when i was in the market for a M3 i called ML and i got the "you need to spend 10,000 to get a reasnoble one" I bought mine from independent MC for 7.5K needed a bit of work but not 2500 pounds worth.
I live in newcastle so i was willing to travel to look for a car but ML were not that helpful.
Also, who saw the practical classic mag back in feb that featured the M3? Why are ML known to be experts in the cars if everyone complains about them?
Mosley motors are very helpful.

out of Munich Legends?
Every time I contact them for a price for parts or work it's always 'it's about' or 'all depends'.
Recently I visited and asked how much an Inspection 2 would be, Barneys response was "all depends how many shims I have to use for the valves".
This is not the first time Munichs have been unsure of prices, once they increased the price of the plug leads I was going to buy by 50 just before I went to collect them!(I went to Moseleys instead).
Any other specialist garage just give you a price, I don't want to take my car to a garage with a rough idea what I'm going to pay when it is only one task I am asking them to perform.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a go at the quality of their work, just the vague info they give.
Sorry for the outburst, and I know that lots of you use Munichs with no problem but I just needed to get that off my chest.
PaulD, how much do you pay Munichs for an inspection 2?
