Just received a phone call from Mr BMW....

Recommended Posts

Apparently our shit bin E91 320d Msport (always remember the Msport bit! :lol: ) is one of the 300odd thousand cars that’s been recalled! 

They said the first warning sign is it won’t lock/unlock! 

Ive overcome that problem by changing the battery in the fob..... :rolleyes:

 lets hope we get a hire car when it goes in! It’ll need new rear tyres when it goes back and possibly a new gear box! :lol::lol:;)

I think watchdog had something to do with it? As BMW uk where inundated with phone calls when the news broke? 

They said just to wait for the letter then book it in? 

I think I'll be very unlucky to get any of the problems thow? It’s now sitting at just under 203k I think if it was going to break it would of by now? ;)

Well apparently there’s no hire car available as it’s “only” a 2hr job! We all now how long a 2hr job can take....

I wonder if I can bill BMW for my time? Hmmmm....

They had my e39 for about 3 1/2 hrs to do the airbag. They did wash it though. 

That fills me full of confidence that dunc! 

According the the bloke on the phone “it’s only a fuse under the bonnet that can fail whilst your driving!” 2hrs to change “just a fuse” come on, I know I can drag a job out but really....

 

If they want to wash mine I think they will need to give me a hire car! :lol: 

Whats the saying? No matter how hard you polish a turd, it’s still a turd! :lol::lol::lol:

Hell no! I make sure they don't wash mine. Grit filled sponges :o

 

My previous car would have been in the recall but now somebody else can take it in to be fixed. I took the bloody thing in enough times ... good deal that BMW warranty :lol:
