I made an appointment to have my car looked at (Allen Tire) because I noticed that my car had started to vibrate while driving. I did hit something in the road at night a week earlier. I took off my wheels only to find that my front left wheel was dented in the inside. So I order another wheel, had it installed a few days later only to realize that the problem had not been rectified...thus I went Allen Tire. They informed me that I needed to replace my Guibo (drive shaft coupler), which would cost more than 675.00 parts and labor.
Since I perfere to BMW to perform repairs, I made an appointment the next day. After checking in with my service tech... I went and waited in the lounge for a period of time. The tech came out and then asked why do I want to change this part, I went on to explain the the problem and that I was told that this part was broken by (Allen Tire).
The tech stated that he didn’t think that the part in question was damaged at all. He suggested that I needed after market wheel rings!
I could have wasted time out of my life and 600.00 if the technician had not been honest.
I did go purchase the parts that was suggested, spent only 21.75...problem fixed!
Thanks Matt, for your integrity!
