    How do, could any of you wise lads(or lasses) out there tell me of a good garage to service my lovely car. I live in the Rotherham/Sheffield area.
    Is it worth fishing out one of these or just take to Sytners in Sheffield for what I'll be gaining. Heard good and bad reports of Sytners but £319 for an inspection II service seems excessive to me. (Must be Yorkie in me).
    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Tony.

    2 years ago an In 2 was over 400 quid..

    yal pay close to 250 quid or more at an indy bmw these days and main dealers have dropped there prices all over the place..

    why complain? you only need one every circa 60k anyway..

    That sounds like you have been quoted list price.

    Call them again and ask for the 'Value' service or 'Four Plus' as it was previously called. This is a cheaper service for E46's that Sytner do.

    EDIT : The £319 is their value price

    Just had butchers at my service book and the last Inspection II was done at 54k, its now done 83k, is the inspec I all I need, bearing in mind the last service was done by an indy at 72k.
    dailydoggy, I didnt realise an In II was for every 60k mate, and I agree with you is not that bad really, the reason I was after a II cos its about 3k overdue and, as i said the last one been done by an indy.

    guessing it should be an inspection 1 or oil service at that mileage you should of had an oil service after the inspection 2..

    inspection 1 at main dealer is £199..

    it goes every 15k miles give or take a 1000 mile:

    oil service 15k
    inspection1 30k
    oil service 45k
    inspection2 60k
    oil service 75k
    inspection 1 90k
    oil service 105k
    inspection 2 120k
    and so on so on..

    They're on the right after the railway bridge behind the big Wickes on the way to Hillsborough.
    They're official vendors on here and have their own section. Good guys too, I used to have my E36 Compact serviced there.
    You might even get a bit of a BFuk discount.

    Cheers for that fellas.

    Jon- I know that road quite well so I'll give em a buzz, just what I'm looking for.

    Ps , while I'm here, is there any way around the reception problems with the radio ie, no 909 on the am freq, and loss of reception when the rear de-mister is on?

    Quarry Motors are a bunch of monkeys that just can't be trusted. Same applies to Sheffield dealer.
    Newhall is closest to you and very reliable and just a nice chap.
    Parkside Worksop is my main guy for anything car related. He his a bmw specialist btw.

    Left my car for 2 weeks with him as I went on holiday and wanted a huge list of things doing. So that sums up Parkside, so damn trustworthy and he won't rip you off at all.

    Newhall has autologic and parkside has the full GT1.

    There is also another place in Doncaster who has the GT1 and is run by 2 ex bmw people.
