    Thanks to you all for this information.. I am going to give NW BM, Peter Michaels and Darren Woods a bell later today and ask for the full price of everything.. I'll post it on here. I'll get the service done next month and will post my experiences on here also. Cheers everyone!

    Ok so... been quoted for Ins 2 as follows:-

    1) Northwest BM Horwich £160 + VAT so around £188
    2) Darren Wood Stockport £160 + VAT so around £188
    3) Peter Michaels Bolton £259 inc VAT

    Not sure why Peter Michaels is an extra £71 but have heard they're good.

    I am gonna give North West BM a go I think just because it's closer to home than Darren Woods... I will report back on my findings!

    Had the Level 2 Insp done at North West BMW Horwich on Saturday. £160+ vat. Very polite and seem to have done a good job. Happy with everything so far... They noticed that I have a cracked spring on rear offside which doesn't sound unrealistic - Z4 is known for springs going! So I will book it in for both to be replaced £280 plus vat prior to MOT which they also do for £40. The guy told me that the Z4 is "pretty mint" other than that... happy with this since I've only had the car since October 2010 and you never know what is going to show up!

    Bit disappointed...

    On the one hand very happy that the car passed the MOT today at North West BMW, Horwich. Had the rear springs done at the same time.. Parted with £379 by the time the VAT man took his chunk.. Can't complain about that - such is life and my BMW is worth the money so I am more than willing to spend the dough... and the car does feel that bit better now the work has been done..HOWEVER...

    I turned up to collect the car, dutifully paid and was told.. "IT'S IN THE GINNEL AT THE BACK"... sure enough the car was sticking out of the alleyway... Ok, no real problem I can live with that...

    Then went to get in and found they'd parked it (in the ginnel/alleyway)with a piece of large thorn bush resting across my bonnet.. Just seems a bit disrespectful given that I'd just parted with so much cash...

    Thankfully there doesn't seem to be any scratches... but I think I'll be trying one of the other Indy's next time...

    Feel let down. Badly wanted to like this place because of the good feedback others have written on here and it's proximity to home. Can't fault the actual workmanship, they are very polite also when speaking to them etc but I can't bear to see my car parked with such little care... :-(
