Yeah I busted their balls about it, but they're by far the most convenient dealer for in-warranty service. Apparently the tech said something about the oil level not being reset for the initial post run in test, so they had to do it twice. So, they're either simply thorough and doing a good job, or they're rat-ass bastards. The truth is probably somewhere in between.
What's done is now done, I just have to be crystal about my expectations of "test" drives on future services. For that matter, anyone who visits BMW of Encinitas should make such a request explicit and known up front.
