I had this happen to me at Open Road over 10 years ago and I have never set foot back in their dealership. It's sad to see that things have not changed.

I would recommend Ricki Shamen at BMW of Tenafly. Very direct and efficient. I've done three EDs through her.

I'm still waiting for a call back from Mark at JMK from several years ago.

That really stinks. I had my first ED car get held up for several weeks at the VDC around the 4th of July without any explanation. Hopefully, whatever was damaged gets fixed up in a hurry.
