**Subframe Fix, Dealer Thread**
 
Hey guys i'm scared my subframe is gone *looks at sig* I thought it'd be useful to post up what dealers you've used to check your subframe & what mods you had on (if any) so people can figure out what dealers are more mod 'friendly' and what aren't.


Car:
Dealer:
Mods: (if any)
Comments:





I think this will greatly help other California Fanatics in figuring out which dealers they can go with.

Thanks,

_Raj

yea u really gotta fight them for a loaner...just get into a big argument with them bout it and they will give u one tell them u have no car to get to work and u cant afford missing work and that they have to give u a loaner.........and 1 to 2 months isnt that bad my car was gone for like 41/2 months thats cause they hadnt classified it a defect when i took it in like 3 years ago

Haha wow! I gave up on BMW of Riverside because I will be moving in the next couple weeks. I did, however, get in touch with Steve Thomas BMW in Camarillo(where I am moving) and they told me its pretty likely they will be giving me a loaner. They seem pretty great so far and told me I have nothing to worry about, all over the phone. I'm due next week to see how it goes.

00-BMW-328i 12-12-2009 07:52 PM

thats good news atleast there not like riverside lol

dragos 12-14-2009 06:46 PM

I'm seeing them weds. I'll let you guys know how they handle it.

aandrew325 12-14-2009 11:08 PM

steve thomas is a good dealership, overall good experiences with them. bought my e46 from them! did anyone try taking their car to center bmw in van nuys? im good friends with a service adviser there, always giving me "customer gratuity" on stuff.
