 * I protested these additional "surprise" charges, as I've not encountered them at other BMW dealerships for the removal of a standard BMW skid plate and crash bar. The service manager agreed to refund $50. The final cost was $373.39.

** Engine popping on deceleration and going downhill. No improvement after service.
