Thanks to BMW Portland

Bank 1 throttle body actuator was going out on my '08 M3 with 48,800 miles, but one year out of warranty. BMW Portland quoted it at $1,776, but when I picked it up today there was no charge. I had asked about Goodwill money and they covered it all! I was skeptical about Lithia's take over of Rasmussen, but seems they are maintaining the good level of service.

Wow, thats nice. I never used that dealership when I lived in Warrenton. I always used BMW of Bellevue or Kuni for all my BMW needs.

Now its BMW of Vista or Westbrook BMW.

2nd TBA in a week

Yesterday same symptoms as last week, but worse. Dropped it off at the dealer this morning and was diagnosed as failed TBA on Bank 2 (Bank 1 last week). What are the odds? Car was done in 5 hours and again, no charge. Thanks again BMW of Portland.

I think it's BMW NA's decision to approve a Goodwill repair, not the dealer, and judging by your ownership history and having the new M4 on order, they decided to take care of you

They said BMWNA was covering parts and they covered the labor.
