Most BMW dealers service centers (in the US) open very early - 7AM - or have key drops. Since you are an hour away, perhaps you can arrange with the sales person who sold you the car to drop it off the night before, get a loaner, then pick up your car after it is repaired and after you get done with your work.
As far as taking a week to get an appointment - I'd say that this is as serious (and as expensive when out of warranty) a problem as any of us would want to face -- I make my appointments through my sales rep @ Classic BMW in Turnersville NJ and don't face these sort of problems.
Hope things work out for you!
: Today, while trying to put the top down, the motor kept running, even when I took my foot off the brake and stopped pressing the button. The only time it stopped was when I held down the brake and the "up" button.
: I was able to throw everything out of the trunk (which was of course full), open the compartment disconnect the motor from the top and also pull the power connector. Whenever I re-attach the power, the motor starts again.
: I tried pulling the fuse and putting it back, but that didn't help. Any ideas?
: I can take it to my dealer, but that will take a week to get an appointment and take 2 hours or so (the dealer is ~1 hour away) and I'm hourly paid of course... so I loose that income... I'm actually quite upset... shouldn't a NEW car that cost 40k+ not have so many problems?
