It will take far less of my time than having the dealer do it, given transportation and waiting time, but it is tempting just on the principle of making them right this wrong. Not sure whether they'll toss in a free car wash...
I'm with you on the inconvenience of having to take it to the dealer. IN my case it is 3 hours away though, I do go to that city regularly.

I suggested to them I should get a free jacket or something as they are going to get paid by BMWCA for the work I already did. They weren't overly amused by that suggestion.

My problem is fixed so unless they can give me something worthwhile to compensate for the inconvenience, I won't be taking it in.

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
