And?

Many Board Sponsors work with out of state clients. Perhaps you didn't know that, though.

I didn't say it would be easier than working with a more local dealership, though that may come...

Add On Mobility Program

The initial buzz suggested that there wouldn't be a charge for the rental provided to i3 purchasers for use on long trips, which I found highly unlikely.

And it turns out that there will be a...

My question is, is there anyway (sic) to get out of the 2014 x3 lease (60k msrp car in excellent condition, 10k miles a year but only 6500k (sic) miles on it after 1.5 years) and also still get an...

I wrote a response to Greg Poland's post on the i3 on "Allocations Available," inquiring as to confusion concerning whether the i3 was called a 2014 or 2015 model.

The question was, at least in my...

i3s in Stock

Greg:

I'm a bit confused as to model years on the i3.

Can you tell me whether your post as to availability refers to the current model year, and, if so, is it called a 2014 or a 2015?

Anyway, I dinged them very slightly for that, and then later my CA got on touch to express his irritation that I hadn't filled out the survey with 100% approval.

Where in the World is Daniel Dutton?

It appears that he left Pacific BMW. I'm just curious where he went...and :dunno:.

However, do not be afraid.

Greg Poland will fill in admirably, and will pick up the slack.

2011 X5 3.5d Extendede Warranty

Daniel Dutton at Pacific BMW in Glendale seems to be a crowd favorite.

I purchased one from him for my wife's 2010 335d.

He and Greg Poland (in sales) have excellent reputations.

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.

Uh...it's "trivial."

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."
