BMW 320i engine fault

Asked by John Yong

My 2006 BMW 320i has only travelled 100,000km and it has had an engine fault with smoke coming out of the car, and now there is a transmission problem. BMW want to $6000-plus to repair it. What should I do?

Take it to an independent mechanic who specializes in BMWs or European brands and have them assess the problem for you. The quote from the BMW dealer would suggest that they want to replace the gearbox, but an independent mechanic might be able to repair it at a much-reduced cost, and even if the gearbox does have to be replaced it will be cheaper.
