Is It worth It??

Sometimes I wonder if its worth getting the great Handling and Performance you get in a BMW and put up with all the other things that go wrong with the Ultimate Driving Machine.
Redelivery 2/22/05-5,000+ miles,problems,SOS button doesn't work,Automatic Headlights don't shut off,Noise coming from air pump,Radio kept coming on by its self,Airbag on passenger side,A/C keeps shuting off,CD stops playing,NAV screen goes blank,4 TCU UNITS,couldn't program in the address in the Nav after 4 tries used the other master key and eveything worked fine,4 service calls in 7 weeks.
cheers
vern

Get a good loaner and tell them you don't want the car back until it's perfect and they've kept it an extra day and road tested it twice.

Keep us posted on the results. If you don't get resolution, maybe you can get Vatkens involved?

Bummer, Vern. My '05 (ED in late March, USD in early May) has been pretty darn flawless. Yes, it has had a few niggling NAV issues here and there but nothing that repeated itself nor anything that a Ctrl-Alt-Del (i.e. turn the car off and come back a couple hours later) didn't cure.

So from my point of view, it is worth as the car has been wonderful! Hang in there, I do think it's worth it....
