Hi folks

This is my first post on here so hello first and fourmost, however my first post is not a good one. Had the steering lock fault flair up on my 08 1 series at mileage 44k. Initially car wouldnt start then did after 5 minutes trying, wa fine for a few days then absolutely dead, would not start whatsoever, only the amber warning tho. Anyway towed to BMW service centre and they have confimed new steering column. They will cover the parts but have to fork out the labour costs to the tune of 330 which includes the diagnostics. BMW took the cost of the parts with no hesitation. Is this about the norm for this problem or should i push for getting the labour costs covered aswell?

Thanks in advance
