    Hi All,

    I am new to this site having recently purchased the last of the old E46 330ci M Sport.

    I am due an inspection 1 service soon, does anyone have any experience and knowledge of Main BMW dealership agents and Independents. For example the Stephen James branches.

    Would you also have know if independent stamps on service history lower the resale value?

    Thanks in Advance.

    andriusv,

    Have you used those two garages before then? I have heard terrible things about the sidcup branch.

    Thanks

    I'm also a user of BMsport (www.bmsport.com) in Bexleyheath - they look after my M3 CSL, E36 M3 racecar and my wifes mini cooper. I've used them for close to ten years now.

    Personally I wouldn't be concerned about seeing the stamp of a good independent in a service book, in fact I'd prefer it but I accept maybe not all buyers think like that.

    While driving the other day for about 6 hours in 31 degree heat there was a huge bang and I discovered that the radiator top hose had ripped open from the fixture at the top of radiator, just near the radiator cap.

    Can anyone tell me how much I would expect to cough up for a replacement including labour to have this sorted?

    Cheers

    I take my cars here too because they are very good. Im not sure of the hourly rate exactly but whatever they quote you is how much they charge and they only charge book time.

    Whatever the hourly rate is...its damn cheaper than any main dealer that is for sure!

    I have just had a quote from bmsport for a oil service

    We charge £110+VAT for an oil service = £129.25

    Got one from the main dealer sytner £129.99 Vat inc

    So its not always the case that indys are much cheaper
