    Last Thursday I took my 2011 BMW 335i in to be serviced. They performed a brake fluid exchange service and found a leak in the coolant expansion tank, so they removed and replaced that as well. By Sunday I noticed the engine running very loud, and even overheating while driving (though the...

    Hiya guys So today after pulling my hair out over my beloved X5 I had a guy turn up to look at my key as that was the fault coming up as to why it wouldn't start. He looked at the key and wrote a temporary chip to see if the car would start before cutting a new key for me, the car turned...

    ALL COMPANIES INVOLVED WILL NOT BE NAMED as responsibility is undetermined! I recently had my 335i remapped by a mobile remapper. The work was carried out in a carpark, in the rain, in the dark (I am aware I am partly responsible for even thinking that it should go ahead!) The guy however...
