I'm there at least twice/month- another perk.
Glad to hear BMW service centers are usable by any warrantied BMW owner for both warranty work and routine service. I would prefer a local dealer, hopefully my emails and call going unasnwered has a reasonable explanation and I will hear from them soon.
I remember when buying my last car the dealer in town trying to dissuade me from going out of town saying something like he wouldn't give up local for less than a five hundred dollar savings, too bad the dealer 40 minutes away that I had bought my previous car from saved me over a grand compared to that guy's deal.
