For those of you wishing to have a fun read...Search for "Savage BMW" here. I was somewhat involved in that saga and all I can tell you is, you're only seeing one side of the story.

Having witness this first hand, the M5 owner should have immediately contacted HIS insurance company and have them deal with the dealership's insurance rather than try to haggle with the dealership. That or call his lawyer "friend" immediately and have him show up at the dealership with him.
I know. I was being as they say, facetious.

Since BMW gives me a stripped, reeking from tobacco 328i as a loaner, I have been hanging around the lounge/service area instead. What I don't know unfortunately will hurt me.
There is no more beautiful car on Bimmerfest than my gorgeous Forest Green Porsche 911 coupe!

Porsche: Accept no substitute, unless you're poor!

The E90 sedan is the last in the line of great 4 door 3 Series BMW's. Too bad.
