I'm given a loaner X3 30i and it has a hitch for my bike rack and CarPlay so I'm reasonably satisfied but damn, 1 month? They literally can't put it back together because the bad part fell apart.

I'll be reaching out to BMWFS to get some sort of credit on lease payment. I'm not needing to raise a stink over it but it sucks. Anyone else had their baby stuck waiting on parts like this?

If anyone would help with lease payment it would be your dealer. My car went into shop at 6 weeks old, and spent the next 3.5 months there waiting for parts from Germany. My dealer covered those months payment. All BMWFS might do is defer one or two months.
My time in loaner was less than two weeks and loaner was ok so I'm not concerned. If it had gone a month I would make a claim.
