Someone is messing with me! cry

Show up the same on my IPhone, IPad and computer.


Check you BMWST user preferences (top of this page under "My Stuff"). There's a time zone setting in there, and if it's wrong, it could explain why you're getting the same weird behavior regardless of which device you're using.


Thanks Mitch - While the times displayed seemed to be correct when I logged on the Board today, when I checked the user settings I found this: "UTC+000.00-UTC-12:58PM" (I am really not sure what that means. dopeslap)

I changed the time setting to "UTC-04.00-America/New_York-9:19" All seems to look good now. thumbsup

UTC is Coordinated Universal Time, successor to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

It would be the time at the Prime Meridian - zero degrees.

Your time zone is offset from UTC.

It I somehow acquire another '18 GSA, I might be up for an auction or Board fundraising event. As for the START/FART Pizza parties - with the popularity of your and Ken's recent events, I may not be able to afford attending them anymore! grin

Still have not heard anything about the GSA they have registered in my name, however, received this from the dealership in an email today:

"Hi ROBERT,

If you moved out of the area, you can still visit us online by checking out our website! We have a lot of great activities scheduled for the upcoming weeks, so we encourage you to come back and give us try.

If for some reason we have failed to meet your needs over the years, we would love to learn more about what we can do to earn your business.

Check out our inventory by clicking on the link below, or stop in today!"

I know how you can get their attention!

The FBI has a very limited sense of humor when it comes to vehicle VIN numbers, title issues, rebodying. I am quite sure were you to make copies of the plate and paperwork and forward it to them stating " I have inquired about this through them and have gotten no replies", " would you be able to tell me if this is a fraud attempt?".

I'll go put on some more popcorn.......

Slightly less hard-core would be to simply go to the dealer and tell them you're there to pick up your bike. Got the plates and the registration with you and everything, so hey, it MUST be yours. I expect that'll get a pretty prompt response out of them.

Kidding aside, when all is said and done, it would be fair to ask for some kind of a concession from them (free parts/service?) to compensate you for all of your time that has gone into cleaning up their mess.
