I am new to this forum. I live in Miami Beach and I am on my third BMW. I bought a 2004 about 15 months ago. I noticed the car was not driving properly but everyone told me that i was crazy. They said it is a brand new car so it is fine. I decided to take it to be serviced. One of my complaints was that the car seemed to be hesitant and the transition from gears was not smooth. Well sure enough they found out that my car went into transportation mode. They told me that it did not do any damage to the engine but I was convinced it did. Another problem with the car was the oil light would come on after I shut off the car. I took it back and they checked the oil and said it was fine, it was probably just the computer. Well sure enough it continued to happen. I was coming home from ORlando and the entire computer system died. At this point I was so fed up. I decided to call the dealership where I bought the car. I spoke to the manager whom i have spoken to before regarding these problems. I told him how upset I was and that i just wanted to get rid of the car and never get into another BMW. He asked for my phone number and said he would call me back. He said he was going to help me out. Well he called back and asked me how I feel about the car if I did not have the problems. I told him I guess I would be happy. He asked me how i would feel if he gave me a new 2005. I asked him what the catch was, was I going to have to put over any money. HE said no. To make a long story short I got my 2005 325i last week. This morning was I got to work and turned off the car the OIL light stayed on. Does anyone else have these problems. PLEASE HELP!!
