I tried testing it with a garden hose from light sprinkle to full monsoon. I'll try to call them and ask them how to reinitialize it.
My dealer has been asbolutely awful.
I was supposed to get the extended warranty at cost and I have tried no less than 15 times to contact them regarding it (email fax, telephone, in person) with no results. I gave up after 3 month. The frustration is just not worth it.
The only way to reinitialise the sensor is at a dealer so ringing them wont help....
Mate ..... it is most certainly worth it. Your efforts are more than adequate. You have just spend a substantial amount of your hard earned $$ on a car from a respected marque... and even if you had not done any of those things, its just plain rude. I would rock up to the dealership and request a meeeting with the dealer principal. Outline the attempts you have made to get the warranty sorted out to no avail, make it so obvious that there is no other answer than "Yep... we stuffed up, I'll make sure its fixed".
Remind them that your soapbox is a large one (here) and that while you do not wish to outline your concerns publicly, you may be forced to ask for advice from the wider M5 community which will obviously involve outlining the parties involved. Hopefully they will read that as "Fix it or I will ***** to everyone in sundry". Normally thats enough to get them off their snatches
