    Welcome to the forum, handy if you need any spares etc as your local dealer is a forum vendor

    Well I picked up my car late yesterday, at long last

    I will post up some photos later when I find the camera.

    I would appreciate some advice though please. I purchased the car from a main dealer (not BMW i may had). They put a full MOT on it as well as serviced it as part of the sale. However, they want to stamp the service book, but I'm not sure this would be good having a Toyota stamp in my book??? They assured me that they used genuine parts but I'm concerned that this may not be recognised by BMW or any warranty companies I may proceed with later or on resale? I do have a 12 month warranty with the car through them though for what it's worth!!
    So my question is should I let them stamp my book??
    I should also add that it does have full service history (all main + one specialist) up to now.

    Regards, Rivo.

    welcome to the forum mate

    tough one regarding the stamp, although, wasn't there something recently amended about non-manufacturer servicing not invalidating warranties? Can't remember specifics, to be fair most of the time I have trouble remembering my name!

    Thanks guys, yeh my concern is not with the service or stamp, it's getting an after-market warranty when this one runs out!! I think I'll phone one of the warranty companies and check to make sure.
    The other option was to take it to a specialist and re-service it, but I know that maybe chucking out good money after bad!!

    Good point though on getting that invoice!!

    i'm still on the look out, after missing out on a perfect spec 07 plate 77k sold for £13.3k!

    was looking to purchase a 55 plate 65k for £12.2k but seller pulled out

    pre lci 535d aren't as much in demand on the used market, as saw a 05 plate with good spec 65k sell for £11.6k. however trade are hanging onto them possibly hoping lack of supply and pushing prices up.
