No flaming here. That's what I was looking for, just some honest opinions. I'm definitely pissed about all the days I had to take off, and I see your point about the airfare reimbursement, but in my mind I think the airfare shouldn't even be considered because I almost feel they're obligated to get me back down there since I went on my own cost the first time. I'm just trying to see what most people would consider fair, I'm not trying be greedy and I hope I don't come across like that. I'm in the customer service industry and I know I normally do everything possible to make a customer happy when its a issue like mine. I wasn't making anything up and trying to create a issue when there wasn't. I was even thanked by the PCD people for handling my self completely calm and rational. I never once blew up or even blamed or yelled at anyone, which they said most people would have. When it was suggested to me that I ask for the M school nobody thought it would even be an issue, I wasn't asking for airfare down there. Just the school, I mean I know sometimes they even throw that in when you buy one of the other M cars, so I didn't think it would even be an issue. I think I can even get a discount with my BMWCCA membership on M school so I don't think the it even costs that much more. When the first offerend the 1k credit in BMW performance parts I said no, and they asked how much would I need in credits so I assume they were willing to definitely give me more than 1k. Anyway it's not really the amount it's more the principal.
