2. Your post shows an amazing ignorance at how the legal system and attorneys work... OF COURSE he will take the case at no charge and make BMW pay all HIS fees. All that will happen is you will get the car replaced, and he will get his fees paid. Without an attorney you will get your car replaced... the difference in the two scenarios? An attorney makes money.
After 2,200-odd posts, how can you be "amazed" by the ignorance of anyone? This guy doesn't even make it into my Top 10 (though he does get points for trying).

On a more serious note, I am wondering if this is another bus issue. That could explain their making a decision not to run a long PUMA case and rack up tech hours chasing an unsolvable problem. Seems to be happening way too often, especially for a vehicle this far into its life cycle. I wonder if they changed suppliers?

OTOH it may be something as simple as the tech totalling the car on a test drive.
