Picked the car up yesterday afternoon from Sytner Tamworth, cannot say a bad word about the service, from initial call to picking up the car all fixed under 36hours and 6 were lost when it us car didn't turn up on the back of a transporter until after lunch on the Thursday, so Sytner only had the car for 26 hours!
The same happened to mine at 82k

As a treat now the car is all fixed and behaving itself I've retrofitted USB on my professional headunit, don't know why I didn't do it 3 years ago!!

The the car promptly got a puncture!

Luckerly the winters were on the wear bars so put the alloys back on.

Changed jobs again, still piling on the miles now up to 125,000

Nothing to report, will need rear tyres in the next month and a service, picked up a set of 17" steels ready for the winter.

Looking at changing the car in the next couple of months, this ones a keeper and my wife is taking it over. I've spoken to TRL and another BMW is in my future, going 3 series tourer.

Gosh, Pobsey, I think you need a helicopter, not a car, for the mileage you do. :wink:

Looking forward to seeing your new steed when it arrives. :)

Mileage has dropped off massively, 136,000 wife now has it, had the exhaust flexi fail and that’s about it, got recalled for the fuse box issue going in on Monday for that.

My local dealer did a great job on a deal for my new car and got something for the old r50 Mini Cooper so I now drive a F31 330d shadow edition in mineral grey with black interior which goes for its first service next Tuesday at 17,000miles since 20th October 2017
