And to think, this was one of the least problematic BMWs seen by the dealership that month.

So, in this case, the dealership is the porcupine?

The shiatty thing here is that if the vehicle is damaged enough to be totaled per normal procedure, he could get a check and walk away.

Instead, the dealer is probably going to "fix" the vehicle the cheapest way possible.

He should be forwarding that link to BMW, NA.

Years ago, I took my car to the shop for some repairs.  Riding the bus to pick it up later, guess what goes by?  My car.  They were using it to make parts runs and pick up lunch.  Added about 20 miles to the odometer.  I learned long ago to note the mileage when dropping off a car.

It sounds like this guy had issues before the garage's involvement. But I learned real early the worst drivers on the road were dealer and garage employees thinking they are NASCAR drivers, or just not giving a damn about the car. I treat them like a swerving drunk and stay away. Pull over and let them pass if need be.

When I was a kid, my family had a big conversion van for traveling. My dad took it to a skeevy little shop for sone basic maintenance. They called to say it was going to be a few days. A week after that, they called to say it was ready.

It had 800 miles added to the odometer.

Someone enjoyed their vacation, apparently.

Without looking it up, and I remember correctly, that scene was a big deal because it made Ferris Bueller's Day Off the only movie ever to allow the Star Wars theme outside other Star Wars movies.  I don't know if that held over the years or not (as it has been years since I heard this).

Last time I was at South was to buy a Honda 25 years ago.  That one experience was enough for me to flip them the bird every time I drove by any South dealership.  "Lost" the keys to my trade and did not find them until I raised some shiat

A coworker of mine was an electrical contractor. He took his bucket van into a place for service and when he got the vehicle back and they went to use the bucket it was damaged, almost beyond repair. So he goes back to the service place and sees that the overhang in front of their bays is severely damaged too. Of course he takes like a thousand pictures of everything. The manager flat out denies it, but thankfully it was a franchise operation so a phone call later and he's getting everything fixed for free someplace else. I wonder what franchise agreements allow in cases of fraud like this in terms of punishment. From the sounds of it they were more pissed off than my coworker.

This.

The resale on this car is totally farked now. Even if it gets "fixed", it will be worth 1/3rd of what it would usually be.

Then again in Miami-Dade and Broward, I'd bet that alot of cars in that area are on salvage titles.

Hehehehehe.... I agree. That said, as a former BMW owner, those things blow through light bulbs of all sorts (signal, headlight, fog light etc) faster than any car I've ever owned. Its the only car I ever owned that had dash board indicators for failed bulbs, so they knew there was a problem but apparently idiot lights were a cheaper fix.

nothing to see here, mr. customer. fifteen years ago , at a quality dealership still in business today, i entrusted my excellent work vehicle (small AWD wagon) to  their highly recommended service department for an unexpected major engine repair. squared the order with the service writer about expected cost and time to fix the motor. this vehicle had a unique configuration (RHD) that memorably set it apart from other cars of the same manufacturer which the dealership represented.
the day before the job was to be completed, i am told about additional mechanical issues which needed to be addressed, unrelated to original repair, for which i was
quoted a very fair price. the completion date was delayed several more days.
vehicle was ready on the day promised. service writer showed me some "extra" things they had done for free, including steam cleaning the motor, fixing latches etc.
brought the car in/out at @175000 miles. it ran great! almost like new. 200000 miles later sent it to junkman to be put down. couple weeks later talking with local car guys heard the story related to one of them by the service writer  regarding the RHD/AWD xxxxxx wagon that was test driven without motor oil and given a brand new engine.
well, alright then, i guess.

That happened to my grandpa's car decades ago. My aunt called for an update and they told her it was still being painted. They weren't going to tell him it had been in an accident during a test drive while it was in for service. Had they not slipped up during the call he would have had no idea they wrecked his car. He got a new car out of them as it was just a few weeks old.

Early 90's an acquaintance in his early 20's just got a brand new Chevy 1/2 ton Sport truck (think SS 454, but with a 350 instead).  Black with chrome wheels, sharp looking truck.  Guy goes to pick it up from the dealer, didn't notice that the driver's door was repainted badly at the dealer body shop.  Had them re-do it, and got a DustBuster, er- LuminaVan for a loaner. Who'da thunk LuniaVans can break tires loose with E-brake on?
