    Hi there, i am new here and new to BMW's. Always been a Ford man and still own a Cosworth powered escort mk2 with around 450bhp which is good fun.
    But i have just managed to save a little bit of money to buy a 530i sport on a 51 plate (2001) with 98k miles with electric seats, sat nav widescreen etc to use as an everyday car.
    I went to view the car tonight, the car was up for sale for £4980 ono.
    So after having a good look around it i found a couple of little scuffs on the corner of the front and rear bumper and a pin dent in the rear pillar, which is hardly noticable and a broken n/s front fog light glass.
    Then i got inside and noticed the pixels on the display on the speedo was gone, i know there are ways of repairing them, but i don't know who is the best to do it?
    Ive made him an offer of £4400 and he said yes. Ive only given a deposit so far, but if the few bits that need doing are too much money, i will look for another.
    Any help would be great

    There is a guy in Southampton that will repair your pixel problem for £80.

    You can either take it to him and he'll do it while you wait or you can send the unit to him and he'll try and get back to you within a couple of days.

    Search Ebay for BMW pixel repair.
