Bought a car from dealer, they didnt transfer tag ..

I bought a used 335i from global imports bmw In atlanta, ga a few weeks ago.

I told them i want to transfer my existing custom tag from my old car to the one im purchasing.

I remember filling out paperwork regarding the tag transfer and i clearly stated to the sales person + finance guy that i wanted to transfer an old tag.

Today, i get a new tag in the mail with registration.

Can this be fixed by the dealer or do i hve to go stand in line at the dmv ?

Global Imports! BLAH... That's the problem lol..... I don't think the dealer can do anything anymore since its already new plated with registration.
I do however think you need to go complain hard about them doing it wrong. Try to score some thing out of it, all weather mats or something else worth some money. Tell them you have to take a day off work to go Stand in line and stuff.

I'm kinda pissed about this, because they asked me twice about the tag and i remember clearly telling them I wanted to transfer.

Also, I already paid a tag fee to the dealer and now if I have to change the tag myself at the DMV...I will have to pay another transfer fee ? I'm def not paying that out of pocket...

Also, there were several issues with the car when i drove off the lot...they did however take care of all of them a few days later and gave me a nice loaner for a week.

But I will definitely bring up all those issues again if they don't immediately fess up to their mistake and accept responsibility.

More power to you. When I bought my 335, I changed my insurance the same day. Go figure the dealer sent me a letter saying they couldn't register my car because the state hadn't shown that my insurance had changed yet. I went and asked why at the dealer. They tried to tag my car the very next day. Did they really expect it to be updated in the insurance company's database, then get sent to the state of ga, then it be updated in their data base in 24 hours?

So they basically sent my money back for tag and said you are on your own. I went and raised hell and got some free stuff along with BMW all weather mats lol.
