  1. BMW Garages and Parts Retailers
    I would like to share an experience with BMW Park Lane in London in order to protect other potential BMW buyers for the unprofessional practices of BMW Park Lane.

    I have the pleasure in recommending Autohaus Diagnostics in York. They are a BMW and MINI independent specialist run by two highly skilled BMW Senior and Master technicians. I gave them the job of updating the cooling system on my 2004 E46 320i as I had the constant and worrying ‘add coolant...

    As the title says, does anybody use a main stealer for normal servicing? If you use an Indy, any concern in de-valuing the service history when it comes to sell? I am on PCP and OEM parts are fine to use. I plan to trade in after a few years anyway. Thoughts?

    UPDATE 520d F11 not starting: door locks are the problem Here is an update to my lengthy first post below. The problem has got nothing to do with the glow plugs, despite the Stealer's convictions that my 27K mile car needed new ones! The actual problem is that the driver's door lock doesn't...

    I know this topic has been covered, but the threads I found are a few years old and BM Motors, Law for example seem no longer to exist. Increased low rev whine changing to high rev whistle from the back of the engine suggests my turbo is on the way out. (320d, 118k miles). As a main dealer...
