Good morning all, Was hoping some of you knowlegable chaps (or chapesses) could offer a second opinion on the below. I took my much loved and maintained e61 2005/55plate 525d msport to my new BMW stealer in Coventry (Sytners) for her routine service (143k miles) and this is what the robbin gits came back with: Requires new EGR valve Â£241.50 + vat(even though just replaced along with other thormostat in Jan 12. see other topics) Auto Gearbox oil change and new seal Â£370.00+vat!!!!! New rear suspension wishbones (both sides) due to apparent knackered bushes, and new n/s/f track rod + alinement Â£1153.00+vat (not noticed any issues!!!) Complete new pads & discs front / rear Â£678.00+vat (even thought all checked 100% by previous dealer in Jan 12 when thermostat replaced!!!) Apparent engine oil leak from inlet manifold Â£322.00+vat (no leaks ever noticed on drive/ no excess consumtion etc....) As you can see, the above list totals to a princely sum of cash, that even if required, i believe the prices to be over inflated and mildly taking the p*ss! Q1) Has anyone else experienced issues as above with dealers trying it on? Q2) Surely some of the faults would be noticable and spotted by other dealer in Jan 12? Q3) Even allowing for worst case senario......Am I the only one shocked by the prices? I look forward to the associated rants and constructive feedback
