More self aggrandizement. This is going to be good.

EXACTLY.

This "BMWBabe" is insulting everybody's intelligence by joining here yesterday and immediately zeroing in on this thread, expecting us to believe him?

Money says it that he is the GM or one of his reports.

I mean, really. Pathetic.

I am actually glued to this thread. Its either go eat and perhaps not get to read a post as it is made, or I can sit here eagerly awaiting the next juicy morsel.

This might actually pass for funny with the Rush Limbaugh crowd. How am I to know?

The real humor arises from your rabid defence of Flow. It's quite amusing to watch you perpetuate such a thin ruse. None of us are taking the bait. It's time for someone at Flow to chime in and call the OP a liar. You're going completely off of the script.

Coontie, I didn't call you a liar but I do seriously question the tone of your narrative on the event. I cannot recall one person there who would fit the description of "menacing." Perhaps you embellished a tad for drama and effect..? For instance, I don't recall seeing the first broomstick in the showroom. But, I did see a mighty sweet M3 last time.

This most definitely is a male, and most probably an employee of the dealership. Maybe we are on the script but with a slight twist.

Yeah, okay okay, I get it. The entirety of satisfied customers could show up here and dispute the word of this solitary poster. But, they would all be liars and trolls. The only one with any credibility is the one who is familiar with broomsticks. The disaffected lynchmob rules on bimmerfest. It's a shame. I thought this type of childish behavior was confined to lessor mortals who drive Kias.

Basically, coontie, I am a repeat customer - a satisfied customer. From what I have read here, you have a case of sour grapes. Had you taken your complaint to the dealership, it would have been more productive for you than smearing the dealership on an internet forum.
Taken my complaint?!?! WHAT COMPLAINT?

I HAD no complaint!! Out of the blue, the GM hauled me into his office, whereupon he & his Sancho Panza side-kick began a rather bad Abu Fayed vs. Jack Bauer reenactment.

All because of a post I made six months ago. SIX MONTHS, do you understand?

I was just sitting there, reading my book, minding my business, waiting for my tire to get looked at.

I mean, what are you even talking about?

Look. Whatever. You love Flow, good for you. But let's not pretend like none of this happened because a) it did and b) they posted here and admitted it. So, not sure what else there is to say, really.

No, I am who I claim to be, but I can see that truth has no bearing on this community. You are a mean-spirited lynch mob and have lost all credibility. If I were a potential Flow customer I would see that the problem is here, not the dealership. I'm back to bashing liberals on political forums. Over and out...

Is that how you spell lessor?

More than one gender-bending higher educated troll might help. One with BF credibility. Come on Flow... We need another shill. Chewing BMWTroll up and spitting it out left us deeply unsatisfied.

BTW we love bimmers here. No disaffection there.

Actually you admitted being caught. You chose to whine about it publicly; not their choice.

They'll never learn. A hundred bucks says the next poster from Flow actually represents his true identity and continues to bollocks up the issue and fan the flames.

Do yourselves a favor. Instead of listening to one guy's beef, who admitted that he was not a regular Flow customer, talk to some people who have actually purchased cars there, have spent time in the showroom, and know the folks who work there.
BMWBabe,

Unless you WORK there (do you?), you don't know all the facts, either. You are a satisfied customer, good for you. That doesn't qualify you as miss "I-know-Flow".

As I said it before, "Coontie is no angel". However, I found his story believable because it's consistent and has been confirmed by 4BMWFamily who I'm supposed works for Flow since he/she knows details that only insider knows.

Do you think the GM at Flow he wishes he never said anything and this whole thing would just go away? I think so.

I looked it up and a lessor is someone who leases. Freudian slip from FlowShill?

I'm actually giving a seminar next week on internet marketing. The Husker M3 ebay fiasco was going to be my case study. I think I need to start rewritting my Power Point presentation.

It meets the very definition of slander or libel (kind of a grey area because slander is spoken, libel is written - it's almost both here). They very well could bring a legal case against him.

He approached them with a price, they did not meet it that should be the end of the conversation. The most he could have posted on here was they wouldn't budge very far on the price or something similar to that.

However with his broomstick statement he provided a statement that very well could be damaging to the dealership for nothing wrong they did to him short of wasting a few minutes of his time. It's not a very professional way to do business.

However on the other side of the coin the dealership did equally as wrong by doing what they did when he came in for service.

Regardless of how much you guys hate dealers and think they are evil it doesn't mean you should be able to damage their reputations with slanderous statements because you couldn't agree on a price. Now if you agreed on a price verbally and LATER they came back and backed out on their verbal agreement then you would have every right to moan and complain and make harsh statements. This one was very undeserved IMHO though and shows the lack of class of the OP.
