Of course, using a customer as guinea pig is never nice. However, that is much, much better than this Mickey Mouse show of talking: of diagnosing, about calling BMWNA, about legal counseling, about "if you do this we will do that". And the car is still sitting there for days waiting for something to happen on its own.

This is absurd.
Thank you, Technic, I agree. It's absurd.
Michael Schott - you could be right. I am not a mechanic nor a car engineer. I am just the end-user. They did however, comment to me, that they will put in a new iDrive (call from the dealership service rep, which I did not state would satisfy my comfort level with the car). Maybe they mean "software". It it's wires, etc., that worries me more. It's been there two day, they told me it won't be resolved until next week. Again worrisome.
