does anyone have the Cliff Notes on this adventure
-OP takes car to dealer for routine maintenance.
-dealer cals OP, "hey we kinda dinged up your car, come on down"
-dealer tells OP "no big deal, some sand on the road, oops, only $2500 damage, most expensive thing is the wheel hardy har har"
-OP's BS detector lights up. He investigates accident site, sees skid marks and curb damage indicative of extreme reckless driving.
-OP tells dealer to not touch car, he's gonna have someone else look at it.
-other shop says there is lot of damage (can't remember the amount but it ends up being a total).
-time passes. dealer refuses to do anything to help owner recover lost value of car. dealer's insurance is taking care of it.
-BMW USA decides to help OP with cost differential between a replacement M5 and insurance payout.
-OP finds reasonable replacement car, waits for BMW USA to pay up.
-BMW USA changes it's mind. Now OP is left with no car and an insurance payout that will not cover the cost of another M5 in the same condition his was in before dealer wrecked it.
-OP takes dealer to court to recover difference in cost.
Now the internet waits.
I think I got it all, minus the dealership apologist in the middle there.
