I gave 157.90 to get my book stamped at 6800 miles.
That was also changing my FD with my banned oil name product 70w80. It was pretty good looking for 3700 miles on it and of course the paste on the plug, but no chunks.
Dave who works on my bike said not to bother changing the tranny as it would come out new with only 3700 on it. I took his advice.
The computer makes my GS911 look like a toy. He spent some time showing me ALL the diagnostics it CAN preform. Quit a sophisticated and capable diagnostic tool!
In general conversation I asked about the 2010 LT. He grinned and said he was told " it will be a five cylinder diesel"
Also speaking with Charlie who is the Service Manager and is second to none, about the lose of dealers. He got a bit pissed, not at me but BMW saying they wanted to tear his building down, he had to put up a sign that would cost in the $20,000.00 range, and he WILL not sign their agreement. Said they have had the brand for so many years and then they tried to force him to sign it and he wont. His quote "when they pry my cold dead hands from around the pen"
On the Husqavana buy out, they thought is was strategic to growing the BMW network on that buy out. Makes sense, and good news if it is the strategy.
I have preached the supporting of a dealer and will continue to do my part. I do not like to spend money on things I can do myself way cheaper. In this case I swallow, ride the hr and 15 mins each way, and don't have a bad taste in my mouth at all.
The service, information, banter, and knowing I am spending money on my bikes future is worth it to have my advocate in a bad situation with BMW.
So that was my morning, and it did beat a day at the office all to hell.
