    What to look out for

    All, I'm on the lookout for a E60/61 in either diesel or petrol, prefer the 3.0 litre option. Apart from the obvious, are there any niggles or issues I should look out for when buying, is there anything worth viewing in the hidden menus? Does PRO nav always have bluetooth connectivity? Thanks in advance. John.

    Dear All, I have searched the forum with no luck to find a detailer near me in Worcestershire. Can anyone recommend someone near ish to Worcester or Hereford. Thanks in advance.

    I just surprised you have parted with a large sum of money without driving/checking the car?

    Yes, it's Detail My Car or DMC Newbury. They're obviously doing well for themselves as they have moved to bigger premises, They used to be near the race course which was handy for losing money, they are now on the old Greenham common site. Just google dmc newbury.

    Probably the wrong section but talking of detailing, I used to use a guy in Newbury but have since moved. Can anyone recommend someone near Tenbury Wells. Worcestershire/Shropshire/Herefordshire borders?

    Nope and when my wife rang and asked if the car was ready they said just washing it now, they hadn't cleaned it so shes due a complementary valet. I am going to check the dipstick to see if the oil looks new, you never know.

    They are refunding the litre of oil and the emissions control service. Winner.

    A tad late in the day but someone owes my two shiny pound coins. The BMW service manager left on Friday so the Mini service manager rang and he is looking into the issues and will call me straight back.

    Looks like you're a shiny pound up today. I've just phoned and asked when he goes home as I haven't heard from him and he's not in today. Someone will be calling me back soon though

    Thanks for the tip , she's gone shopping but I'll check it's actually there. I phoned the service dept and the service manager isn't in, left instructions he phone me first thing Monday morning, should be a interesting conversation.

    The wife has just taken her 330d f31 with 54000 on the clock for a minor service ie oil and filter, I suggested she have the micro filter done at the same time. She tried to call me as they got her to have the fuel system cleaner and a litre pack of oil in the boot for an extra £40. I've done a quick google search and the fuel system cleaner is just Chevron Techron anyone had this done, I suspect the dealership have up sold her. PS the car has never used a drop of oil from new so why it needs a litre bottle in the boot? Cheers John
