Default Problem Getting Plates for my i3... 5 months and counting

Hello,

I bought a "left over" 2014 BMW i3 in April 1 from Patrick BMW in Schaumburg, IL and had it shipped to my home in Georgia. Patrick was advertising the car for $8,500 off MSRP and I negotiated a bit more. GA dealers weren't taking nearly that much off.

The temp plates expired on May 1 and through a series of errors from the Patrick title department, they still have not been able to register the car. No plates means I can not legally drive it. I have offered to do the registration myself, but they insisted on doing it.

I have paid over $7,400 (down payment, monthly payments, interest, insurance) towards the two year Owners Choice (similar to the lease) and have not been able to use the car for the last 138 days. I just want to use the car and suggested the send me dealer plates until the registration thing could get sorted out.

As you will see in the link below, BMW USA corporate won't help me and the dealer no longer replies to my messages. Including the title guy, sales person or General Manager.

I hope you will pick up this story and help me out. I do love the car, it's our second i3, but the situation is unacceptable. My next course of action is to contact the Illinois Attorney General's office to see if they can offer any assistance.


Thanks,
Tummy
