I never had to question the old SA, but the "new guy" wanted to ignore the squealing right rear brake, and blamed it on my bald tires claiming it was traction control engaging (WTF?? This was at a super slow parking lot crawl) Turned out to be the hill assist feature not adjusted correctly.

So for now, no JBD for me.. until my SA can gain some trust..
Really good point.

Good luck with the SA... did you ask the old SA who he'd recommend? I'd developed a relationship with the master mechanic who worked with my old SA (on the E39 under warranty)...when the time came to return to BMW warranty world, I asked the mechanic "who should I be talking to"..they know. He put in the word for me and my SA has been nothing short of perfect. Hard to believe, eh?

Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
