    Thanks for the comment. I'll do next time. Do you know what parts wouldn't touch the warranty?

    Yeah that was what I was thinking. I think the car was sitting rotting since imported from Japan and has not been serviced until I bought it. Then I drove +10,000km without service which is bad. Learnt life lesson through mistakes and your comment.

    You are absolutely right. I watched so many youtube clips of how to do DIY and researched where to get the parts but as my car has to be serviced for mechanical warranty I couldn't even try. I'm with autosure and need to be serviced every 12,000km. They have accepted the claim.

    I think this is it. The last service this car had done was 2017 and I bought this car in October 2018. It should have been serviced before I bought it but it's my mistake as well not having checked all that. I was bmw newbie.. didn't know about much

    Hi guys, I dropped my car 116i 2012 in BM workshop for service and I got this. Drive belt and pulley cracked and require replacement $200.00 Air filter dirty $52.00 Spark plugs worn $260.00 Micro filter dirty $112.00 Wiper blades poor $158.00 Coolant expansion tank and rear connector leaking $? Excess ?? $350.00 Inc GST I bought this car 6months ago at 52000 km ( 63000 km now). Is it common to replace those parts at this odometer? Just wasn't expecting to replace all that after 6 months. Any thoughts? Thanks,

    I bought this 116i E87 2012(52000km) for $17995 and $1550 for 3 yrs warranty. This is the only car I’ve got and plan to keep this car for 3-5 yrs. Yeah i guess ill just go to workshop to get the service done and learn more about the car step by step.

    I see. much appreciated for your knowledge. So is this mean those guys who does DIY do not have Mechanical warranty??
  12. Hey guys, I recently bought bmw 116i E87 and found out that there's no bluetooth and navigation function on idrive. As it's imported from Japan, the radio is also not working. I called autogravity for installing the bluetooth and they say it's gonna cost about 1k and navigation for 2.5k. I find this too expensive. Any alternatives? Thanks,

    If I keep the receipts of parts that I bought and I replace by myself, would they decline the claim in the future? I don't know... feel like warranty is quite annoying.

    I live in Henderson but don't mind go up to north or down in south or in city centre if it's reliable independants. Maybe the independant that allows me to bring parts will be preferred. I looked upon forum and heard BM workshop is reliable and professional. Any other recommendation? Cheers
