    Thought so, beware Smiths BMW in N. Wales - give them a wide berth . Rip off merchants.

    Well, fitted and coded now all working. Just got back from indys. a whopping £110 for coding, nearly fainted! Not too impressed or does that sound about right ?

    Excellent service from Quarry, new unit arrived this morning, only ordered it 1pm yesterday. Will I be able to fit it myself then drive down to indy on Monday for coding or leave it and let them fit it and code it?

    After much deliberation and searching decided to go for a new one from Quarry motors, Bmw specialist and breakers, for £360. Dealer wanted over a grand. Will have to get it coded though. Given that they are prone to breaking, decided against a used one. Apparently it was the pre charge pump circuit that was the problem, Bloody things.

    Quick update.. Decided to go the repair route with ECU testing ltd. Quoted me £150 & vat for dsc type. No fee if not repairable, Two year warranty if it is. All packed up and ready to post in the morning. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the advice chaps.

    Yep, codes read, sensors replaced,money spent. Trouble is Control units with dsc are very hard to come by. E-mailed BBA Reman.. no reply yet. Gonna try ringing them tomorrow. Tried Parts Gateway , no luck. There's a few new ones about for around £350 that'll need coding but hoping to find a used one or get mine fixed.

    Ok thanks. I'll give them a try.
  12. In need of a bit of guidance from those in the know here. Had the dreaded triangle,abs and brake orange warning lights illuminated last week so took them to my local indy for a diagnostic. He read the codes and replaced the pressure switch. Lights still lit He then replaced the brake light switch. Lights still lit. After further investigation he suspects the abs control unit is on the way out. So..£250 lighter, thoroughly pissed off and no nearer a solution. Anyone know of a second hand Abs control unit with dsc available?
