Good Evening,

I posted recently about my start switch not working and how the dealer alerted me to an open campaign to update both switches at no cost to me. This will occur on Friday. I received notice from my dealer that the switches arrived today. Get ready for this. And I preface this with saying that I have been riding BMW's since 1971, a bunch of them. And I thought I was braced for a shocking high prices sometimes on parts. The left switch costs 446.18 and the right one 199.76. Wow!! Unbelievable or is it? If we add three hours of labor at 100/hr, it would have set me back 945.44.

Someone help me get over the shock of this for two handlebar switches. I'm just saying.

Thank you once again BMW of Grand Rapids for looking out for me.

Ride safe.

Bob

See if they'll throw in a oil change and a tire rotation. Amazing what dealer costs are for parts. Bad enough labor rates has hit the triple digit range.

I know, I had mine replaced twice on both sides. It was sarcasm. Did you notice I suggested a tire rotation? dopeslap

Twice. Good Lord. It's a whole day to the dealer, wait, and back. I'm hoping they have it figured out. It can't be that complicated.
