A few months ago, I leased a new BMW 328i. Last night I drove my car into an alley to park behind my friends house. When I got to the back, I had to wait for him to move his car up. I shut my car off for like 3 minutes to wait. When he moved the car, I tried to start my car but all the electronics just flickered and the car wouldn't start. It turns out one of my battery cells is defective!
After calling BMW road side assistance and waiting 3 hours for the "90 minute max" arrival time, the guy finally came. He tried to jump the car and after like 25 tries, it finally started. He told me to drive home and call them today if it didn't start in the morning so I could take it to the dealership. Sure enough, it didn't start. Another 2 hours of waiting for bmw road side. The guy couldn't jump start the car!! Another few hours of waiting and another guy comes and finally starts it (after the battery started smoking and getting really hot).
We took the car to the dealership. I noticed that after the jump, the engine was making clicking and knocking noises The dealership said they can't check it today so I had to leave it there overnight. I said fine, give me a rental. They told me they are all out of rentals. The only thing they had left was a stinking soccer mom van!!!!!
I took it and parked it at the house. I'm not driving that thing. I'm gonna look rediculous as a 20 year old male driving a socccer mom mini van!
