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.
2015 Alpine White 228i Coupe ("El Chapo") with Sport Line, Premium Package, Black Dakota Leather, FineLine Stream Wood Trim, Lighting Package, Driver Assistance Package and Track Handling Package and those wonderful non-runflat Michelin Pilot Super Sport Summer Tires.
