I just got two quotes for installing a tow bar and 13pin electrics on my Beamer. Dealer quoted over £3k and the UK's biggest tow-bar supplier Towbar Express quoted £674.19. No prizes for guessing who gets the work even though BMW will probably use it as a reason to void the window wiper warranty if I need it.

Sounds about right. I nearly bought a new BMW 325i in the mid 80s in Bavaria but when the sales guy wanted I think £1000 to paint the chrome black & take off the numbers on the back I declined.

Salespeople and targets. Always a variable in life.

We has a naughty rather than rude name for them in a previous company.
Coin operated qualifying tools.

We led them with "no is also an answer" and from there how do you get to a successful and mutually agreeable yes which would result in a longer term relationship.
Not certain that works so much anymore.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.
