Rough last week on my car

Just wanted to share my story.

I have had my first bimmer for under a month. This has been my last week:

1) I got a nice nail in my run flat. Got tire and rim warranty 2 days before, luckily - so that was fixed no problem

2) then on way up to cottage a piece of a tire flew across the highway and gave me a nice little dent under my drivers side door - awesome!

3) on the way back from the cottage 4 days later I had a nice stone fly across the highway, hit my windshield and 5 mins later a nice crack started to spread rapidly down my sight line...

They gave me a 2011 328i and I HATE IT. No means to disrespect current e90 owners but man driving this car makes me appreciate my f30 so so so so so much.

Thanks for listening

Oh man, you're in Ontario...I guess I need to be more careful!!!

Thankfully you're pretty light about it. Good luck and hope you get your car soon.

I feel your pain. Got my windshield replaced after driving my car for 9 days. Had less than 1000 miles on it. They also gave me a 2011 328i, I didnt like it either. Like you say no disrespect but I love my F30. Hope you get it back soon.

Did it happen on the 400?

Out of curiosity, what dealer do you go through? Edit: Just remember you got yours from Budds (saw the pics in another thread)

Bad luck all around... sorry to hear.

The cottage is cursed and doesn't want you going there. Call Ghostbusters.

hahaha. Thanks guys. The part tire was on the 400 and the stone was on HWY 11.

Turns out there was a mix up with the glass. not sure on whose end. But they sent the wrong glass or its being sent via ground from Vancouver. So it could be another 2 business days.

I'm off to the cottage again today... might get my car back for the drive, or just keep the loaner (save the kms)

Yikes Sorry to hear about that man.
I was "cursed" with all my previous cars needing a windshield replaced within 3months of delivery due to stones. The one constant was my plates... So when I got the bimmer I made sure I got new plates

Hope you get your car back soon.
