    My factory warranty is almost up. What should i have them check?

    before my car got hit, i already had an appointment to go for an oil change and to have them replace my shifter because the paint is chipping and also to fix a loose piece of wood trim.
    i had to cancel that appointment.

    today, i got this notice that my warranty is about to expire. i may as well get the works. btw, i dont want to remove my JB3 and DCI if i dont have to and i also dont want to use my scan tool.

    I have an extended warranty, but then its $50 per visit.

    what else should i have them do?

    wipers....

    yep. they changed the front pads.

    they found an oil leak from a bad valve gasket. thats why ive been losing oil but haven't seen any spots in the driveway. it soaked my spark plug and they replaced all that.
    also a loose piece of wood trim, my shifter knob, wiper blades, brake fluid, and i have to go back for a recall about a software upgrade.
    that means i have to uninstall my JB3. i fessed up to the sales rep about that. he seemed cool and im glad i told him because he gave me some good info.
    BMW's stealership is a good experience when you dont get a bill.
    great coffee, bottled water and lots of good snacks. plenty of nice women around. tons of cars to look at (at BMW of Sarasota, theres a Lambo dealership on the lot). and they just give out rental cars or even a ride home ( pick up also )or a ride to get lunch or something.

    just that all i have to do is remove the JB3 and i don't have to bother clearing the codes.
    which is great because i had to ship the scan tool i sold that day. also i'd have to get someone with a laptop to help me out.
    he mentioned something about my tune being wiped out if they did the upgrade while its in there.
    i don't understand that, but i have to uninstall it anyway.

    doesnt matter if jesus (allah, the almighty pitbull, nature, whoever your diety of choice) wakes up tomorrow and tells you its not necessary to clear your codes. rule #1, clear them codes!!! Click here to enlarge
    someone in service has a bad day, and sees a airmass manipulation code... doesnt matter what the service manager told you, youre screwed.

    it takes 30 seconds to clear the codes... if that's not worth your time and effort... Click here to enlarge

    Well said, don't trust any tech or advisor, they are not your friends.

    Im doing this service follow up survey
    I want to have a good reply to this final question;
    Does your BMW have any features that you feel could be improved by BMW Engineering and why?
    any suggestions?

    Tell them to pull their heads out of their $#@! regarding aftermarket tuning.

    Oh, and tell them they should be ashamed of themselves for not bringing the GTS to the USA.

    Tell them to design a high pressure $#@! pump once and for all.

    Tell them to $#@! themselves with it.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    If by software recall you mean the "implement lag here, de-tune turbos" fix, then yes, we do know of it.
