etc.....



If not for the out spoken some people may have actually bought that malarky.

However, facts and actions taken should be part of the process, not all shouting.

That is how I eventually resolved my situation.

PPXYZ please tell us what another mechanic, lawyer, BMWNA representative, etc has said with respect to this situation. We want to help, but your approach does not make it easy
1. When I ride with them, they can feel the problems enough to bring it into the shop and look at it for a couple of days. When they ride by themselves they can't feel it any longer.

2. From their POV, this is how ALL new X3's they have in their lot drive...in that case...OMG. Note: This actually couldn't be true because even my car does these things intermittently. If it was designed this way then it would do these things all the time.

3. It isn't just the transmission which is nuts, it is also the bouncing suspension and now a brand new problem that is so dangerous, it could have led to a serious accident except for sheer luck. We'll see what happens on that score.
