    Hi, my service is due for my car next month, I have a 2014 bmw 120d, how does this work in terms of getting the service logged into the idrive system, can I go to any garage or does it have to be bmw or a garage with the correct software?

    Hows it going all? Here's a thought. Who would buy a car off someone who self services their vehicle, writes what has been done in the book or even stamps their own book with the work carried out? As a mechanic I've self serviced every vehicle I've ever owned (bearing in mind I've only ever...

    Hi I recently upgraded from the 520d to 530d and the car now needs the first service which is just an oil filter, microfilter and oil change from what I have been told. My previous car had the service pack included so I never knew the cost from the main dealers. I called two local main dealers...

    I wondered if anyone could advise on typical running costs for an f30 3 series please...including rough difference between dealers and independent. I don't think I'd ever afford the former and need to know if I can afford the latter before beginning to source a car seriously. I know it's a...

    Hi there. My Mrs has a 1 series convertible.Anyway I am wondering if there are many specialists out there as the cost at the main dealership seems ridiculous. The problem I see is that the car will have to go somewhere which has the key reading facility to read what service is due etc. I suppose...
