So the bill is in....

£960 for inspection II, MOT, break fluid and fit alternator.

£470 inc VAT for OEM BMW alternator

I’ve got a few little niggles but I think that will be a trip to the zed shed!
I’m taking mine in for Ins2 on Friday and leaving it at my friends garage to do next week whilst I’m away on holiday, it’ll be interesting to see what he charges me, I’m having my MOT done too :driving:

H/Seats,extended storage,BB Bypass, Cruise

Silver Grey Z4MC
OEM CSL’s, Supersprint, Gruppe M, Aero’s, Eibachs, Carbon Roof, strut brace, carbon rear spoiler, Nav/DVD, Imola Leather, H/Seats, Cup Holders

I thought DW was around £400 ins1 / £600 ins2 ? I know with a previous ZM there was a invoice from there for ins1 & that was a smidge under £400 :?
add £40 for MOT + £40 for brake fluid then labour to fit that alternator looks expensive :cry:

That doesn't seem too bad. My Inspection 2 was around £1200 I think, and that included a refurb on one brake caliper.

Just put mine in for an Inspection 2 today.

Dunno how the previous owner got it to pass MOT.

Good news is that none of the valves needed shimming!!
