update for me----still in shop. got it back one day and it drove great. next morning (a saturday) I go to start it and all kinds of lights and malfunction codes come on. it would not start. would crank, sputter and die. i forced it to start by revving the engine until it "caught" and idled fine. drove fine all the way to dealership. they had same problems monday when they tried to start it. finally diagnosed it as engine wiring harness issue. had to get part from germany of course. as of friday feb. 10 the part is in and the tech was going in over the weekend to work on it. if it still does not work i'm having it transported to another dealership and hour away. the local one here in town has a bad reputation and is proving true on that based on my experience.

on a plus note, they are reimbursing me for 2 months of lease payments. of which i wont see until the "ticket is closed" meaning the car fixed. my gut tells me it never will be.
