F30 320d Gearbox dead

RE: F30 320d Gearbox dead
Take the car to an ARC.. Just had excellent service from Alberante ARC on the LCI and they did a great job..

Look I am not sure who your insurer is, but we pay A LOT for insurance on the 3 cars but I gladly pay it so that I get to say where my car gets fixed, which is the ARC and nowhere else.

Previous experience with repair shops for me have been horrible, down right horrible.. All those cars are sold as they were never the same again even for a minor bumper spray it was a messup..

Talk to your insurer if the damage is mechanical the car must not be at a panel shop!

All the best!

I'm trying to get them to move the car to Sandton Auto ARC, it is on their list of approved panel beaters

RE: F30 320d Gearbox dead
Apologies for the short answer, trying to get things done when you are out of the country seems to be a mission and a half. I have asked the insurance to get the car to an ARC. Hopefully they will do that tomorrow and crossing my fingers that Renew-it has not started working on the car. The car is out of motor plan, but after reading the horrible experiences from the fellow fanatics, I told them I do not want anyone to work on the car if not BMW approved. I was waiting for them to ask me about whether the car is still under plan or not, I was going to give them s**t as I do not see how that has got anything to do with them. Premiums are the same whether the car is under plan or not, so why treat me different because my plan has expired.
Thank you for all the advice guys, will keep you posted

Renew-it claims they have started working on the car already, So I told them to stop and put everything back on the car. rage

They probably said that so they don't lose business.
Where are you going to take it to?

my thought exactly, I told my insurer to move it to Sandton Auto ARC by end of business today.

The more I fight to have my car moved from Renew-it, more information start to unfold. From the looks of it, there is absolutely nothing wrong with my gearbox. I have the assessor's report and now the story has changed. they were only going to replace the underbody covers and some exhaust clamps, re-spray the front bumper and a whole lot of funny things which I don't see how they could have been damaged by one small rock laying in the road dunno anymore

RE: F30 320d Gearbox dead
Is it outsurance by any chance?

One other thing... if any of the directors there at renewit get involved and take it upon themselves to send the car to the ARC because they have whatever relationship with them... don't buy their story... if it does come to it- at least u know they've tried that crap before...

End of the day... push with your insurer- threaten to take it to the highest level. And take it there if need be. Pointless paying insurance premiums only to get shafted with horrible service when it comes to claiming
