Glow Plug Fault E53

I've been told by my local garage (not BMW) that all 6 glow plugs are faulty? It starts up fine even at minus7, a bit grumbly and uneven for about 30 secs but then fine. I get the PRE-HEAT message but I thought that was the fuel heater rather than the glow plugs. To have all 6 out I'm sure it must be something common to them all, fuse or relay etc. Someone else mentioned to me it's probably the module on the side of the engine, for about 120.00, but he also said don't worry the engines designed to start at minus20 with NO glow plugs! Any ideas what it could be? Car starts fine but when I'm told something aint working, I want it fixed, sad I know! Cheers
