Another 1200 mile service story

Dropped my new M3 for the 1200 mile service at the dealer yesterday. On pickup I noticed:

~21 miles driven while at the dealer
~3 MPG drop during the day (I have been resetting each fillup to compare to "pen & paper notes"

Next service due in April of 2014 - minor error here but seems like maybe our "lifetime" fluids are getting better Just kidding. Trying not to be upset about the experience.

Notified service advisor before I left the dealer. End of the day so not much else could be done. On a positive note, the service director called me shortly after and said they were "looking into" what happened.

This morning, as soon as the car is cranked in the garage, low tire pressure warning lights up.

Seems like dealer service is becoming a "roll of the dice" - it can be good or bad.

More info to follow. As always, input from this group is appreciated.
