Most parts 'operatives' don't know themselves, I spent several visits to my dealers in 09 trying to show them how to use their own parts computer, I ended up on the other side of counter looking for the springs part number section which none of them new existed!!
Sometimes, when I say to those tyre fitters, "the guys on the BMW forum said that its ok" ...they look at me funny and say, "ohh you know, these people don't understand how things work, you can't put normal tyres on, as the suspension and chassis hasn't been designed for normal tyres".....
