    Dealer strikes again

    My 2009 Cooper S in for maintenance and the service writer calls to tell me technician shorted out the computer. They will now (un)happily replace it.I

    What else can I expect that has to be reset or that I ought to make sure is functioning? Are there any other components that are susceptible? Isn't this a bush-league mistake?

    update

    for those of you who read my question on disruption of pre-sets, but had no advice or thoughts to offer, let me update: dealer did in fact blow the computer module; tech said it sometimes just happens when they 're trying to re-program the unit. Even so, and despite my concerns, all of the presets either had their own brains or were saved and I did not have to re enter the prefs for locks etc or for the after market radio or anything else for that matter. Now that we've talked about that, anybody want to chime in on their experiences with carbon build up on the valves at less than 60k miles? or a leaking valve cover they replaced with the "new type"? Call it $1700 and we're even.
