But dealership Sir asked how he could help you....
You ignored his question tsk tsk tsk
Maybe he thought you were trying to teach him manners that he did not have or want😜
You should of said yes, you can help me, by saying good morning!

Yeah i'm really wondering what the point of this whole thread is. Personally I've only ever had good experience there but hey..

Whats interesting is that your rendition of events cant depict tone. His "how can I help you" could have sounded a lot more pleasant than How CAN I HELP you... its all semantics and quite frankly a load of rubbish. So should we all now boycott them cos you had your feathers ruffled ??

Tell you what also amazes me is the amount of absolute crap that okes post on forums. - The most inane drivel questions possible. I mean are people now incapable of making a decision without posting in on a forum?

No - I don't need a hug LOL  :pot: :pot: :pot: ;D ;D ;D

Ek glo as hy so daar behandel was sou hy nooit weer 'n voet in die dealership gesit het nie.

Heard true tale of Jim Redman and Mike Hailwood. Story goes, they went into a RR dealership in Paris dressed in their leathers and was completely ignored.  They then went over the road to the Citroen dealership and bought two Citroen/Maserati SM's. RR was not impressed with the dealership.

To those who sympathize with me and understood issue I had with dealership :thumleft:. To those who believe that threads like these and events like these should not be brought to the public because its insane drivel or stupid, yes you are also entitled to your opinions but for some of us who feel aggrieved, mis treated unjustly we will continue to post stories like these, we also have the right to do so :thumleft:

I think you did exactly the right thing by bringing your poor experience to the forum as this creates underlying pressures to suppliers/dealers to keep bad/good service in check.I see no reason for a person/forum member to say this thread is futile.I think forums give us all the opportunity to voice our opinions good/bad/weak whatever.Members who think this is all a waste of time why even enrole as a member in the first place.

My opinion now/5 c worth

Now people what you do not know and the man that started this thread will not say it, because he is a gentlemen and a all round chap .... he is a black man .... sorry Why Me, I have taken the liberty after trying hard to get people to understand.
This just shows the level of arrogance from the BMW dealerships. The co-owner made the assumption that you were some "rif raff" off the road coming for a free muffin.
Never assume anything about peoples appearance, as I said " The customer is not always right, BUT he is the customer", what do you think the chances are that he will spend his money with any BMW dealership?
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.
