Would be interesting to compare service USA - Australia. I guess you'd have to experience both to be able to comment.

Never ever had to pay for a loaner, regardless..

But then, I have always supported one dealer only... has its good and bad points..

If you want, the mechanic who actually works on your car comes to your home, leaves a loan car for the day, drives your car to the service dept and returns when finished. Your car is washed and the first service (15000km) is free. Imagine if we could get the same from BMW! Then again, I don't mind my dd Lexus being driven by someone else but as for the 135i, nope, can't stomach the thought!

same here when i was with LEXUS Parramatta, always been loyal with them as they have taken care with me and my car.
I kinda expected more from BMW especially when i bought the car from them and bought the Performance Power kit STAGE 1.
AT lease have a full tank of fuel and not 73km worth or fuel in the tank and the having to pay an extra $28

Never paid for a loan car with Trivett, including a couple of days with some lovely E92's and one unnamed E90

Never put fuel in them, always handed back with nearly nothing left. I also give my car to them with about 40k's till empty so they often give me my car with 1/4 of a tank

Don't let my case get to you. I brought them a lot of business in 2010. We're talking a fair amount for their parts department.. Upwards of, well, tens of thousands.

So I have my SA and he looks after me.

Trouble with that is that they become too comfortable in the knowledge they'll win your repeat business.

Altho' I've bought my last 3 porsches from the same salesman, at the same dealership, I make him work hard for the business. At the end of the day he is not my mate.

As for Trivett? Suck dogs balls, hard.

yeah im over it now aye, i loving the new rumble noise my car makes after the stage 1 kit installed.. i guess everyone operates differently.
i was just pissed off at the about the amount of fuel they gave me in the loan car pretty much stayed home all day because and didnt want to fill up for them if they are charging me a fuel levy.

Was a while ago (just after their renovation) but it was nothing too bad, just hadn't checked any of the things I had asked them to.
Would've preferred taking it elsewhere and not having to wait till next time to get those bits and pieces sorted
