Dealership only go by computer base service. Not until computer says it's due for service or if nothing is wrong with car they are not going to do anything with your car

We could blather on for 200 pages with problems with the 2009 X5...NONE of this would do you any good.

Here is the only thing that works: Identify REAL problems- a leaking seal, a gasket that is weeping, a noise, a failed switch, noise while braking, etc, etc,... Make sure your complaint is placed on the work order.

BMW dealers WILL NOT find problems in cars based in "oh, could you check XYZ? My warranty will expire soon and I i hear the XYZ has failed before and is a common problem". They wont even LOOK at something unless it has an appropriate symptom you can verbalize and they can confirm.

Perosnally I just put the car up on the rack, insect everything- any cracked rubber, noises, hoses, leaks, electronic glitches all get mentioned inthe work order.
