Just sent them an email as their Partner Finder map is terrible. I searched for locations within 120km of my address (in Northern Ireland). The map (attached) shows four locations, Birmingham, West Bromwich, Aylesbury and Deeside! Even Mackies, which I've used, is closer than any of those four.

If there is nowhere “official” ZF approved in NI, and you’ve got to come over for someone you trust I can recommend Graham Martin Automotive near St. Helen’s, or Unit 20 obviously. Both have the ZF accreditation as far as I know.

When I just checked Driver Transmissions are on the list in NI?

Also not ZF approved but Gardiner Transmissions have been mentioned on other forums for BMW gearbox servicing had you discounted them?

Cheers Alex, but to be honest, I was just checking availability, to see if there was one in NI. Gardiner never appeared on the search I did, so that was probably because of the options chosen. I might contact them to see what services they offer, should the need arise.
