Almost hate to ask, but do you have a warranty?

yes, i reported these problems as my factory warranty expired, so its under goodwill warranty.

im just disappointed with the speed and accuracy (or the lack of) of the repair work.

yes, bought it brandnew in October 2009. one of the very first 7s here. i have only driven it for 15,000kms since new.

worse, dealer is 7 hours drive away, so it wont be easy to go there and check on my car. flights times arent convenient either

Really shocked to see issues like you're experince with such a low mileage car but that been said I'm having some nagging issues with my Audi S5 which I bought new last year. I rarely drive it, 1-2 times a month, and last time I dropped it off to have a airbag malfunction light fixed the Audi tech hinted that because my car sits around and is barely driven that I'm going to have more issues long term. Kind of makes you wonder that cars like the 7er should be driven more often rather than having them sit in the garage.

my dealer called and informed me that my car remains unfixed despite the installation of a new turbo, alternator, belt, pulleys, and turbo ducting
Should i let them pay my monthly financing? give me extended warranty? buy back my car? what else should i ask?

Guess that depends mostly on whether you want to keep the car. Is this the same dealer you purchased it from? If you want to trade into a new car, I would think they would bend over backwards to accommodate you. This long in the shop is crazy and they know it. I think itís time for them to call in a rep from BMW.

Already reported this with BMW Asia, I'm on holiday, if the car is unfixed by the time I get back a couple of weeks from now, I'm gonna demand for a buy back or trade assist with a 6GC

just took delivery of my car yesterday, so far so good. i just detailed it half day today. good thing is they updated the software and now i have voice command etc..... the best thing is it was fixed under warranty ---since the total bill was US$10,000 and the distributor has given me another one year warranty as compensation for the 2 months repair delay.

its a new car feeling again after not having it for 2 months.
