E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

why would the dealership have charges filed against employees for test driving a car?

...cause they made a you-tube video of them revving a brand new car to redline on city streets that was sold to customer who became very pissed off when he saw the video...

And to make matters worse, Glendale BMW already has a bad reputation of bad customer service, so I could imagine this is going to shun people away even more so from Glendale BMW.

I would take the $2K the dealership is offering and run. The car wasn't titled when the techs took their joyride which, by the way, did not appear in the video to be anywhere near abusive. Having a lawyer sue the dealer for $10K seems baseless to me.
