Service Dept Dodges Problems

Why I keep buying these cars, I don't know.

I've had five, four 7-series and now a 550. Problem is, when something unusual happens/doesn't work (like a trans shifting badly or oil pump hum), they...

BMW committed (in writing) to paying me $2,500 for a debacle involving 2 dealers. The check never came, now the rep won't return emails. Need somebody with some clout to stand behind the commitment....

And they did the whole thing without argument, hemming and hawing, etc? Mine's a CPO which shouldn't (they say) make a difference in getting repairs done, but I get the sense that somebody's trying...

09 750 Whine

It seems to be general knowledge that this is an oil pump, but local dealer won't fix, waiting for the regional bmw tech "expert" from LA to confirm/assess. What's the deal on this? Are there Bay...

What phones work?

Hi all-

Bought a 09 750 in March and have yet to make a phone connect. Will pair, but not connect. BMWs "approved" list is hopelessly out of date, dealer says "they have the best luck with...

Thanks. I overlooked the obvious. Based on the BBB, sounds like my experience is par for the course. I'll try him on LinkedIn but won't hold my breath.

Who owns San Francisco BMW

Does anyone have contact info for whoever owns BMW of SF? The GM doesn't return calls and doesn't seem concerned that after three months his people haven't sent my car's title to DMV.

Thanks

harsh shifting

I recently picked up a CPO 09 750i with 30K miles. It had some hesitation from a stop at the dealer, but they dismissed it as the adaptive trans and said it would go away. Being a slow learner, I...

Succumbed to another 7-series

Thanks for the info, all. I thought I could do the 5 as an alternative to the 7, but twenty years in the 7 series land yachts pulled me back. Bought an 09 750i this weekend.

Hi all-

Can anyone do a Manheim search for recent sales of 2010 550i and 550i GT?

Thanks
