A few light scuffs that can be buffed out at home is just a tad different than having to have something on the car repainted. Your arguement suggests comparing apples and oranges.Blue said:It wasn't fraud, wasn't illegal, hell....it wasn't even unfair. And yes, you are whining. Whining like a biatch in heat. The GM showed some bad customer service with joe and maybe the GM wasn't playing fair, but then again we don't really know how that all played out, do we?
Way back when, I purchased a new 1990 Ford Probe. It had light but very noticeable scratches all over the hood, roof, and rear deck from the transporter truck's tie-down chains. When I asked the dealer what was up, he said, "Not a big deal, happens all the time, we'll get it buffed out for you." I told him not to worry about it - I buffed them out myself in return for a manual sunroof installed at dealer's cost. Now, instead of working with the dealer to my advantage, maybe I should have started pissing & moaning about fraud and whipped out my dicitonary. But that probably would have gotten me a big "SHUT THE FUKC UP YOU MORON" from the dealer, which, incidentally, is what the majority of people on this thread are saying to you.
since this thread is just out of control imo are we suggesting that he get a new car or a 4 million dollar settlement? what EXACTLY does he deserve? i'd say he deserves a new paint job on the dealer's tab and maybe a free CD changer or an alarm for his trouble...and they don't even owe him a free gift cause what happened was not illegal, fraud, abuse, etc.!!!bimmerguy2006 said:A few light scuffs that can be buffed out at home is just a tad different than having to have something on the car repainted.

I think he should get his bumper repainted flawlessly.....bender73 said:since this thread is just out of control imo are we suggesting that he get a new car or a 4 million dollar settlement? what EXACTLY does he deserve? i'd say he deserves a new paint job on the dealer's tab and maybe a free CD changer or an alarm for his trouble...and they don't even owe him a free gift cause what happened was not illegal, fraud, abuse, etc.!!!

that pic is awesome....it just looks all quiet & peaceful sitting there, yet mean as hell at the same time.
Glad that you solved your bumper/repaint/fraud/no warranty/BBB/lawsuit/upset/compensation/depreciating asset/mumbo jumbo problem to your satisfaction. :thumbup:joedaddy said:A little update guys...
I dropped off the car again at Crevier today and this time a REAL BMW advisor assisted me...Name was Jason...I told him the problems and also mentioned the paint...since the Field Rep was here today, he and the service manager felt bad for me and went ahead to "OK" the repaint...Sad thing is that I have to leave my car there for 3 days...so I'll leave it next week...well..no loaner for me...cuz I bought it from Shelly...
My next BMW will DEFINITELY will be bought from Crevier...
This is the best advice i saw i was in a simular situation with my ACURA Legend Coupe.elowe said:What I would do is go to the dealer you bought the car from, and ask nicely to see the paperwork on that car that details the damage. I would make it sound like you were concerned that there was anything more than just a scratched bumper. Maybe you are concerned that the damage was caused by a collision at the dock or in transport, so you want to verify that the damage is only minor in nature. Ask for full disclosure of damage for your own piece of mind, and get copies of everything, including where the repaint was done. Try not to assign fault to anyone while talking to them, because it's too late for that already. You just want to get it fixed and for them to cooperate, and accusing them is not going to help.
Then go to BMWNA, and talk to them about covering this under warranty at another dealer. If they accuse you of trying to cover up your own damage, then fax them copies of the paperwork you got from the dealer proving that the dealership knew of the damages before you ever got the car. Take pictures of the flaking paint as well and send those in if you can. If the GM admits in paper that there was some prior damage, and the car had been previously repaired by the dealer outside of the normal BMW facilities, then BMW should try to help you out.
