What's the best loaner you can get? Any possibility of getting a loaner like an M3? or a 750?

The loaner process is strictly up to the individual dealership. Whatever they want to loan you, they will. If a dealer wanted to dedicate a fleet of 750's as loaners, then yes you could get a 750 as a loaner. Does any dealer want to do that :dunno:

:rofl: Are you for real?

Think more like Ford Focus from Enterprise... if your dealer does have a fleet of BMW loaners (usually very few and only for "priority" customers), then you'll maybe get a stripper 325i or X3 2.5i.

Actually, my dealer has a pretty full range of BMW cars although I've never seen a 7 series loaner or an M car. I've had 325i's, a 330 convertible, several Z4 2.5's and 3.0's, and a 3.0 X3. I'm guessing your relative "status" with the dealer may affect what you're offered.

M3?????? I don't think so. But I've had a 750, several 5 series including tourings, ti's, lot's of 3 series and an X5.

There is a new silver 7 in my office lot right now with dealer plates on it and a sticker across the back window that reads "Competition Imports Courtesy Car" (Long Island).

Not a bad trade for a 325i.

No, it's not for me. I have been there for service twice and once I had a CPO 5, and the other time it was a camry.

As loaners I have had: two different X5's (MY2005), a 530i (MY2005) and an X3. While I was picking my car up the last time a loaner convertable was brought back on a flat bed, it had been totaled. d'oh

You've been in for service quite often, no?

The Enterprise branch at my dealer actually bought a handful of BMWs (stripper 325is) for loaner duty... interestingly, it seems they won't give you one unless you ask for it... I usually let them know when I make my appointment that I will be dropping by on date X, please hold back a BMW loaner for me... :bigpimp: My dealer also has thei own BMW courtesy cars... usually handed out only if your repair is going to take more than two days... I got a Z4 (in winter :cry: ) that way... even though it was a 2.5 slushbox, it was still fun... :thumbup:

CPO5 = "certified pre-owned 5-series" and not some super secret code I'm guessing!
