A Good Day at the Shop!

So with a yellow engine CEL on the wife’s 2014 83,000 mile 328i I prepared for a $1,000+ visit to the dealer. But wait ...... thermostat stuck open ...... covered by a 10 year 120,000 mile extended warranty. New thermostat, coolant flush ..... NO CHARGE !

While there the Dealer told me we needed new brake pads on the rears ...... rotors were fine? Offered to replace the rear pads for $535 ...... uh thanks ...... maybe later. ........ drove right to my favorite tire store and got new lifetime warranty pads for $110 per axle ..... $10 to install with a coupon !

What I call a good day in the maintenance life of a BMW!
