I'm still not understanding how this is a hard decision. More schooling should never be a negative. You have that much more credentials, as I've previously stated, if you don't like BMW's once you're done, there's always a job at a Nissan dealership.

You know what dude, think of it in this mathematical way:

BMW is handing you $25000. You're pretty much "working" for 6 months. I'll just assume it's full time, so by my quick calculations: 8 hours a day x 5 days a week x roughly 26 weeks = roughly over 1000 hours.

You're getting "paid" $25/hour to simply LEARN!

At the end you also have a specialization not many mechanics have. At which point, it'll be your decision to use it or not. That credential alone will land you higher up on the resume pile than alot of your peers.

thanks nigs. ive been trying to keep in contact with these people but they never pick up the phone so ive been having a conversation through voicemail for a week now. after letting this stuff marinate for a week i realized that the only thing making this decision a hard one for me is the fact that i gotta school even longer. i graduated from college, but then tech school happened. im about to graduate tech school and then bmw happened. if i get into bmw, there are 17 classes in my way of becoming a master tech.... so basically im gonna try and get through it but my head right now is going :ALJSIOEJOWPJFLSDJFL:JSEFJIOD right now haha. last year i thought i would see the end of my student career very soon but i guess im cursed to be in school for the rest of my life.

You'll be going back to school throughout your entire career to get recertified, and keep up with technology. As I've previously stated, you're already that much further ahead in your career once your out of BMW. Meaning you'll spend less time making less money, and automatically be placed slightly higher up in the pay scale compared to if you didn't attend.

oh scan tools are somewhat ok. they actually make the job much easier. what i suck at is using a dvom to find an electrical problem. shit can get confusing! yo where have all you car savvy dudes on hb been? i dont think the term "scan tool" has ever been used here haha.

Bmw's only uses a service light reset tool when changing oil and major serivices. They mainly have that because if you change your oil yourself, you still have a service light come on. which can be annoying. The service engine light is a way for bmw to get their customers to go to dealers. in fact most manufacturers have service engine lights that need to be reset including nissan

Go with Nissan. Sounds like the BWW training/school is to hard for you, and you are probably more apt to fail. Especially since you came on HB looking for others to reinforce the decision you already made subconciously with their opinions and reasonings.

Both have some good opportunity man. By the sounds of it your really into this industry and if so it shouldn't matter which company you choose. You can make heaps of money on either side, the potential lies within the individual not the job.

do what you love man, thats all you can do
I love both companies, but seeing your options I think the best route is BMW. Better payoff and better experience

I say go with BMW. Especially if you plan on having a family in the future. The higher paycheck will help make life easier. Then again, i'm only 16 so I don't really know about life. Haha.
