    Automatic Transmissions Preston - Thumbs up!

    Evening, roughly how long does this take from start to finish? I live in Derbyshire and unless someone can put on to a good team as such then im going to have to make the trip. And is it doable on a Saturday at all? 09 plate 530d LCI regards Rob

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Washed mine this morning as its been parked in works yard all week. Buggared off to walk the dog the missus has arranged for the builder to pop round and drill the holes for the new house number to be put on the new porch blah blah. So now the back end of my car is covered in brick dust, thank fully neither of them decided to wipe if off.

    This I went to Eden tyres in Derby and I had already spoken with them to order me in 2 kumhos. ( the difference in me getting them and taking them and them ordering them was £2 extra wheel) Full alignment on the Hunter machine they have the bill was £257. This was for the fronts only though. Will report back after ive done a few hundred miles at the weekend, but I ordered them on the backing of the reviews on here as im new to BMW ownership.
