johnbmw6: It is the same Matthew Bacon who is supposed to call me and/or get in touch with the supplying dealer on Monday. So I am told.
NISFAN: Just because other's are in the same boat, does not make it right. So all those with rusty seat bases, baggy seats, mis-matched rear bumper paintwork, faulty navs etc, should grin and bear it as they are thus part of the crowd? I personally don't agree with the suitability of such an approach.
Spacebug: It is not an outcome I really want as the F30 is a great car to propel but it needs to shape-up to its premium aspirations. I feel I am being reasonable in expecting a better standard of workmanship.
davyk31: Swapping seats would be too easy and too customer focused a solution. My primary mistake was I took the car to the local dealership who really did not want to get involved at the outset. I should have just shipped the car back to the supplying dealer who seem to be more customer focused.
