    Hi guys,is there any online way of finding if my second hand f31 has a service plan. I know probably if I went to my local franchised stealer he could tell me but as I side stepped a car he was offering and bought from another garage I’d prefer to find another way of checking if I’d got lucky!!

    My X3 is getting delivered in couple of weeks time and I am looking at buying a service plan. I had a service inclusive plan (5yrs / 50K miles) on my F10 but since BMW changed the service inclusive plan to 3 yrs / 36k miles, the local dealer has offered pay monthly service plan as an...

    I have just bought a six month old x1 and would consider a service plan. I was quoted £590 for the basic 5 year plan. I don't do a big mileage and plan to keep the car about 5 years. Would it be worth it? Thanks for any advice given!

    Hi, Recently purchased my BMW e46 318 Touring, love the car! It’s smooth, quiet, excellent on fuel and you get tons of mods and cons for your money. On the not so good side, when purchasing the car the engine had slight vibration, after going for a run in the car it felt as if it was cured, so...

    Never had a BM before, and wasn't even looking for one, but this came up on Ebay just 5 minutes down the road. After a test drive I gave up on the idea of finding a hatch and decided to bid for this. £561 later it was mine, with long-ish tax and test, a service history and three owners from new...

    Hello all can someone advise how serious expensive and labour intensive this advisory item would be? The car does seem to have some play in the steering but not excessive hence why only an advisory. Thank you in advance
