Yes, they are waiting to get some other cars in and they will accommodate my request. Hopefully a F10 535 or at least an E90 335.

Or are they worried about additional damage to the car if you continue to drive it..?
I asked if I could take it back, and she said it's disassembled. I didn't bother asking if they could reassemble it - but maybe I should. 8 days is a while. I took it back the first time though, and noticed that the sound was getting worse. I worry about driving it around like that. My fear is the steering could lock up on me while I'm driving around a corner or something - like the guy with the canyon road story.
