    Thanks for the responses everyone. Looks like I will be paying around 270-280 at an indy then. Now just need to decide on one out of the two.

    They are supposed to do diagnostics for an inspection II but the only real codes of interest are the engine ones as you have a manual gearbox and an Indy could get those for you. There are some great non dealer BMW specialists who will cost less and follow the service schedule to the word, plus recomendations from experience, these guys and dealers come in to their own for those jobs that need special tools like VANOS rebuilds or similar, but for day to day servicing, no special tools are required

    I suspect the gearbox will keep going for a while longer, did you ever change the box/diff oil? remains one of the better ways to see if anything is wrong inside.
    I took it to two gearbox specialists both said it not a gearbox issue because of the way it drives, but never got it on ramps. Based on their judgement they said no point doing a change of oil...I still want to do it though...

    However a few people have said they sometimes cause problems as it unsettles all the grime (metal shavings etc) inside and more problems could then start - is this a reasonable argument?

    I'm sitting on the fence on this one really..

    Paid £339 for an inpection 2 at BMW Main dealer for a 320ci. 330 will be the same price.
