"My car is missing the proper suspension" sounds dramatic but it really only is "my car has all the suspension bits except they are to a different spec". Changing the spec on the individual parts and pieces probably costs very little to do as long as the relevant bits are already available in the supply / production chain.

On a somewhat related note, I am a bit irritated that my dealer refuses to give me the $390, and BMWNA refuses to intercede. As stated earlier, they seemed to indicate a willingness to swap out my car for one with the 704 suspension, but when I decided not to do that they claimed that that was the end of the story and the $390 refund was included in the overall purchase discount. Now certainly 4 C notes make no difference on a car costing 70 large, but it's the principle of the thing that bugs me...oh well, lesson learned, do the research before hitting the car lot!
When you receive your buyer's survey let them know you will be giving them zeros on the survey. I assure you that will get their attention.
