    Hi all, new here and looking at buying a 2014 420d msport from an approved dealer, the car has only done 11800 miles, it is very up together and drives well, apparently the old guy who owned it has been unwell hence the low mileage. My concern is that the dealer didn't really let on at first...

    So took the 520d in for a service which was done by the dealership. However, they have advised that they can’t reset the service light. In fact I was advised that to determine what the fault is they would need to run a diagnostic which was around £100. I declined. Has anyone dealt with...

    Is this a known problem or feature? I knew my car was due a service shortly, it was saying in 1600miles but then stopped showing a distance and just showed red instead. But no sooner had that happened and next time my fuel got low the fuel warning light didn't come on. I had a range below...

    Hi all Just had my BMW 320d serviced (oil and filter) and noticed when starting that I'm getting a message stating next service is due in 6000 miles? Could this be a cpu error? Major service was done year before so a bit surprised it's stating next service is due so soon. Was serviced at a...
