Just been told my drivetrain error on my 2016 2 series gran tourer is clutch wear and tear and vibration plate - >£2k to fix

Seems odd given age and mileage? (2016/46,000)

No goodwill offer from BMW

Anyone had a similar issue?
Sure I saw somewhere it’s a common issue?

I'm assuming that's automatic?

2k seems like a brick load of money to fix a manual I'd say go buy yurself the best aftermarket flywheel you can get and clutch kit and ask a garage to do it for you tell them you have the parts but jyst want the labour I think 500 to 700 quid is well enough for labour n the parts shud be no more than 900 to 1000 so whoever is saying 2k sounds like they want to ride you no offence be careful shop around plus I'd get a trusted backstreet garage to check the feel of the clutch pedal if its hard it could be clutch related but if the car is operating fine shifts gear smoothly all gears and also there is no heavy clutch pedal and no juddering vibrating or hesitance when releasing the pedal through any gear then I would ignore the fault and I would look at getting the code erases permanently by a coding specialist

Is the clutch physically slipping or juddering during normal driving?
You're right it does seem strange for it to fail at 46k!... My old 5-series ran to nearly 200k on the original clutch! Unless the car has been abused, I would expect it to last way longer.
I'd take it down to an independent BMW specialist for a second opinion. No point in going through overpriced BMW dealer if the warranty is up and they won't contribute.
