I've got a meeting Tuesday morning mate otherwise I'd have popped over. Frigging long way to go for 3/4 hour but guess it's the leak investigation that's fueling the effort.

Wow, all the way to stockport from London, these guys must be good. I've just been checking their prices out on their website, as I'm on my 1st BMW and have no idea of main dealer servicing costs, I was just wondering how Darren Wood compare to main dealer service costs?? They are about an hour away from me, so might give them a go when my e90 330d is due for service in October

From the top of my head their labour hourly charge is half that of a dealer plus you know who's working in your car - anything he doesn't know about BMW isn't worth knowing.
