In for the recall and safety inspection

I decided to go with a different dealer because this one sent me a $500 savings card towards future parts and accessories. When I called to schedule the appointment the rep was very pleasant and offered the loaner right away. At my regular dealership they want your car for 4 hours before giving loaners.

The SA showed me the part they would be replacing and gave me a cliff notes version of the process. I hate to say but it was all blah blah blah because I'd already read so much about it on the forums I tuned him out. But I was still appreciative of the effort to keep me informed. Unfortunately I was more concerned about the impending storm coming our way with the potential for hail. I wanted to know if Blackberry would be under shelter as she would have at home and work. Especially since the loaner would be receiving the same treatment. There were no assurances due to the amount of bays versus vehicles. I really hope she was safely tucked away.

Anywho...I left Blackberry and rolled out in a 2013 328i sedan with 5,080 miles. All I can say is.....not impressed. Yes it's a bit smoother ride but I would expect that with a 4 year age difference and no hardtop convertible gadgets weighing down the back end. I took it up on the highway to see what it could do. Good acceleration, took a few curves and some sudden stops...everything as it should be. Still I'm not impressed. If they wanted to entice me away from my precious E93 they have to do much better than that. The SA did mention the 4 series would be out in August and invited me back to check them out. I'll think about it. Right now I'm just ready to give this thing back and have Blackberry home safe and sound.

Oh yeah...not a fan of the "shut-off" feature at the red lights. I disabled that function on the next drive. I understand it is supposed to conserve fuel. Ok whatever.

Thanks! I love the barbera red. It's the only reason I haven't moved to a 335i or an M3.

They still haven't completed the work yet. I've called twice and no response from my SA. Getting a little frustrated right now. I actually like my car and do not prefer loaners.

Had my recall done today. If you stay and wait for the car, my deslership gives preference since you are there. Since they give loaners, they dont have a huge rush to give you your car back.
