Visited my dealer yesterday morning to show the wife my wonderful new car to find it stored beneath an X5. I hope their insurance is up to date! :grrrr:

what worries me is how this shop treats their cars in general. :viking:

so they lifted the X5, have no space for the M5 elsewhere and decided to park it under the X5?

reevo...is that saphire black or carbo black ?

do you have any pictures of the car outside.

Since I've seen interlagos in the flesh and in the Sun I've
taken a real liking to the colour. Its not a loud colour - check
the thread I started Sunday evening.

It would be nice to see your colour outside of the workshop !!!!

Carbon Black is not available as a standard colour on the M5 so must be Saphire Black.

The second bay in the pic is being used to store some equipment, the X5 is not balanced on the lift, and i would say you need to find a new dealer, if they handle cars this way.

A vehicle lift will still stand up to the X5 even if its unbalanced, you can still work on it and not have any accidents. Btw, is that your wife in the background? :)

I hope there are no leaks. I would go bananas if that was my car... I know the lifts can hold it.. but the What If factor comes to mind. If they don't have any space to store a vehicle like the M5... I wouldn't use them.
