    do you do the fluid change to the M3 SMG system, (not the actual gearbox)? My car has 110k on it now and could probably do with a change having seen the odd video suggesting the fluid doesn't really last the lifetime of the car without deteriorating. How much and how long would it take?
    Thanks

    Shame haven’t got an answer

    A business should never be to busy to answer (even though Redish are very busy)- my customers get answers within the hour- sometimes I’m replying at 2-3am- it’s all about customer service and satisfaction- that’s why 4 years down the line I’m still in business through word of mouth

    Best bet is to ring/email them tbh

    I don't really see the point in them Sponsoring to gain business if they can't or won't reply to messages after nearly 10 months waiting for a reply tbh

    Very true- infact not replying is giving a negative impression of the company

    You might get an answer (then again he might not?!)

    Btw where abouts are you?

    I'm not far from Bristol and I know where their shop is as I've been there before a long time ago about a service 2 quote, it's just finding the time to go there. I thought it would be easier using this site to gain info from them rather than travel there.

    There is a brilliant specialist in Swindon called Autoworks- they really know their stuff and do lots of various M cars etc

    Worth calling them
