I got the car back, the dealership replaced a floor mat seat sensor and possibly something else - im not sure. In the process they found my key fob so all is well

i paid 50 dollars out of pocket for the job - the rest was covered under my extended warranty...which ends in a year =\

Well it turned out to be not so bad and that is good.

I wonder what a floor mat seat sensor is?

He probably had an even better laugh after the customer paid for that mythical "floor mat seat sensor". Did they just make that up?

Not possible. Everyone knows that there is zero space between the back of the front seat and the front of the rear seat. LOL.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

Actually (I think this is true); all of the European Delivery vehicles must be sold/equipped with a First Aid kit. In the E93, it's under the passenger seat.

For the E90/92, on Euro Deliv, it's in the trunk/boot.

So, in the event of a rollover, if I'm still alive, I can easily reach the First Aid Kit. In an E90/92, a driver would need to cut through the rear seat to reach it.

Use your other key to go to the dealer and buy another key.

I once lost my phone in the passenger under seat air vent of my E46 M3. Had to remove the seat, part of the carpet, and had to cut into a portion of the air vent. Took me about three hours of work. Such a pain in the ass.

You're wrong, the mat sensors notifies the dealer how to locate your lost key fob under your seat

It would be easier since it's a convertible to just turn the car upside down and shake it free.

When you reach over for the first aid kit, after said rollover, don't forget to bandage up your ego.

That's first on the triage sheet!
