Any recommendations? E90 is coming up for 4th service (big one) and after checking with BMW warranty guys it seems I can take it wherever I want as long as they use bmw parts.

I checked technosport but seem a little pricey (bit more than the dealer) but also seem to have a packed schedule

George is very good though. If he's more than the dealer, just tell him by how much, perhaps he can match it?

Just take it to a dealer then? Nothing against George (used him in the past) but if you can get a BMW stamp, courtesy car (Technosport isn't really near a station) and some coffee for less than an indy then you'd be mad not to.

Depending on which part of north London you live, Highams Park Motors are very good with reasonable labour rates, you can supply all the parts too.

Taking it to bmw in borehamwood finally, reluctant but it’s really close to home and don’t need to take time off work to drop/collect

On the plus side they are the cheaper than specialist indys

Don't get the hate for main dealers, in your case it's cheaper, more convenient and you don't run the risk of getting a claim rejected.

He lied to my face and another member about a CSL he knew full well was crash damaged. Personally wouldn’t trust him as far as I can throw him, which incidentally would not be far
