While I see your POV I have to respectfully disagree. I will worry about how long my car is out of commission. It is an asset that I am paying a significant amount of money to own and every day that goes by where I am unable to drive the car as a result of this recall is money that I am paying for an asset/service that I cannot use. Although I do agree with your comment about "expecting issues" I also have to stand firm as a consumer and expect that when issues arise that they will be treated properly. Not communicating with your customers when the majority of your 2013 M5/M6 fleet is grounded is not what I consider good business. I am not expecting them to have an immediate fix but at least communicate with your customers.

If I dont make my car payment on time I can guarantee that BMWFS will hold me accountable. Therefore I am asking for the same courtesy when its BMW thats got the issue.
