Put my car in here following an accident, rear wishbone squashed alloy smashed abs goosed dash lit up light a christmas tree. You get the picture.

Anyway car came back with no problems and costs seemed ok, the paperwork side of the job was not the best tho as the details of my car were wrong with the chassis no of someone else car etc.

Other than that they seem to know BMWs and were very helpful over the phone.

Having to put the car into dealer for 4 wheel alignment tho as they didn't have the machine. Going into Douglas Park in Hillington for it

Got car back from Douglas Park after the KDSII alignment. Car was valeted on return so that was nice.

What was not nice tho was the suggestion that the following was wrong with the car:

n/s/r wheel bearing
n/s/r flange
n/s/r trailing arm
n/s/r speed sensor

phoned the first garage and they said they inspected all of this when replacing the damaged part and the bearing showed no wear, the flange was ok the trailing arm was straight and the speed sensor was fine. Not impressed with Douglas Park it would appear the suggestion of Insurance money is translated to do un-necessary work.:frown
