Lease ends next week and I'm done with BMW. The dealer rep asked me about my complaints and admitted that they were losing existing clients. I assume it is enough that it got their attention. ...

You probably got one that has not been updated. After 50k mine has settled in except for oddities around corners and uphills. BMW should learn from Toyota - own up to your problems. My lease is up...

This seems to be std for BMW service. I have concluded that it is easier for them to blow smoke somewhere than go back to BMW tech. For example, with the tranny I was told that it was the adaptive...
