Ok thanks for that. Do the inspections inc filter and fluid changes etc?
Main dealer bmw value service is the best bet imo if funds allow
Sometimes the inspections come before or after 30000 miles, I think alot of it is to what kind of driving you do. ie long distance or short trips.
If you are doing short trips the inspections and oil changes will come round quicker.
Took my car to Wheelbase after the TC and Handbrake lights came on followng a Control Arm replacement by another garage.
An Autologic scan suggested a faulty Pressure Sensor which they claimed they changed.
I was not happy when 10 miles down the road the warning lights reappeared.
Some internet research suggested it may be a alignment issue so I took it to Miles Tyres, Thornbury (excellent Service) who spent 2 hrs adjusting the suspension on their Hunter machine.
The result was better handling and no more warning lights.
I would avoid this garage like the plague they had my car for three weeks it went there because it would run and then cut out had to ring them every other day to see what was going on and they kept trying to fob me off I eventually got fed up rang them and said what's going on and they said if i wasn't happy with the service that I should come and get the lol!! I paid money to get the car transported there and then to get picked up to another garage and then to top it all off when I got there the car the would not start completely there was more lights on the dash which weren't there before and wouldn't even start with jump leads and the battery was brand new bought it they day before I went to the garage 90 pound YOU HAVE BEEEN WARNED
Please avoid this garage like the plague had my car for tree weeks and didn't do anything with it kept trying to say it was this and that when I knew it was a crank sensor and then after two weeks they said we think it's a crank sensor!!!!!!! Then waited another week part didn't come ask them wots going on they said if your not happy with the service then I should pick the car up first and last time I will be using them YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!
