no im in FL. i approved the repair but havnt paid or picked it up yet. i asked for invoice 12pm friday and they said would take several hours to do so, they told me at 5pm still not ready and will be monday. taking them longer to create the invoice then to do the repair., makes me think something is up behind the scenes there. currently owe $2300 and scheduled to pickup monday via tow. was going to tow to indy, but thinking i am going to park it at my house. ill look into seeing if they will park it until settlement at dealer although i dont like the thought of that.Is yours a N26 registered in a PZEV state? If so valve cover and vanos should be covered for 15 years/150k miles. Do check that out as that can save $2300.
Your dealer offers TC fix for $2800($5500 - $2300 vanos and valve cover), the judgement call is whether BMWNA settles to cover this 100% without sliding scale or not.
If dealer is OK with free storage(with written agreement) of the car till settlement, then it may be a viable option, assuming there is alternate transportation.
