Did the Indy use original parts?
£320 incl parts and labour? Impressive.
I had an indy replace my front discs and pads but they did a **** job as there's a rumble under braking at speed and the brake sensitivity is never the same. I never really know whether I'll end up doing an emergency stop when I tap the brakes. (slight exaggeration, but it's annoying).
Get what you pay for I guess..
Posted about it on here before, and they probably didn't clean it when changing the brakes and left some air in the system.
Yup. DW MOTORWORKS. Very very good. Watched them do the work and everything was done correctly.
FU and your honest, high-quality independent garages
Lol. I was all set to do it myself and called them on the off chance. I've used them before and can't fault them at all. Plus the workshop is an awesome Aladdins cave of bmw bits!
A colleague has put me in touch with "a guy from the gym who works on Porsches in his garage for €15/hr". I'll take the Chevy Spark there and keep you posted
That's good news, mine have been sitting on 3,200 miles for ages now and I suspect they'll need doing soon. It's in BMW for some warranty work and a service in a couple of weeks so I'll get them to measure everything and if they need doing, pass it back to Dean to get them done Already been quoted £4xx from someone using Zimmerman and Textar, but I'd rather use BMW parts.
Friend has an E60 M5 and isn't keen on the BMW price for a new clutch. Any recommendations on other specialists with a rough price?
Where's he based?
South West Wales, but will go anywhere tbh.. especially along the M4.
From my calculations the indie did the install for around £35, makes it almost worthwhile driving up for the day
Lol. Something tells me they're just able to get the parts for a substantial discount.
Hi mate, have dug a bit more into this. I think the model I'm looking at is an N43, not an N46. The N43 doesn't throw up anywhere near as many timing chain issues when I google it. Is there anything else on this engine I should be weary about?
Scrap that, sounds like the N43 is even worse...
I’m now a BMW owner again. Pics to follow once I’ve tidied it up a bit and it’s a bit nicer outside, but it’s a 2005 130i in Le Mans Blue with a dodgy M badge stuck on the back and a misted up headlight.
Welcome (back) aboard! Hell of a change from the m3 and 911. Why such a big step?
Well... courtesy of the folks on this forum reinforcing the lack of logic... I've just bought a BMW M4 Competition Pack! Yas Marina Blue with Silverstone Leather!
The numbers of course made absolutely no sense... but whatever, live once and all that... should pick it up on Friday! Be prepared for pics and posts
Bryn Motors, behind the BMW Garage in Swansea. Speak with Gary. He done the clutch and dual mass flywheel in my 6 series, been taking BMW's there for years, can't fault them.

Woop! Did you try an M2?
Can anyone recommend a good Indy in and around the ha7, NW London area?
