Thank you for all the support!

Good luck Tommy! Hope they come back with a fair settlement in your favor. Everyday that goes by without a resolution is another day you can't enjoy your M. What rental did they give you?

Good to hear and i hope you get a great replacement car soon.

I'm assuming your insurance totalled the car for you and i hope they go after the insurance of the dealer since they are responsible for the damage and get the money reimbursed from them. Keep us posted.

I understood it was the crash dealership's insurance company he was working with, not his insurance compay. Do I have this backwards?

I see.
If it was the new bodystyle 5 series they were offering you, I probably woulda taken it as a loaner (on their bill).
If it was the previous gen., I woulda passed too.

Would you be willing to wait for the new F10 M5 when they hit the NA market? If so, wait for it and get yourself a Ford Fiesta in the mean time...

Any 5 series loaner is better than taking the bus
