More news...

Here are the details and pix. Car arrived at the dealer last night. As they went to fill it with gas today, we noted the iDrive was non-functional. It does not accept any inputs. The radio is stuck on NPR (of all things), the split screen display shows the highest-level options on the left and the Nav data on the right, but you can not select other screens. There were "low battery" and "partial electrical systems" faults. The shop tried a battery charge and systems re-boot. The error messages cleared, but the ! in a triangle still appears and still no iDrive inputs possible.

Jonathan's remote diagnosis: residual bad karma from failing to follow the 12-hour rule in June and from impossing on him to post photos.

Partial solution one: posting photos now...
  1. The wagon with the front plate.
  2. Close up of the Umwelt Zone sticker. The Swiss vignette was also still there.
  3. Wagon with friendly service person, heading back to the shop.

Partial solution two: car returns to the shop on Monday.

Ugh! So close yet so far :-(

It's a gorgeous car, though. Here's to hoping they get it all worked out quickly.

Just got the call from my dealer! 4pm pick up time today. Many pictures will be taken.

This quickly turned into the longest two and a half hours of my life.
