As I don't know them, and you do, perhaps I'm being unfair, but I would get a "second opinion" from another BMW dealership's service department, or from a mechanic you trust.

Or possibly "worse," or, if it was time for lunch, it could have been wurst.

Can dealer back out of contract?

As to another issue, I do not believe that there is a "cooling off" period in CA, so that if there is an error in favor of the dealer, can the purchaser in CA back out? That would be a "no."

Initial Impressions of My New I3

I don't doubt you for a minute, but no AM radio?

The only initials or abbreviation that come(s) to mind is/are "WTF!"
