So whatever is the final outcome of this situation... I hate Phucking dealers man.. BMw is just getting annoying by day.. I purchased an 09 M5 and noticed some wierd water stains on all the windows outside including the sideview mirrors.. I reported it the very next day and took it back a week and a half ago.. Car is still there, they are telling me that they are trying to scrape whatever that is on the glass plus if it doesn't work they'll involve bmw NA in the matter cuz they purchased the car from them... Its been there for a week and a half and i have a PHuckin corolla as a loaner piece of crap.... I am starting to hate BMW dealers altogether.

09 M5 Interlagos Blue w/ Silver Stone interior.
Pretty much fully loaded besides the ventilated seats. All the options you can think of.
RPI Pulley, Scoops w/ blockoff plates, BMC filter, charcoal filter delete.
ASR GEN III exhaust ... Unleash the demon in your car.

I REALLY hope you wrote down the odometer milage when you dropped it off - - uh, judging from this thread, they may be trying to clean off the brown spots at high speeds...

Keep checking and flagging those Google reviews, guys. The dealer keeps spamming them with that web site listing.

Has anyone stopped to think what would have happened had the dealer been allowed to attempt to repair the car? The thought of what they would have done to get this car back on the road scares the living hell out of me. Honestly: Would they have cobbled the car back together with enough baling wire and gum to get it on the road or would they have done the job correctly?

Honestly, the thought that they would have cobbled it back together and given it back to the owner for him to potentially drive it at the limit and have it fail, killing him or some other innocent motorist, scares the living CRAP out of me. THIS is why this dealer needs to get everything that is coming to it.

I read the reviews and nobody once mentioned the customer service of the dealership for it's ability to destroy a customer's car without remorse! This service allows the customer to purchase something newer without the threat of bodily harm or nasty airbag rash! THAT is SERVICE!

Autobahn Ownership

I have been lurking here for awhile. I think its about time I signed up and started posting.

After a little searching I found that Autobahn is owned by John Chase. His email is [email protected]

The Chase family gives lots of money and even a new Land Rover to charity every year. I think that members should email him and ask how they can give that to charity but not give what is rightfully due to a customer and Iraq vet? Maybe we should have him email Gustav and then it can be posted here.
