    The carmax story continues to amaze in a positive way. Well, we'll see tomorrow.

    Today carmax said they didn't feel comfortable fixing my A pillar leaks. So they made an appointment for me tomorrow at the local bmw store in town.

    In theory, carmax pays the dealership and car get fixed by a competent person to tackle this task. Will report back.

    Sounds like carmax got a lifetime customer. Three months warranty is very generous. My wife bought her 2008 Saab in there back in 2010. I remember it was only one month warranty.

    Yes, I was told that this is a good plan (90 day warranty) and I am only about 60 days into it.

    So, Carmax agreed to fix the leak at the BMW dealership. That's good news.

    The bad news is that I have the impression from talking with the service man, that they are replacing the wrong part. If he is correct, they will replace the seal that is at the top of the windshield. In my opinion and from my reading on other forums, that is not the correct seal to change. But what do I know? I hope that they know what do do given the symptoms. And it has been raining non stop here for 3 days... I have a ghetto tuperware on my passenger side leg bolster.....

    I will let them do the best they can. Carmax is paying for everything it seems.

    Oh and setting up the airbag recall on the E46.

    Nice that they readily address the issues though.

    That, and they give me a ride to work (from Carmax) within 5 minutes of dropping the car (if that!).
    BMW dealer: only at 8:30 and 9:30!

    So BMW dealership changed the front seal, the one that is at top and both sides of the windshield. Price for ~700 paid by Carmax. Part was only $100 online, $160 at dealership + labor and butyl tape.

    According to them it does not leak anymore! I hope they are right and need some rain to prove that!

    Thought about doing a front cup holder delete. i don't use them and they are a bit of an eye sore.
    I would have to pull them out and vinyl wrap the remaining trim piece.

    Thought about doing yellow lamin-x on the old fog lights (just for looks).
