Hmmm..nope... IMHO Alex does not strike me as being dismissive, regardless of the reason to call/email.
I respect your patience,

Did they really do an oil/filter change OR it was a mistake and you got it done free?
As far as I know, Elite's charge for an oil/filter change is $138.00.
(1) 11-42-7-566-327 - Oil Filter-$10.00
(7) 92-33-2-201-500 - 5W30 Synt Bulk - 54.11
Waste Disposal - $6.00
Labor - $67.89
BTW I have my own opinion about the two dealers, but that is for another thread.
Cheers
Don't have the bill in front of me, but if memory serves me it breaks down exactly as you have above, except the 5W30 Synt Bulk was $7.xx I think. The multiplier in front of it was only 1, not 7. The oil meter reads full, so all the oil is in there, so it appears the entry of 1 vs 7 got me my discount.

I think Speedy is the better choice there. Pay a special attention on how the rain sensor and your rear view mirror line up post installation.

Typical dealers.....they will always get back at the repeat customers later.
Be very cautious on your next visit.

Hmmm ... you are correct as the 7 is as follows:
7 quarts x $7.73 = $54.11
So if you are showing full, then my question is...did they put in only 1 quart?
It is your call, and I hope you got a freebie
Cheers

I don't follow Clairvoyant. Usually the windscreen is produced with the mounting for the mirror (and rain sensor) already installed. So Speedy or whom ever just has to attach to the new mounting point.

Is this not the case for the E9x?

Yes, you are absolutely correct.
The OEM windshield replacements come with the mounting for the mirror and rain sensor already installed. FYI: the OEM has that BMW roundel symbol somewhere on the lower left corner.
However, if they provide you with aftermarket windshield replacements, pay a special attention on the "line up".

Cool

Borrow an oil filter wrench from Crappy Tires ($6.99).

Use a thick cloth on the oil filter cap and unscrew it slowly with the oil filter wrench.

My car arrived at the dealer today!
No service department, but things are looking good for a Monday pick up.
I have a key still from my ED so I've been sitting in my car today.

Fresh off the truck - crappy iPhone picture


I'm hoping that Laser99's car arrived at Otto's today too. I might see if I can sneak out of the house tomorrow and swing by Otto's to see if Laser99's car came in too.

This could be the working Monday I have most looked forward to EVER!
Bye Bye Chevy Cobalt rental crap.

Interior photo when I went back just now to show my Dad who was in from TO.

I thought you got your car already. It is too bad that in Ontario you can't have different license plate at front. I would pay for your front plate.
What else to say....a beauty !!!
I did not have time today to swing by and visit Otto's car lot but I hope tomorrow is the day for me too. Cheers.

After 4+ months, it is finally here

After 4 agonizing months, my car is finally here. It arrived today and I hope it will be prepped up on Thursday. It seems like a light at the end of a tunnel.

That will explain it. I was looking for a blue coupe when I dropped by Otto's tonight. It looks great!
Thursday can't come soon enough I know.

My car tonight on it's first Canadian grocery run (did one in Munich):

Is black window trim unique to M3 or M package? I expected black chrome on mine but is not.

I've no idea. I have the standard window trim for an M3. There is also a "Shadowline" option for $800 that replaces the window trim, and the window surrounds with gloss black.
