I've been looking forward to hearing something of what you learned during the August 7 training event....

What changes are coming in '09 for the 1-Series, and did you learn anything about pricing?

Got some serious hands on time with the new idrive, click below link:

No other scheduled (or mentioned) changes for the 1 series. We spent most of the time learning about the diesels (awesome), the changes to the 3 series (also awesome), & then of course the idrive (ridiculously awesome). Nothing yet on pricing, they were extremely tight lipped

Just something I pulled out of that presentation:
http://qacds.bmwuniversity.com/bmwlm...ent/index.html

The 09 model specs for the 1er still aren't listed while the 3er and 7er are.

Does anyone have the convertible invoice prices?

I have not been able to find invoice prices on the convertibles. The sticky does not have a link to them. Can anyone provide me with the ED and US invoice price on the 128 and 135 convertibles? Edmunds has the US invoice prices on the 128 at $30,450 and the 135 at $35,970. Are these correct?

Any idea of ED invoice?

Thanks in advance.

Do you know if the new iDrive will be available on ALL, even the early weeks of production for MY 2009's or is it a slow start implementation for the 1'er meaning it won't be available and the old iDrive will be supplied on September Build cars?

I have a quality of materials question. I ordered light burl walnut. What I got was not burl but a very plain piece of wood that looks like 1970's paneling. It's far from attractive and is not anywhere near the wood I've seen on any other BMW. Do I have any recourse? My CA is not being any help.

Unfortunately you don't have many options. Really the best you can do is order a retro-fit kit of one of the other trims & install those. It's gonna cost you some money obviously, I would go for the carbon fiber personally. Clearly the dealer is not obligated to do anything, but perhaps they could "goodwill" some of the cost.

Unhappy

I ordered my car via military sales, had a rather unpleasant experience with my CA, and among other things that went wrong, my car was delivered at the port with a 3 series owners manual. Is there anyway I can get a proper 1 series owners manual as my CA is unresponsive? Can I go down to a local dealership and ask for one?

You would be angry too, if your car had 70 miles on it instead of less than 5, you had to pay an additional $800+ bucks in import duties that should have been covered, and it shipping weeks late. Among many other smaller things like having a 3 series owners manual, and being filthy when picked up at the port.

Dealers:

What would your dealership do in this situation.

You have a customer call in on a Sunday saying that their 2008 135i under the BMW Maintenence Program has a Service Engine Soon light. Like I said it is Sunday so Service Department is closed.

Would you be able to have the customer drop off the car and get a loaner? Or can only the service department deal out loaners? Also, are loaners part of the Warranty or do some dealerships not offer loaners?

I am not asking this as if I am expecting it. I was just curious to see what the norm is. I have had issues with this dealership before and I just want to see if they did not go the extra mile for me in particular.

History of this dealership for me:

I ordered a 135i. They told me I had an allocation. I did not have one after waiting 6 weeks with my deposit down. Figured this out and took my business elsewhere. Problem is I have to go to this dealership for service since it is the only one within 150 miles of me.

Thanks for any input,

Brandon:w00t:

If one of my customers called in when service was closed & needed a car, I would get them a loaner if there was one here. If I take the call for someone elses client, I'm not giving a car, unless it is something pretty serious. Since the cars are typically pre-scheduled out to service clients, we can catch some heat for putting out their loaners. I'm not catching heat for some elses clients :biggrin:

As the nearest dealer to me is 1.5hr+ away, I'll go ahead and give them a call and see what they say before making the drive down. Thanks for your help.
