Because it is an official recall now as to a QE main dealers should take more notice of you. If you don’t like the response from one dealer try another one.

I've got three within 15 miles so that's good. I hear what you're saying about escalation from QE to recall, only my VIN isn't covered by the VOSA list so I might be lucky or might have a little battle on my hands.
Thanks for the advice.

If anyone is in the West Country area then I can highly recommend Westerly BMW (Dorchester) who this morning fitted my car into their workshop with no notice, gave me a loan car with fuel in and completed the repair.

This would never happen at the Coopers BMW....

Just a heads up, I've recently bought X5 40d and I phoned Wollaston bmw Northampton 3 times asking if there is anything outstanding for the car and Synter Leicester once and every time was told there's nothing outstanding. Lucky I own my own garage so after two weeks of owning it I had a chance to do a full service on it and I found grease on propshaft joint so I took a video of it and booked it in with Wollaston for vhc. Yesterday I went and asked them to check it while they doing vhc and they ended up replacing it but when the girl came to tell me what's been done and collect payment she said it was outstanding recall on my car for propshaft so they did it free of charge. She had no an as to why they didn't say anything when I phoned. So if you unsure book it for vhc don't relay on phone call.
