    Hi there!

    Just bought a 2006 320i E90 and I'm really impressed with it so far.

    Anyone able to recommend a good BMW mechanic here in Hampshire? I checked the BMW service history and I'm amazed at how long the oil's been in there so I'd like to get it changed ASAP. The display reckons it needs changing in 2400 miles (I presume that assumes 25k mile intervals - Argh! ).

    Hey gundo. Welcome to BFUK

    Have a look in the general Forum section BMW Garages and Parts Retailers (or click the link ) and you may find a recommendation or two. If you don't put a post up and I' sure someone will advise if they can.

    Anyway, I'm sure you will find in general that the forum is very helpful and friendly, so see you in the forums and have fun!

    Oh and come check out our BimmerForum UK City

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...t-it-and-t711/

    Your participation would be very much appreciated

    Welcome mate, i've noticed you have signed up to the Hampshire Local group... i will meet you soon in that case.

    In regards to a specialist around Southampton, Bartley are good but i can't rate this guy high enough http://www.iridiumengineering.co.uk/ Sean is spot on and based in Bittern.
