2007 registered, has got all options, leather interior, sat nav, bluetooth, tinted windows, cd changer etc.
I dont know why i did this.

kinder got pissed off with BMW, my car booked in for evaporators job on monday, which i dont want pay for. Why on earth evaporators should fail on 4 years old car, and owner must pay fortune for this cock up!
I been told i will drop my car off on Monday, dealer will remove dashboard to get acces to evaporators, after they will apply for good will, which they dont know how much BMW will pay towards, rest i have to pay or might be even full bill on collection Thursday 1500+.
Ok, if i had something like DTC failure I would not to be so pissed off.
Come on evaporators failed on 4 years old car, and failed not on Ford or Daewoo but on BMW, and you told that you got to pay for itb

yes you have....... i came from a Honda Accord to a BMW, I think you have done the wrong thing mate...sorry.

I bought mine in 2005, had paint redone as it was peeling on the inside of the doors, tyres wear on the rear end unless you get your tracking done frequently, service is every 12500 miles with each 25k being a major, 330+ for this one). Plus they go through brakes like no ones business. Interior plastics/materials, just not good at all. They also replaced my dash under warranty due to the amount of rattles it was producing and they damged it trying to resolve my complaints in the first palce. Out of all the cars I have had, this one was the biggest let down and it wasnt cheap.

If you were looking for another brand, an estate and a diesel you would have worse by going to but a new Octavia vRS TDI CR estate. I think much better than the Honda.

This is a known issue for BMW - I would be very surprised if they didn't do a good deal on the repair for you. Probably you pay for the parts, they pay for the labour.

good deal?
i would call good deal, if all done for free under warranty, supplied courtesy car and apology for inconvenience caused.

and what scares me more, that they will not put dash right back together, so probably will be more trips to dealer afterwards

Phoned dealer and rejected Honda.
Lost my deposit but dealer told me that they will keep my deposit on file and i can use it to buy my next car. Just hope they not go bust.

My e90 goes to dealer tomorrow, i really hope all will be good.
