They also said if the tech test drove it and felt the surge they would submit the issue to BMW, but they probably won't do anything since there is no code showing. So basically I would be out the $95 diagnostic fee for nothing. WTF???
Wow, and I thought my dealer was copping out. It is not normal, it is a mechanical problem, not all 545's do it, and BMW has authorized repairs/replacement for others for whom no error codes showed up. Can you find another dealer? Or show your SA the guys posts on this thread that have gtten fixes authorized by BMW?
