    First Service

    If we're talking 530d's then many older ones seem to need the high level oil fix at some point which is a software update, makes sense to combine with a service from a customer service perspective and savings against a call out/recovery cost.

    Engine Rough Running- off she goes on a recovery truck

    Similar message to what I got from Enterprise, they would only give me a leggy 320d after chasing round local branches and initially I got a mini - said bmw were their best customer due to the recall backlog. My high level fault was sorted with a reprogram after a couple of days with Halliwell Jones chester (who impressed, somewhat unusually!). Usually I'd have said Williams would be a better bet so it's unfortunate theyre quoting weeks - remote app was handy to see when the work really started though. Lean on your potential fleet supplier at BMW, worked well for me a few years ago.

    Central Heating Boiler question !

    Been lucky, our Vaillant hasn't skipped a beat since install ten years ago. Had it serviced a couple of times for original warranty continuity but otherwise just check the inhibitor and empty the magnetic trap periodically - so far, so good.

    Yep, think dealers/bmw probably embarassed by how limited non-EBT functionality is and don't want to mention limitations. But very easy to code in and resolve. A ten minute job with e-sys and an E-net cable.

    They're pretty poor in the rain and dark. Not a patch on the previous f10 xenons I'm afraid - half the light output which is why they don't need headlight washers as std.

    It's here!

    I approve.

    Tyres prevent wheel scuffing

    I've still scuffed one of mine very slightly , the 19s are bloody lovely on the G30/31 and a very easy clean too!

    This couldn't actually happen, could it?

    Ffs. Can you turn him off please. Its like a reading a badly crafted version of Catch-22.

    Talk about unnecessary additional costs...

    F20 120d sport issues?

    Ha ha. Wife had a 120d for six years and thought it was a hoot until the kids outgrew it!

    If you complain about BMW options

    Agreed but it's twice brake checked the guy behind at some speed and almost caused an accident itself, so afraid it's turned right down. I'll use my eyes and anticipation while I can. The wifes vw definitely saved a couple of car park contacts however!

    If you complain about BMW options

    Yep, unfortunately the kids asked what this wierd button did so we had turned it back on the day before!
  15. I picked up my msport G31 530d at a year old with 1200 miles for a smudge under £31500 when reduced. Main dealer AUC, spotless. No options but frankly only a speaker upgrade was needed and I've coded in extended Bluetooth. It did sell very quickly when finally reduced but the guy who bought it first couldnt sort his finance so I jumped on it. Had been stalking it for a few months on the AUC website mind you - the dealer was a little overstocked with 530d tourings at the time I think. Low miles means the warranty extension will be cheaper too.
