    Is he looking for a dealer? BMW of Ventura County is very near by Thousand Oaks. (I have no experience with them other than some friends of mine there say that they are a reasonable place to go.)

    I'm nearby to Thousand Oaks and in contact with Marc by email. BMW of VC is most definitely open for business as I have written to Marc. I'm waiting for a reply as to the location of his damaged GS and to see if I can help in some way.

    (Note: I normally hang out on where this topic is also posted.)
