    Hello All,

    Couple of questions for the knowledgeable.

    I have just bought a 55 plate 525d sport manual 91,000 fsh and it was in good nick.

    Had it detailed first to get the body looking better, it wont be used that much as i use my van so its a weekend car.

    Q:1 would it be advisable to get a warranty?

    Q:2 Service: I was not happy with the oil it looked black they said they had serviced it for me, but i did not believe them even thou its stamped. so possible service / no service lights only parking light fail.

    Q:3 Re:mapp or something like that to better the running of the vehicle, as i dont know how it was looked after before i purchased it.

    Q:4 alloys refurbished they are ok but not fantastic.

    If anyone has any feedback it would be appreciated as a new owner needing some assistence .

    I am based around the cheshire area so any recomendations would be helpful .

    Thanks mike.
