Ok bit of an update on this... The dealers took out the gearbox and can see that the clutch and flywheel are worn with high points on the flywheel. They contacted BMW for a warranty repair and this has since been rejected because of the mileage on the car (47k). What are your thoughts on this? Can anyone explain to me how a flywheel gets damaged? Is it possible that the clutch can cause the damage to the flywheel or is it the other way round with the fauly flywheel causing damage to the clutch plate?
My thoughts are go back and argue again... I was told by the dealers here that the only time BMW warranty should turn around and say no is when it hits over 60K............ at 47K to be refused is down and out rude TBH..........
Mine was not rejected at 34K...... but mine was done in Belgium they seem to be more sympathetic with warranty repairs here, where as in the UK you have to argue for it.
Start questioning them and argue that you are not happy about being refused a warranty repair on a low mileage car with a typical BMW Defect and in no way is it driver error, therefore they HAVE to replace it!
