So what exactly are you expecting BMW NA to do for're just upset the dealer didnt catch the puncture, oh well shit happens...ANY tire shop could have caught it for $10 ..not even sure who takes their car to a "dealer" for a tmps light or tire issue? absurd

You, yourself should have monitored the tire once you knew you had a potential leak

I swear..doesnt anyone take responsibility for basic shit anymore? wow
That's a little harsh, but I tend to agree. There are a lot of people out there that have little interest in wrenching on their cars or doing maintenance, but filling gas, checking oil and inflating your tires are basic necessities.

That said, the dealer should have inspected the tire and at least notified the OP of the puncture.
