As the purchaser of a US-spec car, you should not expect any tools in the toolkit, nor a first aid kit, nor a warning triangle. Any tools that you do find are just incidental and subject to the Germans' generosity since we already pay so little for the cars.

There's pretty much nothing...all I got was the adapter for gas and a latex glove (presumably for the lubing you get for not getting a tool kit). I've heard some minor additions are given, but don't expect anything close to the tool kits of old.

It seems they cut back further each year. You should at least be sure to have the tow hook.
Mine came with these:


You can buy some to put in there, or the next time you get a loaner you can see what tools it “had”.

I wouldn't recommend selling your soul. I once met a Russian who couldn't figure out why any company would rent a car. After all, you could switch your bad alternator with the rental car's.

Some BMW drivers are ***holes, cutting people off, weaving in and out of traffic dangerously. Add theft to that and that just cements the bad reputation that BMW drivers have. Mercedes drivers tend not to be that way, nor are Saab or Jaguar drivers.

Alas, another fail at sarcastic humor. We need a font or color for this. Better in red italics?

Any missing tools are available from BMW and are very inexpensive.

I don't think mine came with the fuel nozzle adapter. Does anyone know the part number?
Thanks.

It isn't in the tool kit. It comes in a plastic jar along with a rubber glove. Your salesman should have handed it to you and explained its use. You will need it!

I never needed one in Michigan, but further down south, it seemed liked all the truck stops required the nozzle.

Yeah. I got shafted on the tools. I'm guessing I'll have to pay $100 for an allen wrench or $200 for a screw driver. I like the loaner idea. Before driving my vehicle off the lot the sales guy did happen to notice that the ipod adapter plug was missing in my"NEW" car and he took one from another lot car for me. I should have checked the trunk too.

The two items I was missing cost me $12 from Tischer.

I could be mistaken, but I think the iPod cable is now something you have to buy.

You didn't get shafted, they just do not come with them anymore. There really is no need for them anyhow as you are not going to be working on anything with them. The only one you absolutely need and should have is the tow hook.

If you get the iPod package the car should come with the cable. That cable IS expensive to replace, so don't lose it.
