after some advice please.....
i recently paid a BMW specialist £24 to get my drain holes cleared on my convertible,when i collected it-after they gave it a full valet and toped up the power steering fluid(yes all that for £24!!) they said the fluid was slightly black and said they think the power steering pump is on its way out-when i start the car,there is a wine,almost like a jet plane noise when it taxes down the run way if you know what i mean-it usualy goes after a long run.Ive been looking at some on ebay which come with a 18month warranty like this one-
BMW 3 SERIES E46 POWER STEERING PUMP LF30 PART NO 1094965 - RECONDITIONED | eBay
the garage quoted me £362 + vat plus fitting with a genuine part or £162 + vat plus fitting for an aftermarket part-any help i would apreciate
