I bought a Z4 back in April. The dealer agreed to fix a hood scratch and install a satellite radio. They didn't do either. BMW NA did everything short of cutting them off to help out, really, but I'm still having to take the dealer to court. My next nearest dealer is four hours away. First foul weather, I turn on the fog lights - presto one of them is hanging by one screw and bouncing around. Not an easy thing to check on a test drive or even a likely check on an overnight. I was trying to find a hard top - talked to someone at the dealer four hours away and they said sure, come pick one up. I schedule the pick up and they change their story, telling me they have to install the bits for the hardtop which I ordered off Pelican Parts and have already installed myself. They try to tell me they will have to 'check it' to make sure I did it right. Sure... Which as far as I was concerned they could haul it to the curb and I could put it on myself. The car is also developing the n52 lifter tick. I have the service bulletin, but if I take it in, I'm at this point a hundred percent sure they aren't going to fix it, or aren't going to be competent to fix it. Which makes a warranty pretty useless. So six months in I'm very sorry I bought the car, and not because the car is a problem, or I can't fix it, even the lifters; but because I cannot find parts or reasonable service anywhere. I actually bought the car because I have an old Infiniti sedan I have to order all parts for and install myself - and I really wanted to stop having to do car work. But I've basically doubled my problems. Somebody offer up something, some perspective, anything...?
