I just called a GTA BMW dealer to get the info on bringing in a 07 335i
$350 + tax for admissibility letter
$500 + tax for recall clearance
$1800 for Canadian cluster + tax (approx. cost) WTF??
I questioned why the cluster change and the guy really had no repsonse. I also mentioned that USA BMW's have dual readings already. He admitted himself that with I-Drive you can enable the DRL's, but kept insisting that the 'Canadian Government' telling BMW do this.
When i put it back on him and said that RIV told me that BMW is calling the shots, he went silent and said he's not sure.
As much as i would have hated to, i would have considered paying the $850 to bring a BMW here because the savings far outweight the cost, but adding the $1800 for the cluster is just down right dirty. Even with the cluster cost the US BMW is still much cheaper - but on principle alone i would never give in. Until this injustice is reversed, I will never look at a BMW again.
So officially the hell with BMW.
BMW - The Ultimate Gouging Company!
