Re: M140i Second Service

Just had my 2nd service which was brake fluid, and Mot which only flagged up a new wiper blade both for a very reasonable £160 at my local main dealer. They also put in a software update to fix the cold start up exhaust rattle As there was nothing physically wrong with it. That's not the second eng...

Re: Left the car running for hours

A couple of weeks ago after a long drive to visit a customer parked up, and the stop start activated. Got out of car, and when locking the car had two loud horn blasts. Didn't have a clue why, checked doors etc, then realised even though the engine wasn't running the ignition was still on and the en...

Re: Bmw rip off fees

Just had end of warranty/mot/brake fluid change.
Was £130 with vat.
They managed to get the second major service in too, within the original £299 service pack.

Re: Insured Warranty - Worth it?

I've RAC membership to cover me for other cars so no point in roadside assistance just for the BMW.

Re: Does a light come on if BMW don't do the MOT?

There is the Vehicle Inspection reminder yes which is for MOT and can be reset on the iDrive Can you reset it yourself through the iDrive? Yes you can mate. BMW forgot to reset mine after service and MOT, just the yearly inspection MOT. Noticed before driving off and it is the only one you can do y...

Much nicer design and quality than Maxton that's for sure.
Not cheap though.

Re: First service results

Interesting regarding the remap, and you prefer it now stock. Mines just had its second service, and my car was coded before the first, not remapped, but enhanced Bluetooth and few other things. Both services have not effected the coding. I asked on collection today whether there was any engine rema...

Re: Second major service under service pack, gobsmacked!!

Collected, all good. So second major service carried out after 18K instead of 20k per idrive, and one month before 3 years service pack expiry. Only slight disappointment is that one of the front tyres failed MOT due to a cut. All 4 are down to 3mm, the rears 2mm in the middle, so not too bad. Howev...

Re: Second major service under service pack, gobsmacked!!

The key thing is that they are having the car in for other works, namely brake fluid change (which is chargeable and I knew this) so the 'within 3K miles' applies. I'll get more info this afternoon when I pick her up. Garage is Huddersfield BMW. It must be national or they wouldn't do it, Huddersfie...

Second major service under service pack, gobsmacked!!

My car has just gone in this morning for end of warranty check/mot/brake fluid change at 35K miles and 35 months old. The second major service is due in approx 2.5K miles, so outside of the 36K mile/3 years of the service pack. The service department has just phoned me to advise that because the car...
