My X3 is finally back!

Back in April I had the second annual service booked on my car – and the dealership found axle damage that prevented them allowing me to drive it till it was resolved. That wouldn’t be such an issue were it not for the pandemic, which meant spare parts were unavailable!

Worse, when the dealership did eventually get a replacement right rear axle shaft, they determined that in fact both rear axle shafts have to be replaced – so another six week wait to get hold of a second part (a big shame here they weren’t ahead of the game with ordering!)

But finally this week, after involving higher management, the parts arrived and have been fitted, the car has been fully detailed – and what’s more the steering wheel vibration annoyance I’ve had since day one, has been resolved.

While the loaner X3 was fine, it is very nice to have my own car back, with it’s very potent engine, head-up display, etc …

Now back home in our garage …
