Is there any particular reason he would like BMW to do the repair, also have you been given a price comparison between your quote and BMW's?
Thank you. so the first thing you are going to want to do is get your own quote from a reputable person or garage. Then see what his quote is from BMW. You will also want him to show a copy of his quote. There is always the chance they will be about the same or even possibly less! However, if he provides you with a quote which is substantially more than yours then you can say that you are happy to put the value of your quote towards his payment. E.g. you bet a quote for £100 and his is £200 then you can offer to pay £100 towards his £200 bill. There is no "law" surrounding this and if he didn't agree with this approach he would have to take you to small claims court to get the extra £100. That would be an overkill response to this situation. However, I would advise that if you do this then you have acted reasonably as long as you use a reputable person. However, you may be surprised and find that BMW's quote is cheaper than a private garage. I hope this has helped.
I would be obliged if you could Click the 5 stars at the top of the webpage (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge.
You are very welcome. I hope that you and family are safe during these very difficult times.
