The lesson learned: Do not enter a gunfight without bullets.

Right makes might. The buyer was initially right but once the seller stepped up to its mistake, it turned the tables by standing by what is right and doing the right thing. What company in the public light wouldn't? The buyer gave the seller an opening to turn the tables.

Who is it that has not been forthcoming? Which party is it that is typically the one that goes silent? Who was initially silent and is now happy to be in the spotlight? Which party is making the other party clear the facts rather than tell it themselves? Do they need to?

My only concern here had been that neither party had been forthcoming. Who is making us look bad now?

My favorite part of Maledon's post:

Husker would ask Mr. Tanisaka to go one step further and provide his truthful commentary on his agreement, or disagreement, with the statement of facts set forth above.

Husker will hold the vehicle in inventory for Mr. Tanisaka until the end of business Monday. For the sake of all involved, Husker BMW would like nothing more than to have this saga end with Mr. Tanisaka proudly driving his new E90 M3 and showcasing his “Husker BMW” plate frame throughout Southern California.
Lol. This is like a big FU in response to the public's jokes and remarks. It is basically saying: Ownage Reversal.

They are telling you to speak all you want, and it can as well. They are in the now right. Sure; go ahead, add a Husker license plate frame onto the car. Do it.

I'll just wait for dooma350 and his lawyer scott to post. I"m just getting the feeling that things will turn ugly.

BTW, why are the lawyers for both parties posting on a public internet forum? I haven't had much experience with lawyers, but it seems to me once something is pending litigation, don't the lawyers and clients clam up because anything they say publicly can be used in court?

I'm going to laugh if it turns out dooma can't end up securing financing...this whole deal has gotten really freaking weird.

Well, I've been following this from the beginning, and I can only hope that this turns out well.

I somehow don't see this being resolved today.

Well, as of this post, it's 5:40AM on the West Coast.

I expect we won't hear anything for a while as I'm sure all concerned parties are either still in bed or just rubbing the sleep out of their eyes.

+1 I don't know of ANY attorneys that would post on an internet forum in such a fashion. Their concerns should be protecting their clients' legal interests, not defending them on the internet. Weird is an understatement.

That's what I'm getting at, he basically gave that deal to a leasing company so now they get to buy it for below MSRP, they will rent that car to him for a few years and at the end they get to sell that car to him or someone else based on it's depreciation over MSRP. Which means they are the ones who reap the benefit of this deal.

I feel for you, man. Giving a response on this forum, argumentative, respectful, or insulting, is one thing. But to go out the way and start insulting someone, that is unacceptable. I do agree that the swinnish multitude has diluted out some of dooma's noble cause. Unfortunately, these people will do the inane things they do. Especially these E-thugs that can hide behind their keyboard. I have received rude remarks on the telephone, only to be rescinded in person.

As for the contention that you should not have posted their private info or IP address, they brought it upon themselves when they sent you insults outside of the forum. It is quite different if you had posted up the IP address of a legitimate poster from this thread.

We've passed the 900,000 mark. Once we get an update, I'm betting it's easily going to top 1,000,000.

Yeah, but this isn't a BMWFS lease. The residual his leasing source uses doesn't have to be the same that BMWFS uses.

First of all let me start out by showing you what I read on Fark to get me started on this thread "BMW of Lincoln Nebraska still withholding penis extension from eBay winner". I had no idea what to think I just wanted to find out what it was all about. The link took me to Autoblog.com, and as I read it I wanted to find out more, which brought me to here. Through reading the first few pages, and even now I 100% support Ken in getting the car. As people said in the beginning, if he would have said he made a "mistake" when bidding and didn't really want to buy the car, he still would have been held fully responsible for paying for it.

Now for the real reason I am posting here is because of posts form BMW M5 Power, as well as people's anger towards BMWNA for not stepping in. BMW M5 Power is completely right in HAG selling more cars now, because once you are in the door you are hooked and they can convince you that they are the right ones and Ken is making stuff up. The car dealer's job is to make you think that you are pulling one over on them, as apposed to vice versa. So people think they are getting great deals because of the whole ordeal, and HAG is selling more cars than they would normally.

Now for BMWNA. Maybe this will show that Big business does not care about the consumer, just your money. BMW doesn't care what you think about the individual dealer. They know you will buy their car because of the name not the greatness of the car. There could be a dog turd in the back of every BMW and people that want the car, no matter how overpriced it is because of the name, will still buy it. I'm not trying to knock any BMW owners, lord knows if I had the money I might have one, but if their product is lacking don't buy it.

This is only my opinion, burn me at the stake all you want.

The residual is based on MSRP and is not affected by the sales price. Any benefit from a low sales price will be had in the form of low lease payments. The leasing company isn't getting any significant benefit.

I seriously doubt that this mess will be resolved today.

The lease/sale won't be consumated.

Ken's M3 won't be loaded for shipment to CA.

At best, another extension. At worst, it all blows up.

We shall see

comments: why dont you quit being such a pussy ass bitch?

Sender IP: 71.8.38.XXX


Just to bring everybody up to speed, I posted some comments on M3 Post that are pro-dealer, this is the harassment I get because of it.

I am hiding some of these gentlemen's IP and tel# for privacy. (eventhough an IP address would not give give you their street address or any private information and the tel# is bad)

These two emails are in addition to a hate email I already posted. I am not mad or angry, I am just wondering what these bullies do for a living???

No Wonder BMW of Lincoln is pissed off, they are probably flooded with hate emails. There is some people out there with no decency or common sense!
