  4. Petrol quality - does it matter where you shop?

    BFuk Open Topic
    Hi all, I had a bit of an incident the other night that got me thinking about fuel quality and the differing prices between retailers. I filled up at Asda (because its about 6p/L cheaper than BP/ shell etc.) and within seconds the car was misfiring badly. The tank is nearly empty now and the...
  5. Update regarding slow start and paint shop recommendations

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hello. Just a quick update regarding the car and its slow starting. The starter motor failed completely the other day. It has since been replaced and I cant believe how fast the car now turns over. Maybe the battery wasn't as low charged as I thought. However some nice person on Tesco trent...

    BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    Hi everyone, Just became the proud owner of a '97 328i coupe in Calypso red (still haven't quite made my mind up about colour!). Mechanically it seems very good, but does have the typical rust issues. Rear arches aren't great and one side has had a bad cover-up job attempted, fronts have a...

    The rear wing of my 330d has some paint damage which requires a re-spray. I called at the local main dealer for a quote and was not happy with the repair they suggested.

  17. Looking for a decent independent BMW repair shop, central Scotland

    BMW Garages and Parts Retailers
    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...
