There is something wrong with my DVD Navigation Unit, I cannot load maps anymore. I'e tried all the cables at the back of the drive to no avail.
Has anyone used:

Or can anyone recommend someone/somewhere that can take a look at repair the drive.

I used these guys to repair a similar fault on my 6 series BMW and they did a fantastic job and quick turnaround.

or here's another option in London

£275 plus vat to replace/repair the DVD drive. Don't really use it but it would be nice for it to be working again.

Does it seem expensive? No idea if this is a good price or not.

I've seen a couple for 400 quid but would be nervous they may have a similar problem to my unit.
