I feel pretty sorry for the OP, as this thread now has absolutely nothing to do with his original intent. Maybe time to start a new one.

You're engaging in more than a fair bit of interpolation. It's also evident that you feel entitled to a new BMW as a "loner" (it's "loaner" by the way) having brought in a nearly 5-year-old 3 series, not even sure if this is where you bought the car. In just about every post which have been absolutely riddled with spelling errors, you attempt to make your case, though only succeeding in revealing your default and rather angry state of mind.

I think people should be grateful for any service loaner as dealers aren't obligated to give you one, even less so if you didn't purchase that car there.

common debating tactic. you attack the person and not the argument. if u want to b picky the look back in my previous posts i have spelled "loaner" both way. its a typo. that neither here nor there. even if i was illiterate that is not what is being discussed here. and no matter what year i buy i do feel entitled to a certain standard of service. i am 22 i cannont afford a brand new bimmer nor a more expensive model. the same reason someone would purchase a 328 and not a 335. and i did purchase the car from the dealer.

I actually purchased a 328 because I prefer it to a 335, money wasn't a factor.

It seems more than a bit of a first-world problem to complain about being given a car to use, that if new was probably worth more than your 335.

Dude, has anyone ever taught you to be humble and count your blessings? Or is your head so big that you can't smell your own shit, so you assume that it doesn't stink? Remember, the higher you are, the harder you can potentially fall.

Chevy Malibu is a fine car, and most people drive that because it's what they can afford. I'm not a fan of American cars, but I'm not going to knock it. Have you ever driven a Lada, Ssanyang, or a 1990 Fiat Panda? I have. Trust me, the Malibu is far from being a piece of shit.

Not to gang up here, but I do want to make a few points.

First, while you may not consider your grammar and spelling important, people on this forum have to read what you're writing to understand what you're saying. Even if you didn't major in English, have some common courtesy and capitalize the first word of a sentence. Perhaps spell out the word instead of using the same abbreviations you would use in a text message.

Second, I think that you've made many assumptions in your numerous posts. You aren't "entitled" to anything because you bought a BMW. If you don't like the service you're getting, try working through it like a rational adult. Were you promised a BMW by the dealer when you bought the car? Have you tried other dealerships?

Third, people who buy 328's vs 335's (or any base engine vs upgrade) are not necessarily doing so for economic or budgetary reasons. Not everywhere is like Miami where you try to obtain status symbols while living paycheck to paycheck. I'm not saying you do this, but from what you're writing it seems like this could be your mentality.

My suggestion would be to take a step back and think about how you are coming off before you say something stupid.

On the other hand, if my family or close friends need urgent help, and I can sell the car, pay off the loan, and take the difference to help them out (and I can, currently I owe half of what the car is worth), I would, without even thinking about it. It's a car, it doesn't define who I am or how much I'm worth. I can always save up and get another one. May family and friends are irreplaceable.

because i choose abbreviate shouldnt be an issue and point out the fact that i did not capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence is nit pickicking. even "rational adults" express their displeaure with a situation. this is the last time i deal with ft lauderdale bmw. and not that i need to tell u how my life is set up but i do not live pay check to pay check.

As I said, I didn't assume you are doing so, I was merely illustrating a point based on the way you are writing. Your financial situation is none of my business. The blanket assumptions you make about 328 owners are my business.
