Not a good day at the dealer

Took my car in this morning for it's 1,200 mile service, dreams of redline dancing in my head. I also asked to get the alarm coded. Later in the morning my SA called to say my replacement inside door panel (original was wavy) had come in and they would do that, also.

Well, the door panel turned out to be missing a braket related to the Enhanced Premium Sound, or something, and the one on the original panel was glued on. They had to put my original door panel back on.

Then I go to pick the car up at 5:00, after 9 hours there, and they said they had run into a problem with the alarm programming. The different modules have to be recoded, and the computer was telling them to replace all of them. They spent 3 hours on it and had not solved it.

So, I'm driving a base 335i auto tonight (don't like it at all, but it's got power). I was so disappointed, I forgot to ask if they got the basic service done!
