I expect it's geographical, round here I'd have to wait for them to order a 10mm spanner in, never mind the parts.
We’ve got several big auto parts dealers around here, and the garage I’ve used is quite big (even though it’s ‘local’), so I think it’s probably just geographical luck, as you say.

Re: Meanwhile...

Blimey, that was quick! They picked it up on Tuesday, examined, quoted and ordered the parts Wednesday, work completed this morning. Online JIT ordering FTW. I’ve used a non-BMW dealer garage this time. Not a huge difference in cost but a quicker turnaround- our local dealer workshop was quoting up...

I know we have Brompton experts here and I'm sure we have wheel-assembly (and hence rim-tape) experts. What should I have done?
