2. 2009 (owned since 2012)
3. Black metallic
5a plastic hinge in boot for roof tray (2015)
5c part laid by dealer since I argued that I shouldn’t have to pay the full cost since BMW changed the design to included the net
5d no problem since
6a Car wouldn’t hold manual when selected in the manual mode reverting to drive. I drive the car always in manual via the paddles (2019). Needed a new shift lever handle.
6c Cost £695 inc the £120 fault diagnosis
6d back to perfect
7a) Boot light became intermittent one the winter and on hot days post lockdown the "soft close" on the boot did not operate meaning the the roof could not be folded down (the only reasons for having the car!)
7b) Resolved finaly! Its taken Lloyd BMW in Newcastle 1 month to resolve the issue. They replaced a junction box then couldn't programme the car so replaced a fuse box.That still didnt work so I think they have fitted a new motor to the soft close lock and replaced the wiring. (To note I am aware that there is an issue with the boot closing due to short wiring but BMW confirmed that this wasn't the issue here).
7c) They quoted £750 which included 2 hours of investigation time and to be fair to them they stood by that quote and someone (BMW or Lloyd) has paid the extra parts and labour.
8a) Control rod snapped on the self levelling headlights
8c) Cost £55 (I has it done when Lloyd fixed the boot lock since my local guys couldn't source the part during lockdown.
