Toesuf94 I am confused as to this thread of thinking: BMWNA had NOTHING to do with this incident. This is all on a dealer level, not beyond. Now; had the car a major manufacturing defect and BMWNA had not stepped up to solve it, then yeah, I would hop on this bandwagon. However, the only recourse BMWNA could possibly have in this instance is to reprimand the dealer and cut off the supply of cars to show their disdain for hurting the BMW name. If they did that, I doubt highly they would make it a public thing, as lawyers for the dealership would be all over BMW for that.
You guys are correct to demand blood from the dealership...but BMWNA is not going to open themselves up for this one. They can only sanction the dealer or pull the dealership entirely.
you are correct, however you forget that the OP contacted BMW NA for assistance. BMW NA, or whomever he talked to at the time at BMW NA, arranged for getting him another M5 and the deal was set. But BMW NA went back on the offer at the last minute. I guess someone made a decision they didn't have the authority to at corporate. Still Bad...
