    You have to know when to pick your fights...... sometimes your better off dealing with it on your own if its a small issue.

    Modifying a Toyota is getting increasingly complicated with each passing year.

    I don’t want to even think what it must be like to own and try to modify a German-engineered BMW/MINI... :puke:

    The OP was in the right place at the wrong time when the manufacturer rep spotted his Cooper in the dealer shop. Not his fault, just a jerk rep wanting to deny him his warranty. Could happen to any of us...........

    It would be a horrible mistake to buy either a Mini (routinely makes the lists of most unreliable cars) or BMW (expensive and unreliable, and has turned into a car for punks and chicks).

    Great post man. I have been trying to tell people this for years but... I am an engineer not a lawyer. I think you might make people think twice lol.
    I have been an expert witness in countless cases and I see what happens. Best thing people can do? Buy exactly what you want and don't mod it. Buy a beater and mod ot if you must.

    My brother drove a very recent 425i when he was in his "buy a more expensive car to attract women" phase. Of all the German cars out there, the BMW had the lowest quality interior by far, something that other people also say, but I hadn't personally verified as I was never interested in bimmers. He ended up with a GTI that was 4k off due to the dieselgate nonsense, and is quite happy with it.

    It didn't help that your track car was a Mini Cooper S. Those are the biggest pieces of shit on the road, even before modifications. Then adding performance parts on a car that is notorious for electrical issues doesn't help either i'm sure. The only worse company as far as reliability, which is also British made, is Jaguar Land Rover. Sorry you had to deal with that though!

    4Runner Trail wheels and Toyo Open Country ATII tires 265-70-17. Cosmetic stuff like Pro grille and OffRoad black bumper trim, vinyl delete on side, added hood graphic, OEM tube steps.
    Truth be told, there are consumers all over the country who are prevailing every day in MMWA cases and having their attorney fees paid by the losing manufacturer.

    I am not Nostradamus if so I would have been able to retire years ago.

    I bought the vehicle in second model year.

    I ran into that with my 2G. I was having the rear suspension TSB done because I had the shimmy and I was hoping to get the TSB leafs out of the deal. They had done the part prior to the leafs and the dealer told me they'd set me up with a rental car but the rep needed to approve it. She came in, saw my ARB bumper and denied me anything further.

    Went to a different dealer after I threw the lift on because my transmission was shifting wonky (the TC clunk) and the dealer replaced it under warranty without issue. While this isn't relevant to the M-M act, it's just an anecdote to corroborate your comment.

    First, OP is your dog a Staffy?

    Second, wrong place wrong time! Shitty situation, sorry.

    Third, always own two suits! Funerals and interviews.

    Finally, Ive found that dealerships want to do warranty work, modified or otherwise, as it is paid for by the manufacturer not the dealership.

    People need to learn to make relationships which in turn creates trust vs. threatening with lawsuits, trying to reference Acts, etc.

    Friends like to do good things for each other, not the other way around.

    Great post and thanks for sharing.

    We had a staffy bull, brindle and white, who lived to the ripe old age of 16....the dog in my profile pic is our current patterdale terrier....14 lbs of pure terror.

    I can’t even tie a tie. I actually had a salesman tie one for me 25 years ago and and I’ve been loosening and tightening it as needed since then.

    Ha! Thank GOD the Marine Corps taught me a few useful skills for life to include how to tie a tie. Beautiful dog. I have had two Staffy's (currently on my second).
