It is not the seller's responsibility to explain it to them.
When I did my first lease, I asked for a blank copy of the form a day or so before signing so that I could read and resarch. If you don't like the form - lobby to get it changed.
Sure it's a buyer's, but there is no social responsibility on the part of a business to any individual no matter how disadvantaged he may be, correct? Hence the banking crisis, right? People should have read their contracts, and the banks that were buying the derivatives should have known what they were buying. oops the guys at Goldman made it impossible to understand; still.... that's how it should be

Correct. It rubs the other way as well - purchasers have no social responsibility that the dealership makes a sufficient return (otherwise none would go out of business). Their responsibility is to get the best price they can. Period.

The purchaser should have talked to someone who would represent his best interests - like an accountant or friend expert in these transactions. Same goes for buying a home - why not a car? There was also the feedback survey that the dealership would get dinged on.

OK, as I said I understand your philosophy and it's a common one. The buyer has to always know as much as the seller; this is not always possible of course as I have demonstrated with derivatives example, dentist, car repair, financial advise, and so on, but fine. The problem is, when the businesses don't police themselves, governments do, which will result in forthcoming regulations even worse than Sarbanes-Oxley and that would not be good for the country as a whole.

Anyone know how to "Restore Factory Settings" or "Restore Defaults" or basically erase all personal information such as navigation destinations, contacts, telephone numbers, music store on the built-in hard driver, profiles, etc from the new F01/F02 7 series? I'm trying to sell my car and would like to erase all personal information from it before giving it away.
