    Help please! In the bad storms in Scotland last week I lost some roof tiles which landed on my pride and joy....the insurersent me to their preferred repairer in east Kilbride who said the roof needed to be replaced but it was a specialist job and they couldn't do it.
    I told the insurer I would take it to the BMW dealer I bought it from - Harry fairbairn giffnock-but they are now saying its a specialist job we don't have the tols and you are on your own. I find this quite incredible....so I emailed BMW uk customer service today...no response yet.
    So ...I have hunted the net looking for the answer...finding nothing...

    Therefore not sure if posting in the right place but appealing for advise , surely BMW uk can't sell m3s and then tell people they are on their own if the roof is kanckered.??!!

    Don't fret. BMW head office will surely sort it.

    Can't believe a dealer won't help to be honest :(

    Great news! I found another dealer - Douglas Park hillington Glasgow- and they can do it. BMW uk did get back to me as well and they were going to recommend the same place. Learning is that dealer I bought it from will get no more business from me! Thanks again for the messages .....I will have to post some pics when I get it back...gleaming!!

    Nice one for leaving an update

    I can 100% guarantee you that had you bought a car with a normal metal roof - that tile would've landed a couple of feet to the right of it
