So he insisted and told all his buddies how smart he was while the dealer / shop heard his condescending tone and argument and just said "f**k it, its not worth arguing, if this idiot wants his car screwed up, he'll get what he wants".

So the car then doesn't handle right, he gets into an accident and turns around and sues the dealer, BMWNA and everyone else he can sue, "because he is right in thinking that its our problem to save him from his own stupidity".........

This is why I feel bad for BMWNA, because they have to appease knowledgeable enthusiasts while implementing a CYA policy to account for all of the idiots out there that need to be told things like "the car can't not be used to off-road" or "you must disengage parking break to drive the car" or "the car can not skirt the laws of physics". Really do feel bad for them.....

Cheers,

Hilarious. I was airing up my tires on my VFR800 last Sunday, and I was talking to the shop foreman. He pointed to the old codger ahead of me and said, "I had to bring the shop air out for him because he wanted to put 60 pounds of air in his tires (old Jeep Cherokee). I said "that's way too much, those tires are rated for 45 pounds max." Shop guy said "Yep, but he wants to do it."

Humanity disappoints me every damn day. The bad part is that these clowns also get a vote.

Dealers have been known to do that

My sister had an E36 some years ago and when she brought it to the dealer it was returned with tires rotated front->back. I happen to be over that day and suggested they complain loudly to the clueless service manager.

My old 350z had bolts in the hub that prevented this shit. Guessing BMW thought that their owners were smarter.

There is no way that

#1 A legit shop could have done that
#2 He would be stupid enough to do that himself

Nice find!!
