No, they said they were all out. They could have cared less if I walked. My grand mother has been in Italy and I have her Jag XJ sport..

They have avis rent a car doing their loaners because they can not keep track of all the loaners going in and out.. My dealership has upgraded to 50 loaners and I still cant get one..

To be honest 50 isn't that many, my closest dealership has that many. I got to see the sheet of index of loaners. Almost all were 328i's. This is also a really small dealership.

Well to be honest, sounds like a mixture of three things. #1 Your dealer is a pile of shit. #2 Your car is one of those unfortunate lemons. #3 Your dealer is a pile of shit.

I would def speak to BMWNA about first obviously your shitty treatment at the dealership (lack of a solution for the car, and lack of loaner in obviously necessary situation), and second about having your car seriously looked at by another dealership possibly to see about either it being necessary to have your engine replaced or the car itself lemoned. If it really was just the injectors and they swapped em out, that shouldve been it, obviously theres something else goin on .

No problems either time I went in. Got a loaner without even asking, both times. Wish you the best of luck with the car. I would say to take it to the other dealership and have them look at it at this point.

thez99 definitely has a point. If it was the injectors, then it would have been fixed by now. From what I have read on here, do not tell them you are considering lemoning the car if you go down that path. (Has been discussed at length recently, just do a quick search)

I have done all of those things. I am working on one of the last items you mentioned up there but you are correct.

I would think they would try to do their best to fix the car no matter the outcome.
