Theres a charge list somewhere online for what they will bill you for. If its with Alphabet through BMW I have heard they charge £65 per wheel, which is probably cheaper than elsewhere.


This might help with other bits

I handed a car back to BMW with some damage on the wheels (not as much as that like). The guy who came to evaluate showed me what the bill would be, but then BMW wrote to me that they would just waive the costs. Either way, I think it's definitely cheaper and worth the risk to hand it back as is,

Will be about £130-140 per wheel to diamond cut them, so yeah may be cheaper to pay the fees or take a chance.

130-140 very high

stoney I know you are south London but worth giving these guys a call. extremely competitive and fresh outfit… not worth going with the cowboys who do it on your drive

How olds the car? They seem to have corroded around the centre cap which seems odd

It will state in your PCP contract your usually allowed wear and tear with VW finance it was something like 3 cm scratch else its 50 quid a wheel.. It was BCA that came to pick my ex missus's up and the wheels were fucked, the car was a true representation of our relationship, badly treated and wheels falling off.

That aisde he was sound just said forget about it. Lost a 2nd key as well and he waived that also which I would imagine they could charge what the fuck they wanted.

Long and short you might get lucky so I wouldn't bother doing em pre handback, if they bring it up say you will do and bring the car back (in the contract it should say its something like 5 days to repair yourself)

Thanks v much all (especially toocan) I’ll hand back as is. Here is the rear bump though. What might they charge me for this ? Think I may be best getting this fixed before ?

Could probably get dolly'd out that for 60 quid. If it was me I'd probably get that done or at least properly costed. Dont use a franchise like dent master your local garage or 2… it feels (im no expert) that when you see a fault like that you look at everything else in a more scruntanous way as the humans we are so could pre empt a longer list of shit

Doing some media work for BMW Park Lane now. They threw me the keys to the new X4M to see what it drove like.

One of these nearly killed TRhamza recently The crash that could've killed me. Eek

I did quite fancy the X3M, but chopped the M135i in for a pony spec X3 20d M Sport with some nice extras instead. Got a bairn on the way and need to start being sensible… for a while.

LOL

I think the X3M is the better looking car for sure.
