Dealer Bullsh1t check


Recommended Posts

Car is in the stealers for some minor things with one of the being that the car rolls a bit (2-3 inches) after the handbrake has been applied when on a slope.

Now Mr stealer says this is a 'quirk' and quite common for BMW's, but my bullsh1t radar thinks otherwise as I've never had this with any car I've ever driven, even other BMWs!

Thoughts please....

If it's an auto then I call bullsh*t.  The handbrake is fecked and the 3-4" roll is the car settling onto the parklock.


If it's manual and you're leaving it in gear, ditto.  


If it's manual and you're leaving it in neutral then I haven't a clue but have never encountered this on any of the BMWs I've owned.

It is VERY common in the X5 and X6 autos but not by 2-3 inches.


The X5 would move a good inch, maybe 1.5, the X6 does it by about 2cm.


It is usually on the cars before Stop/Start and remote ignition, where the key slots into the dash.
