BEWARE: BMW Loaner Cars

I returned my loaner car to Peake BMW in New Orleans. I smoked one cigarette in it and when turned it in, they slapped me with a $150 decontamination and fumigation remediation nuclear reactor contamination f#$%ing charge. My real rocket then detonated and I went ballistic!!!!

I had the President, V-P, Service Manager, Receptionist sticking their nose in the rental. Seems pathetic for all these people sniffin my car. After 20 minutes and trained K-9, they let me go and said it was not that bad.

WTF!

Sounds pretty good to me. Hate getting in a car that smells like smoke.

Totally agree, smokers don't realise that they, their clothes, house, car, smell like manky old ashtrays.

Extreme bad manners to smoke in the loan car.

Evey car rental agreement I've seen in recent years has a "no smoking" clause with a penalty attached.....which is just fine with me.
