The dealer called and said that he would get me a loaner (I asked for a 6 Series convertible - but no dice). He did say that I should expect them to have the car a few days.

Let's hope that this second attempt to fix it works since I too am worried about seeing someone's grill getting larger in the rear view mirror and feeling that helpless feeling as I push in 3/4 throttle and get nothing but lethargy in response.
if BMWNA is now working directly with your SA, you should be in good shape. Luckily my SA took care of all of that for me and took care of the escalation. let's hope it gets fixed this time, definitly update this post afterwards and let us know
