    Need some advice on where I stand with the dealer for the following scenario. Whilst under Manufacturers Warranty, I raised a dash rattle fault with my local dealer - they duly obliged and took out the dash to determine the cause and fix it. 3 visits later over 18 months, and the...

    Hi Chaps I have recently purchased my first BMW as above at the grand old age of 55 as a retirement present to myself.

    Hi I have a 2016 520D F10 which will be 3 tears old next month. As it is 3 years old the service indicator to change the brake fluid has come on, I contacted BMW and the charge is £100 plus I have to travel 15 miles, plus get a courtesy car (which they charge insurance for) then go back collect...

    Hello All My 520D F10 is coming to the end of its 3 years and I have booked in for an end of warranty check and MOT next month in April with a BMW main dealer. On the initial engine start of my car, it is telling me that a service is due in April 2019. So when I checked my iDrive for the list...

    Hi, I bought a 2016 435d from a used dealer (not main dealer) in December, since taking delivery of the car I've become aware of the following issues. I'm not local to the dealer, it's 6 hours drive away so there is no way I'm going to visit them to put anything right as I'd have to stay...

    OK - so I will try to keep this brief :). My F06 640d went into my local BMW Dealer for a dashboard repair, which involved removing all the dash. I collected the car just before Xmas and all seemed OK. However, very shortly after I noticed that there was a substantial scratch on the Odometer...

    Hi guys, one of my dipped headlights has just failed, but the idrive says I need to visit a service centre to get it looked at. Can't I just get a bulb from Halfords and do it myself?

    Hello folks, I'm looking to see if anyone has any experience of BMW correcting their service records as I think I'm being incorrectly advised by a main dealer (won't name them at the moment). Going to spin a yarn below as to get to this point I've had a hugely unsatisfactory experience with the...
  13. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Took my car to a BMW dealer last week as its under extended warranty. The car had been making a siren like noise for a little while, but was boosting and there was no other problems. The dealership decided to replace the turbo regardless which I was happy about as there was "partial bearing...

    My car is in for repair as it has a ruptured fuel pipe, I received a phone call at 5:10pm last night saying the part is ordered and will be fitted. At 5:19pm my car was taken out and put under hard acceleration twice then taken back into the garage. Obviously the car would still be cold so I am...

    Anyone here got a new BMW with LED headlights? I have the adaptive ones which were a stupidly expensive option and both lights get condensation in them. Notice it most after washing and it does burn off once dry but I am just a bit miffed as BMW say this is quite normal as the lights are...

    Hey chaps. Recently bought a rather nice E92 exactly one week ago from a solo dealer (Redgate Lodge, Newcastle) who has rather a high reputation. Since driving it away last Wednesday, I've had to re-inflate one of it's tyres twice, it seems to have a slow puncture. It may not fit within the...

    Anyone have any idea how I go about stopping my dealer postcode / address from showing in green everytime i press the skip track button on the radio? It doesnt happen if I use the wheel on the steering wheel, but if I stream music & press skip, it takes almost the whole top line to show me the...

I have just had a full service and new battery installed by my normally excellent main dealer in Lavlanet, south of France where I live. All is well but when I checked after I got home they have installed a 90amh battery rather...
