Angry X1 Front and Rear Parking sensors

I purschased a 18d Msport 5 months ago and from day day 1 I have had problems with my parking sensors. When I parallel park between 2 cars or up against a solid surface and stop my sensors will go crazy, they keep cutting in and out or pick up objects that aren't there, also when reversing back the fronts will pick up something that is over over a metre away. I have taken it back to the dealer 6 times now to fix it, and they have now given up on it. Also in the last few days I have been recieving a warning on the dash when I start the car telling me there is no key inserted in the slot eventhough it is ( not sure if these are connected?).
I have just contacted BMW customer services who tell me to live with them! On a 29000 car?
Well congratuations BMW you have just lost a customer who swaps his car every 18months.

sflmb...go on facebook, search for BMW UK page and put a comment on there, name the garage and the person. You will get a very quick response from BMW as they don't like the publicity and will try and sort it ASAP for you.
Hope it helps

Just received a reply from BMW. Their final word about my situation is live with it. My reply to BMW was good luck for the future, as you will never see any of my money again!
