    I have just joined the BMW Brotherhood with a 328i & an I am looking for a good but reasonable Indy BMW service in West Sussex. I am in between Brighton & Portsmouth but dont mind travelling a bit to get to a good garage.
    Can anyone recommend a good one near me. Thanks

    I had a look round the net & found a garage in Hove called AJK Robertson, who are an indy garage that does BMWs & Mercs. I had the car in for a check over & service 2 which was quite reasonable compared to a dealership

    There is an indie near Guildford who's maechanic Steve is very good. I will not comment on the indie as a whole though having bought a couple of cars there and deciding never to go back!

    Recent surprise for me was a trip to Chandlers in Angmering (Dealer). They are giving a 60% discount on labour for cars over 10 years old. Result: auto gearbox oil change, fault codes read and a wash n hoover = £102 including the VAT. The nearest indie price I had was £150 plus VAT just for the oil change.

    I suspect I will be using the stealer again for those jobs I really cannot be bothered with!

    That's a fantastic deal Laird, I wish I could get bits done for that price. Very good idea to entice people back into the dealership. Red.
