Dealer PDI (Pacific BMW, CA) - 1M Joy Ride FAIL!

I've already posted this in another thread, but I thought it was so bad, it needed a thread of it's own.

Apparently the guy driving is technician at a BMW dealership.

He decided to take the car out and I quote "for a spin after doing a pdi and checkin the car for any faults... apperently this car has no problems".

If this were my car I'd be pretty mad!!

too bad the video wasn't geotagged like a cell phone picture -- we could figure out what dealership.

I would fire their asses with extreme prejudice.

Someone should bake sure this video gets to BMW NA.

Please will somebody in the US report this to BMWNA, so that this little scumbag gets fired!

Just in case this video gets mysteriously taken down, I've saved the original source video file to my machine, so if anybody needs it let me know!

The fact it says "Sold" in the window would indicate it's a customer car on PDI. Worst of all he's 'ragging' it from cold.

Other videos on his channel would intimate he's also done it to a customer M5!

So much for "break in period" Sport mode + WOT + above 5.5k rpm...

I'd be pissed if I found out that happened to my car...

BMW NA prob. couldn't do much since he is not an employee of theirs. What we need to do is track down the dealership he works for. Def. looks like SoCal.

glad I do not have NAV, not mine... When I took delivery of my 135i it was a demoed car with a hundred or so miles already. When I took delivery of my 1M it had a mere 4 on the odometer. Awesome!

Not something that I would like to find out about my car. How is there no consideration for the car or owner for that matter...

Link just redirects back to their homepage... I presume it was the car, but they might have taken it down since then.

Definitely works at Pacific BMW in Glendale. If you watch his other E60 video on the same street you can see them cross S. Glendale on E. Windsor. So now you have two reasons to never do business with Pacific BMW - They try to gouge you $90k for a 1M, and their techs will go on a joy ride with it first.

You did good kid... i was trying to pick up markers in this video but he did a good job of hiding them.. never thought to check the m5 vid.

good detective work ...
