In Reply to: Any problems installing the Glove box CD changer? posted by Gary on August 10, 1999 at 09:14:20:
I too would appreciate any comments on this issue. I am getting a 2000 528 any day now and I have already purchased the changer. It would seem to me that BMW would issue detailed instructions to their technicians as a bulletin so that they know how to install the thing. For a dealership to tell you that they have a hard time installing a BMW product is a red flag IMO that their service department may be wanting.
My question relates to the billable number of hours to get the thing installed. It should be set and not dependent on the relative lack of experience of the technician. That way everyone pays the same whether they're in Los Angeles or Alaska. Does anyone know if such a schedule exists? If it is open ended I may be F***ed because I am in a rural area at a small dealership and they've never installed one of these things before. Seven, eight hours of labor is not cheap. Not to mention I am fearful they're going to rip apart my brand new car trying to get the thing in there.
Thanks for any info.
