Given the OP has an X5 now, that would be an unlikely post.

Not saying they don't have their faults, but this guy lives in a caravan and did exactly what I wanted.

When I met him at my house to pay, he said "Nice car," and I said "It's not mine mate, company car." (It isn't). He said "I'd have charged more if I'd seen that," to which I said "Why do you think it wasn't on the drive when you came round." We smiled, shook hands, and he went on his way.
Glad to hear you're happy with the work. Hopefully no faults will emerge and you can chalk it up as a good experience.
