    bigedd dude, where do you go for bimmer servicing? I need to look elsewhere too and pronto.

    Hi Angie, yeah that;s the one but be wary I think there is something on at Ingliston and drove by a massive queue / holdup today at the m way exit / merge on to roundabout.

    Also I find them a bit hit and miss at Eastern, I would classify them as squirmers. Would squirm out of footing the bill for anything if they could. Good luck tho Red.

    .

    Do all my own servicing red

    Once your car gets as old as mine its not economical to send it to a dealer
    and Ive been burnt in the past with garages last and final time was when they never changed the air filter in a standard service, fooking basic stuff. I stopped doing my own maintenance for about 5 year. then when I finally got round to building my garage thats when I started again

    So cant recommend anyone, apart from myself

    Yeah red they've always been like that, I knew that before I bought my first car from them back in 2002. They were jokers, totally ignored me in the showroom because I was a 17 year old girl, but had all the time for my Dad but when he said they should be talking to me they walked away. However I need a decent service for my car after the last 7 times in Vardys (and i've only had the car since the end of Feb!) My other half don't live too far from the new one and it's luckily at the right side so don't need to venture by ingliston. Phew!

    Just hope Jason they return it to you fit and well. Mines came back to me doing 12.1mpg and a quater of a tank missing

    Its hard to find a place thats good these days, They're only interested in getting as much money out of you as they possibly can, with little or no work

    Get the Overalls on angie4m

    already got em sitting in the garage, just a shame that the car is only a few months old so it had to go back to BMW for warranty work. I think i'll do the servicing myself tho.

    Got a diagnostics program to reset it all when i'm done
