Thanks for the replies
First, if he is a BMW military sales rep, he needs to hit the books on the 1200 mile service. I AGREE, BUT I GUESS HE WASN'T INFORMED ABOUT THE CHANGE ON THE M3 BECAUSE NO ONE HAS TAKEN DELIVERY HERE YET.
Also, what I think he is trying to say about the warranty is once you are back and register your M3 with BMWNA, you will have the rest of the NA warranty with services included. While you are overseas, you will not receive "free" services ... I paid for my 1200 mile inspection and it is a big chunk of change. I agree, I am just concerned about ensuring the vehicle is maintained properly. If Service Rep's in the US are jacking up transmissions, I am scared at what will happen here in Korea. I plan to be well informed and specify exactly I want done at the service, by the numbers, to the T so to speak.
