    Hi just took my car to a garage as the ABS light came on and I have just been told that if I take the car to BMW it is going to cost £1500 plus as the ABS modulator needs repairing! I have only had the car one year and it has 42,000 on the clock, I'm a little shell shocked to say the least. The garage said they can do it for £432 but I wont have my car for 2 weeks as they need to send the modulator off to be looked at. Please can anyone give me any advice, one of my friends bought a BMW and the same light came on one week after having it, he went to BMW even tho he bought it at a auction and they did it for £250 as it is a "common" problem they just dont tell you that. Not what I expected one year after purchase.

    many thanks

    It is a common problem, and BMW all too often quote the price for a complete new "hydro unit" which is the ABS/DSC controller.
    There is a repair kit available at approx £180 + fitting, so maybe see if you can get someone at BMW to check through the parts/repair kits and that should slash the bill.
