1st oil leak

Post by Andyk » 03 Sep 2014, 17:13

Was hoping it was going to be a little longer after ownership that 3 months but over the last 2 months had a oil leak that has been getting worse...gutted.........So booked her into my BMW specialist today for him to take a look....................last time I had a bill from him was £1600 for the head gasket on the M3 so was dreading the outcome.....

Well to my suprise it was good news....Who ever serviced her last fitted the oil filter and didn't put the rubber seal on so the oil was leaking through it...So a new oil filter and seal and filled up with oil was all she needed..................and all for the sum of £26.....See sometimes there is good news from the garage...PHEW.... :-bd
