BMW really tried to stick it to me this time. This is the last BMW I will be buying.
LOL I wondered how it would be possible to destroy the diff and the subframe, basically the strongest parts of the car. My money would be on the axle shafts breaking first, and then of course you're stuck.

What dealership? You should name them for everyone's benefit. You know some other owner may have paid.
