hmmm yeah that's like the time when I had an M5 come in with 3k miles and a smoked clutch. Guy swore up and down that he hadn't been beatin the crap out of the car. So after lengthy verbal lashings to the regional BMW rep and the Service manager, BMW and the dealership split the cost and charged the customer nothing (and I got rooked on the labor). Three months later the guy comes back, this time with 6.5k on the odometer, smoke bellowing from underneath the car, bald rear tires and clutch is practically welded to the flywheel and won't disengage. I raise the car up and have the trans out in 20 minutes. Guy hadn't even driven off in his rental yet. I call the service manager and the customer back to the shop. He went through his routine again and threw a fit. After explaining to him how a clutch works and that his brand new tires were mysteriously bald, he paid for his rental.. got in the car and left. Came back the next day with a brand new clutch and a fat bill.
don't know why I felt compelled to share that. Kinda funny though
