Since we haven't heard from Tommy in such a long time it could be that they are in negotiations or ABahn lawyers slammed him with a gag order.

No negotiations have been made. Autobahn has spoken loud and clear, "Their way or the highway". Currently going through the lawsuit process. Court date will be months away.

Months away?! Sorry to hear that Tommy. I know this has been a nightmare, and we all feel really bad for you and hope this all ends well. To what extent that is is yet to be determined I suppose, but keep hope alive! Keep hope alive!

If you have a need to get behind the wheel of an M5 just for giggles, let me know. Maybe we can meet up somewhere.

tjav8b I hope you play serious legal hardball against this dispicable dealer. I hope/trust you have a vicious cobra(s) in your corner because they'll throw their worse snakes at you. Hell get a mongoose. All the best of luck to you.

Hey brother hang in there! I truly believe you'd be better off going through the lawsuit, they may still opt to settle the very last minute. In any case Take NO prisoners!!!

It will be MONTHS. Like next March....

Just my guess, but the courts move at glacial speeds compared to an internet forum!

Agreed, even March may be optimistic....hope not for Tommy's sanity, but lawyers seem do do everything in slomo (to me at least). Hang in there Tommy!

Poor impression of a high end dealership

Now there is a dealer I would never do business with. Goodwill is much cheaper than ill will.
