I kinda think that you're SOL for getting the dealer to help you. The local dealer is evidently a different breed
Thats my gut feel here as well. We will see if the Attorney General complaint or BBB complaint gets them to act. I'm not optimistic at this point since even BMWNA couldn't get him to call me back. If I have to write it off as a loss, I will probably ask the other local BMW shop to take a look first and give me their opinion, and if its the same case, go to an independent shop to get a quote for the repairs as well.

Still hoping these guys come through and do the right thing though...
