    Lol @ toys r us mechanics
    And on a serious note.. Go back and talk to the manager/owner and demand that they put right what they've done.. At their own cost... A little mention of 'trading standards' and the word 'report' may assist you.. Although personally I wouldn't want to take it back to them again..

    Hi smuler yeah that would be great if you could send over the details as its only down the road from me
    The noise is coming from the after market shock on front, they are hand adjustable & the previous own said he paid £1000 a corner so they must be ok I would think but I'm no mechanic :-(
    Ha I bet he felt like a lemon when you showed him the vid

    HBB,

    Yes, he did feel like a lemon. But it's slowboy who you need to ask for the details, of local garage.

    If Aldershot isn't too off the reservation for you, there is an Ex-BMW indy there. Name's Chris Plummer, I have used him before, as have family, and recommended to friends and users here too. Not a very smiley people person, but he does the job using only genuine BMW parts. Worked at Altwood and Barons for 25 years between them. Have know him for over 15 years.

    If you think they have misused your car (your comments about no fuel).. what are you doing about it.

    Did you record the mileage at the point of leaving the car with them? I presume its not a BMW dealer?

    Hi clk139, yeah did make a note of milage but I believe they gave it some either in the work shop or drove it from me & back again like a bat out of hell.
    I called them last nite to complain & they said they will look into it
    They put a new battery in when I had it serviced but never told me the old battery had gone as I was away on holiday then tell me " we did it as a freebie " & when I complained they said oh but we gave you a battery free of charge!! Man I didn't even ask for it even that I said thanks
    They are a proper BMW garage just a crap one
