Post-sales survey

Again, and as I meant to say, why should all be "dinged" as the result of the failing(s) or shortcomings of one?

I know that it's used as a technique in basic training, but I remain of the opinion...

Post-sales survey

I certainly agree with the concept or approach of someone saying to me that his or her pay or bonus is largely dependent upon the post-sales survey, so that if there is any reason, etc., etc.

Post Sales Survey

...is poorly designed at best, at least in my opinion.

To begin with, the survey in its present format puts far too much pressure on employees, which then is passed on to customers.

And why the...

I can't speak for anyone but myself, let alone being responsible for what ard has concluded I will do in response.

As of a week or so ago, I was told by his associate, Daniel Dutton, that the key fob mail-in option would no longer be honored sue to the protests of many BMW...

Ok...listen up.

You can no longer do things over the phone, or mail in a key fob to be read in purchasing such warranties.

A 2-cylinder engine for the X-3?

I only WISH it was an April Fool's joke!

The point, though it apparently was missed by many (if not all), is that, at least as I see it, the X-3 may well be underpowered, inasmuch as it is a much...

Why not a 2-cylinder engine for the X3?

2014 Dynamic Line Retrofit

A long shot, but can an E90 (2010 335d) be fitted with a back-up camera with dynamic lines?

It has Nav and Bluetooth, but no camera at present.
