What a horrid experience for the OP, body blows from both Autobahn BMW Forth Worth and BMW of NA. Best of luck getting justice and fight the good fight!

I love it! Thanks for making it official, perhaps a sticky is in order by our Fearless Leader?

Google search for "dealer crashed BMW" is # 1 woohoo, also somebody close by should go into the dealership acting as if buying a car/ looking arond and then mention to the sales people about the negative publicity with other potential customers around and see what happens. Good luck OP

I wonder how many of their customers acatually trawl the net though? Sure the M entusiasts will but I'd reckon 90% of the service customers don't. Whats needed is a decent sized advertisement outside the dealer ship, bill board, ad truck, posters whatever. Wouldn;t take much for someone trustworthy to set up a pay pal account and everyone donate a few bucks, would have a decent add campaign in no time. Maybe even advertise in some local papers?

Not suggesting advertising the story as we have it here, might be considered too confrontational for litihation, but it would hurt to make potential customers aware of the basics, they did crash his car and took months to get this sorted, didn't come clean about the damage and won't fix the situation. Just the facts.

The OP could just have his totaled car put on a trailer and put it outside the dealership.

That doesn't mean anything. Of course that will be the first result. What you want is for this thread to be the first result whenever just Autobahn BMW is being searched for.

Search engines have become sophisticated enough now that they generally ignore this method of internet exposure.
