HI Have to recommend Auto Technic. There on Montgormery Road belfast serviced my car and fitted denison gateway on Thursday. Im well happy with service and price they are also Autologic dealers for any coding needs.They were recommended to me by Nigelo {forum member} . Ill definitely be using them again.

Yep get friendly with some of the guys if you are in for a service and I bet almost all of them do work at home at nights. BMW expertise for a fraction of the cost.

There is a guy outside Lisburn Harry Brown, Cockhill Road, Maze
and another near Banbridge, Huntly Road, I think he is called something like German motor works.
Hope this helps.

Hmm bad news and some good news.
Bad news is the hydro unit in my 330i cannot be repaired as it's different from the 4 cylinder ones.

Good news is that I emailed bmw uk and they are willing to offer 80% off the hydro unit as a gesture of goodwill, so it looks like I'm heading back to the dealer again but paying a lot less!!
