Just pull into ANY dealer and they will top off the fluid.

Just b/c its a loaner doesnt mean to treat the car like sh*t. If everyone did that, dealers would just stop giving out loaners and you would get Enterprise Checy Aveo's from now on.

What do you mean places you wouldn't take yours? I hope your aware that your responsible for anything that happens to the loaner.

Automatic 328s have different software tuning for throttle response than on the sticks (at least that's been my experience)

lol i know sorry. I just find it odd that they gave me a 328 xdrive automatic that was hard to accelerate and that had a really slow throttle response. My car went in for a valve cover gasket replacement thats why i got a loaner.

I'd love to know how you know the car has only one quart of oil when it doesn't come with a dipstick besides the guy currently driving it. If that were the case the engine would be done by now.
