    ashtray removal ?

    Hi Bit of background I have ordered the little plastic tray to replace the ashtray as I have no use for it, Now........ perhaps I'm being a bit dumb but I cannot see how the Ashtray insert comes out (not the silver bit on the top but the plastic tray thing) surely it should just pop out or am I missing something obvious Any info greatly appreciated Cheers Chris

    Bmw Part Prices ?? are they having a laugh

    Really I have to be honest apart from the spares they were fine bearing in mind I was only in for an MOT , they provided a courtesy car all day cleaned my car inside and out and filled up both screen wash bottles Quite help full aswell (just tried to rob me on parts)

    Bmw Part Prices ?? are they having a laugh

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys it is much appreciated as I'm new to BMW ownership, I'm guessing because local BMW are fairly reasonable for MOT / Service work they load up the spare parts prices. lildonut really can't get much better than that cheers Thanks to all that replyed

    Bmw Part Prices ?? are they having a laugh

    OK thanks for the ideas sorry mods if I put this in the wrong section
  12. Hi, Just a question my car was over at BMW today having MOT and I asked them to quote for some replacement parts, now I've just got home and looked at the quote and ..... the tool kit knob is dead and and it keeps flapping down , they quoted for a tool kit plastic box at £70 ! surely that one bit is available ???? and a set of front mud flaps £188 does that sound about right because it seems a little (or a lot) excessive If you are still with me great !! any ideas where is the best genuine parts at a decent price ?? Thanks in advance Chris
