    X5 2003 sport SE 3.0D - can any one advise. I am struggling to find a decent BMW garage that won't swing led. Recently went to a leading Sheff BMW indy garage who decided to change the injector and loom when a recondition would have done the job. Then proposed to charge me 1hr labour for trying to change a break light. They tried to put the single filament bulb in when it required a dual, then thought the reason why it wouldn't work was due to corrosion!
    I am informed that the rear bushes now need replacing, est £400. Can anyone advise of a good garage in south Yorkshire and a guide price?

    Name and shame!!

    Not S Yorks I'm afraid, but I can give you some details of a place in Hudds if you're willing to stretch that far and/or get stuck?

    I believe you're not the first person to have problems with them . I seem to recall a post on here some time ago with similar complaints.

    No problem. He's called Muj (Asian guy) and he's on 07879048268. Got a small unit in Birkby in Hudds, ex BMW mechanic of 10 years. Tell him Rob with the silver 330Cd and failing turbo sent you please.

    Link with location of his garage is here.

    Autotecnics, meadowhall Sheffield, highly reccomend. Found them highly professional, honest, good value for many. For a small charge u can borrow their new mini while the car is in port. They even will keep the part they have changed to show the defect before they throw it away. They are miles better than QM BM Indy specialist.

    how much did they charge you then, and what exactly did they do?
