I was able to return mine to the other BMW dealer in Las Vegas! Absolutely no problems, took five minutes and got no hits for damage (even though I did have about 1" of curb rash on two wheels).

Very nice! I called on Monday and got the offer of lease extension and the quote that "only the originating dealer is required to take the vehicle back."

I agree. If you just drop the car off locally in the parking lot, I could see the infamous "scratches under the bumper" or other reaches into vehicle damage compounding into a $2000 lease return bill.

Just to let you know, that's not exactly right. In the past, we have been able to return our cars to any BMW dealer but that was strictly a courtesy. According to the lease paperwork (at least the...

Where are we returning our leased vehicles to?

I just picked up my car from service and had a pre lease turn in inspection that was a complete joke (she measured the tires and opened the front door - about 2 minutes total). When I asked her about...

Check with the California DMV, I believe they are offering 60 day extensions for registrations. So if you have a situation where an office visit is required they'll cut you a break for 60 days.

So asking a salesman to give us a quote on a car that is sitting on their lot and then deciding the car is not the right one after all is wrong? Is that not what their job is by definition?

Interesting thread. I know my car was a dealer swap. I saw what I wanted (or so I thought) in a 430i at Pacific BMW and got a price from them. At the last minute I changed my mind and canceled the...

Just a guess, but I'm not sure it's a hardware issue - do you have a all-access or comparable subscription that includes all the channels? If you have gotten a "deal" from Sirius, like many of us...
