    2 guys smash up an M6...

    Two Guys Smash Up A BMW M6 With A Sledge Hammer And An Axe

    Click here to enlarge
    Two men smashed up a BMW M6 in front of the Frankfurt motor show. The reason? According to the German video’s description, the pair were protesting about BMW’s apparent failure to fix technical problems that have plagued this M6 model.The car you see in the video was bought in Italy in 2008 for 120,000 euros and has been in the workshop 10 times, according to the YouTube description. Despite the many technical issues with the car in question, neither the Italian dealer, nor the German manufacturer is taking responsibility for the issues. Should the owner choose to open a civil case, the process would take between seven and ten years, the description tells us further.
    Certainly sounds like an incredibly frustrating case of poor BMW customer service. and looks like the owner needed this very public release…

    WOW --- Only 10 times at the dealers and these guys are smashing an 120k Euro ($160k) M6?! Good thing they don't have an N54 powered car, they'd need some dynamite to illustrate their frustrations

    When you take a sledgehammer to your BMW M6 in protest of mechanical issues with the vehicle, make sure it is not leased

    Taking a sledgehammer to a car in public in protest of mechanical issues with the vehicle is definitely one way to get attention. An issue with that approach though is if one were to do that with a car that does not even actually belong to them. Mechanical failures certainly can be extremely frustrating and anyone here who has dealt with trying to get BMW to fix a persistent mechanical problem knows how difficult BMW can be but blatant stupidity is an even bigger issue.

    The video below circulated the internet last week as the owner of the M6 decided to use the Frankfurt auto show to make his point publicly. Make his point he did but what was left out of the vast majority of reports was that the M6 is leased. The lease agreement requires that the car come back in good condition. So not only does it appear the man leased a lemon, it looks like he also just bought himself a squashed lemon. BMW's lawyers won't be losing this one especially considering the owner already refused BMW's offer to replace the clutch and flywheel that were causing him problems.

    Sometimes one reaches the limit of what can be done to please a customer.

    bmw left me with about 3-4 unresolved problems so i can understand why he does this.
    Money is not a problem for him so lease or not he will simply pay what is to pay. But its good to see some movement because BMW sometimes really isnt capable of solving problems.
    They normally just start swapping out things (on my costs) until they sometims find the problem... not really the way to do it in my opinion.

    It's just stupid and a complete waste of money. He could return the car back to BMW and let them deal with the mechanical problems. This now amounts to a large chunk of change out of his pocket. For what?

    Unbelievably stupid. Sell it...or give it to someone who would want it. Or just give it back to BMW...this is a waste and incredibly small-minded. Only idiots think that problems are solved by hitting things with hammers.

    Sometimes being heard isn't as important as what or how you say it.

    you're right violence is never a good solution, but to stand in a situatuation where normal logic is being defied and be well aware that the workshop is more or less indifferent to your opinion about the whole situation, I can understand, well a little bit, that the man resorts to turning primitive.

    I can certainly understand making a point out of frustration but I just wouldn't want to cost myself so much money in the process.

    I'd yell and scream on the forums.

    I think the guy was a little off on the whole thing to say the least. He was upset that the car shifted "harshly". SMG is not the smoothest thing in the world by default, and he should have realized this straight away. This is the problem when people buy a sports car and want a luxury car; they just buy the most expensive one the dealer has and hope for the best.
