What about getting the local tv investigative news channel involved...that would surely shine an unwanted light on the situation.

Getting close to 1000 posts!!!! I certainly thought they would have done the right thing... Are you not having withdrawals without your M5?

I certainly would miss my "DECOMPRESSION CHAMBER"...hopefully you've got another ride in mind, since it seems like this is going to take some time.

Fortunatly the insurance company will gain the title to the car which will then probably be sold to a junk yard to supply parts for aging M5's. Probably the only thing positive to come out of this mess.

Going on 8 weeks now and yes I am going through withdrawals. I have been driving a corolla every day since my car was destroyed.

They are still spamming the Google reviews trying to salvage their reputation. Every review has 6 or so people in favor of the dealership, obviously the same people each time.

Definitely keep policing this. It takes many people flagging a review as spam to have it removed, so we all have to keep on it.

I still can't believe this whole thing, 8 weeks in a Corolla? Every time I'd see an M car around me I would get so mad I would die!

Makes me think twice about my next car; was sure about the next M6 but after BMW NA not doing anything about your case, I would not dish out 120K on a car with no support from the factory...

I've flagged every single one as spam and suggest that everyone else do the same.
