I just found this nugget:

Call BMW Roadside Assistance.* Dial (800) 332-4269 for a free tow to a BMW Certified Collision Repair Center.

I'm adding this phone number to my phonebook.

2 differences in my mind to use a BMW Certified center:

1. They will use BMW parts (unlikely that a newer car would use copy parts anyhow, but who knows?)
2. "BMW recommends BMW Certified...

You'll be fine. There's no limit. Short of carrying a sign around the floor saying "Follow me to go to the premium lounge".

Well, I'd rather get a Benjamin :). But, if I had that much money, I may care more about getting the card, since money would me something I had more than enough of.

I concur. I doubt the number of people switching just because of this fee to be minimal. It would take more than the fee to drive a large change.

Why not just tow it to the BMW shop in the first place? My thought is that in a situation like this, you want a BMW certified shop behind any repairs for a lease return situation. They can't very...

Does it have anything to do with weather? That part of the world can get humid, and humidity and electronics aren't the best bed fellows.

I don't envy your situation, and expect it's causing you a lot of angst. Probably more than $3K worth, since it's more the uncertainty than the amount, which is about $3 a day.

I put mine down at night and when it is cloudy. It helps visibility. Why would you want them up if there is no sun - they are SUN shades?

And what's wrong with how it is going now?

I'd volunteer, but in some ways, it's more "fun" to be part of the 99%, if you know what I mean. I don't want to be a kill joy.
