Re: BMW Z1 @ Vintage Mecanic (TV series)

I usually state with every car that they are not allowed to fill up the screenwash before the service, if they do it anyway i make them take it of the bill...

So annoying that they do that.

Good service, seems you have the right garage as well to do it your self.

Re: Fuel Pump

To access the fuel pump, don't you need to remove the lining in the boot?

Or is there a better way, just curious, as I was told by my local garage that a fuel pump repair was going to be very costly due to the extra work to access it

thnx
