where the hell do I manage to find these weirdo's?
If you had one of these new phones, you could setup his number to go strait into your VM. But you have an antique phone, right?

Si Senor. However, I was told that the error code that the car gave meant that it was user error as to why the battery died out...meaning that while I was washing and waxing the car this past weekend I must have left a light on or something like that and I was the one that killed it. Therefore not under warranty.

Update: Eating a lean cuisine meal for lunch.

Call or IM your dealerships Sales team! They should give you a test drive no problem. Plus they want to seperate you from your $ and your 335 with a NEW battery.

BTW, did you ask for a BMWCCA discount on the battery? Atleast get 10-15% off.

Wasn't I saying this the other day? This GIF would have been great.

I would imagine they'll let me take a test drive. I mean how do I know I want to buy one unless a drive one?

I did not ask about the BMWCCA discount. I will though when I get there though. I always forget I have that damn card in my wallet. Thanks for the reminder!

Update: Nada.

And how much is dealer price for battery replacement these days? Did they also need to recode the car?

Yeah, they did the "reprogramming". If that is even necessary.

It was a total of $350, this before hopefully a nice BMWCCA discount that bkmk5 reminded me of.

Update: Outta here in a little less than 2 hours.

That's actually less than I expected... It IS still crazy high though. They make these new cars in a way that you can't just replace the battery yourself.

They probably got that brilliant money making idea from Apple and its iPhone....
