Pacific BMW employees caught taking a BMW 1M Coupe for a joyride, both fired
It is videos like this that make many of us hesitant to bring our cars to dealers for work. Dealers then wonder why owners are so anal about the mileage on their cars when dropped off. Well, frankly, after seeing this we should all likely be far more cautious choosing a local dealer making absolutely certain they have reputable/mature emlpoyees. What happened is a Pacific BMW employee took a BMW 1M coupe for a spin through a residential neighborhood going full throttle in a car that did not belong to him. Like the genius he is, he had his friend film it and put it up on Youtube. By the time the video was removed from Youtube, mirrors were up.
City officials are already attempting to ascertain the identity of the driver in order to charge him with reckless driving through residential streets. The account that originally hosted this video had other videos showing similar antics meaning this was likely not the first time this happened. Pacific BMW has stated it has dealt with the employee which hopefully means they are looking for work somewhere else. Take this entire episode as a warning gentlemen. I doubt members here would respond kindly to seeing their car taken for a spin without permission by a dealer employee.
Edit: The general manager of Pacific BMW in Glendale, Steve Lindstrom, did confirm that the employees were fired.
