Right i have had my 316i compact auto 99' 1.9 for two to three months now, and am slowly losing patience, although she is approaching 10 years old, so i suppose like VW Golfs stuff needs replacing. Anyway I've had a so called Full Service cowboys in south London done it. thermostat Merc specialists in Abbots Langley
Releasing the track rod arm in order to carry out Tracking,(A1 BM specialists) I have had alarm constantly going off problem which seems to be sorted the guys at A1 BM specialist said they reset the alarm. As stated by a previous thread A1 BM specialists are good, ALSO the airbag light returned to being illuminated, so we believe it's a sensor/tensioner problem in the seat. A another niggle has arisen, the interior footwell light remains on whilst driving, they said they would deal with this also.
All in all I recommend A1 BM Datchwood herts they know there stuff
Just like to say that i am not affiliated with them or any garage mentioned above in anyway, i used this forum in the Garage section to gain advice on a trusted BM specialist in the HERTS area. And A1 Bm were mentioned.
