Agree with ase2dais...Boeing cut 5k jobs this week and even Microsoft cut about the same. Read an article online that said most car dealers are dying out there domestic ones more than the luxury brands like BMW but they too are not immune. So as dealers try to cut cost to surivive...I see the free loaner as one of the 1st to go like was said earlier especially if NOT a major service and if you didn't buy the car from them unless you're like a VERY loyal customer otherwise.

Also am curious how long the BMW "free" maintenance plan will last if the economy worsens and sales slump anymore in the US. Maybe that will be the next thing to get reduced or go?
