    Hi All,

    Newbie to the site here.

    I currently own a 320D E90.

    Just got the car serviced recently from BMW and they informed me the Sump has a crack in it.

    Car was parked outside the house for a week without driving it as I've been away, and I've now noticed a patch of fresh looking oil on the road where the engine bay way.

    Had a quote from BMW and they've quoted me £700 to fix this. I'm planning on keeping this car for quite a while, so not too concerned with the BMW stamps in my service book.

    Does anyone have any recommendations of a good garage in the South West London area (Wimbledon or surrounding areas) that are reasonably priced, trustworthy and reliable?

    Thanks,
    Nij

    Ive seen a few sumps get welded in situ, may save you alot of £££.

    New sump fitted is around £150 plus parts.

    I'd say fitting a sump for £150 is a bit optimistic especially when the engine needs to be supported while half the under carriage is dismantled. £400 labour from BMW and possible £250 - £300 from and independent with the correct tools.

    AMC garage in Garratt Lane has been reliable for me for over 5 years.

    You may find someone that will TIG weld it in situ.

    Not sure I want to weld something covered in engine oil

    I'd want to take it off and clean the oil off first

    Were you losing any oil before the service? Just wondering whether the crack was caused during the service process-did it involve changing the oil and therefore the sump plug would have been undone-did they over tighten sump plug and cause the crack-might want to talk to them if your servicing is always done at that garage as the damage may have been caused by previous overtightening of sump plug?
