I took my bike to the BMW dealer in Panama City...Bavarian Motors Panama S.A. Calle 50 y 65 in Panama City. I had spoken with and exchanged emails with Roberto Pinto ( speaks English) the director of service at this dealership. I expained that I was from Canada and was riding to South America. Roberto had checked my VIN and had assured me the problem would be fixed under my warranty. He had alao requested some pictures of where the leak was.
I arrived at Bavarian Motors on Jan.2nd at 2pm and was met by both Roberto and Isael Urriola the technichan who was going to work on my bike.The dealership is as big and professional as any I have seen.
I also wanted my brakes checked and left both front and rear pads with them.
I left my bike and was driven back to my hotel. I received an email the following day saying my bike was ready. Once again they provided transportation from my hotel.
The oil leak was fixed under warranty. The front pads were replaced, the rear pads were okay, the bike was washed and cleaned,the chain lubed and the clutch lever adjusted. it was a like a new bike. I was charged $30.00. ( Thirty dollars).
Impeccable service. It is dealers like this and Motohaus BMW in Leon, Mexico that make it a pleasure to ride a BMW.
My experience with these two dealers and their employees has been exceptionally good. Absolutley no complaint.
