That's a rather sceptical view to take, BMW main dealers wouldn't stoop to such underhand tactics surely. :wink:

I think we should have a Xmas game.

Guess the quote for work :D

I guess £200 - £250 + VAT.

If it needs a service and an MOT, I revise my guess to £600 + VAT :twisted:

just back from my winter check I'm going to do all the work my self in my man shed , main bottom nsf ball joint exessive play ,anti freeze only down to -7 degrees, advisories, front and rear brake disks lipped and corroded, wiper blades smearing, front suspension perished and weak, neads replacing, only 1 green light remaing to next service, gives me some thing to do on these winter nights, on the plus side she had a very good wash and clean inside and out and I got a nice BMW brolly all for £24.32

So, how much are you going to save by doing those jobs yourself? They surely slipped in a 'little' quote, didn't they? Btw, the service indicator lights can be all brought back on with a simple length of wire. Search for the thread on the forum.
You got a wash, brolly, and a list of jobs to keep you busy for the winter, for a reasonable price. Wins all round.
Keep us informed with the jobs. And pics would be a bonus.

I guess that means that it must have been free. And as my £250 was the lowest bid - I win :D :cheers
