    Thank you everyone

    I just wanted to thank everyone here on the forum for all of the kind words regarding my expertise on Z8's. I have been quite busy doing many pre purchase inspections. While a good source of extra income I really do it because I am passionate about the Z8 and want potential new owners to be completely satisfied if they buy a car I inspect. I am painfully honest with my inspections but I am also fair.

    I would never have had the confidence to buy my Z8 without Marty's help on the board and offline. There is no one on the board that knows more about evaluating a purchase.

    Thanks again, Marty!!!

    General question: Is there a way I can get a legit BMW profile of my Z8's service history? Sorta the one the dealer see's when he punches up my VIN?? My dealer said he couldn't print it.
    Thnx, Jim

    hmm. .. . I've encountered the same thing before; can't = won't. How does one motivate a dealer to provide a print out?

    Dealers have been told by BMW not to provide them; it's the typical liability bull. That said, if you dealer isn't willing to provide it, you don't have a good enough relationship with them. I have gotten them before without much trouble. Depending on how bad you want it, talk to the store manager (not the service manager) and promise that the info is strictly for your use and offer to sign whatever. That has worked for others.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll try that next time. BTW; is the store manager the same as the GM? Or is it the top guy in the service department?
