South Motor BMW

Whats up everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has had any decent service at South Motor BMW. My service engine soon light came up and I have an appointment on thursday. While dealing with an advisor by the name of Ruben, he noticed my car was lowered. He told me my car is still under warranty so everything would be covered, BUT, the dealer might have to charge me to put it up on the lift since its lowered. Is this bullshit ?

He didnt give me a quote on that, but how hard can it be to slide some 2x4 before driving it on the damn lift. Am I being taken for a ride or what ?

Man I swear I laughed in his face when he told me that. I told him we will talk more about that when I go back on thursday to drop it off.

Thanks fasteddie for the advice. I wonder if I could switch advisors even though I already have an appointment with someone.

Thing is south motors is near my job. Braman is way off for me. I wish I could take a day off though and take it there.

I live 10 minutes from south motors but they literally do more damage than good. They've broken many parts and I have yet to have some of them fixed. They always put up an argument and are never willing to help. Braman is worth the trip in my opinion.

I guess theres no winning ith south Florida dealerships. I need to have some rattles fixed in my interior but i refuse to take it to south motors. I have a hard wired radar detector and I'm hoping wherever I go I won't be given trouble for it since the rattling might be coming from the headliner

I beleive she was suppose to help me but was backed up then they stuck me with the other guy.

I thought the same. I will make sure I let my advisor know thats BS.

Good luck man. I recently installed a remote key +. While tapping into the wires under the glovebox, I tapped into one wrong wire which caused an electrical error to show up on my i-drive. It then went away after I corrected the problem. I wonder if they would give me shit for it even though its no longer showing up on my system check.

Send a message via ICQ to Miami1683
Guys ask for Paul in BMW parts. Tell him David sent you there and you have a concern about what you were told.

I'm sure he will help out if he can. If not then take it to VGA in Pompano and ask fr don woody. I'm sure he'll take care of you

Thanks for the responses guys.

When I went back to the shop, they never mentioned the extra fee for lifting the car since its lowered. I knew that couldnt be possible.

Which Brahman are you guys suggesting? Downtown miami?
And if you go in with mods ( down pipe And intercooler And charge pipe) how would you guys go about it to not stir the pot too much and have them void you?
