I just found this post and although ridiculous, it is more than likely BMW does have workers monitor these boards, to gather marketing opinions and possible future feature requests. If they are monitored I would say this:

1. Instead of paying people to monitor boards online, train your F@#king techs so they can fix my car right the FIRST time or maybe even the SECOND time. Almost every damn repair I needed required 2, 3 and on two occasions 4 times in the shop to resolve the same issues. These weren't even major issues, 4 times in the shop to fix a windshield washer tells me they need to go back to school. In fact the solution actually came from this board. I had to explain it to the techs at Hassel BMW in NY. That's right, I mentioned you by name!

2. Read the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. The essence is that use of aftermarket parts does not in itself void a warranty.

3. When I come in to have my car serviced, if I politely request a full key read of services performed, don't tell me its proprietary information
and not available to me. Its my f$%king car so its my information too.

4. Make it 2000% clear to your employess that if you take a customers car for an "extended test drive" or use if they "drive it like they stole it", their asses are gone. forever, from ALL BMW service centers.

5. Read no.1 above over and over, as many times as it takes, until you make this happen.

Oh yeah, have a nice day!

I also have to agree to the above...but if there's one thing I learned from what people on this board have experienced...it is to never trust any valet or bmw "specialist" to test drive my car.

There's just been way too many problems of this type when someone else gets behind the wheel.
