    I can with Sytner Harold Wood else I would not use them. It depends on the dealer. My nearest dealer is not willing to provide this level of service so I don't use them. It many respects it is why people use the specialist independents because the quality of workmanship is higer and the cost is cheaper v's franchised dealers. Win win.

    What are the typical main dealer costs of the Oil & Microfilter / Major Service (with plugs + Plugs & brake fluid) these days? (I'm based in East Berkshire)

    I'm trying to comparing the Service Plan for 1x each of the above + an MoT (£1260 total) vs PAYG for the same.

    TIA

    Marc

    thanks. Couple of things:

    I didn’t know they did that, per dealer. Good info

    but...


    Having read many posts, I does seem there can be some variation between quoted price and reality!


    Perhaps my question is more Accurately:

    do the online prices match what you end up paying ? (Assuming no extras added)

    cheers

    Just dropped mine off for major service, I did try ring round a few different dealers but non would budge on the price.
    In the end I managed to get some money off a KDS and they waived the courtesy car charge.

    I'm from teesside too and have just used BMW Durham for my service as I was worried about my conversations with a member off staff and him telling me my car uses 5-30w at teesside.
    Durham seemed professional from the start to finish so I couldn't complain.

    I supplied all the parts. (Not direct from BMW but same parts) and there were no problems.
    Sparks and oil was changed for £202. Book stamped and keeping my fbmwsh up to date.

    I looked around at specialists but they were all more expensive. And also the few I contacted seemed to be really busy and didn't really get back to me I'm a timely manner. Strange times at the moment though.

    is 5-30 what the current M3's use? £202 seems like a very good price i though normally was ~£700. How much did you spend on parts, £500:muttley:.

    Just under £200 on parts. So quite a saving. If you got the microfilters they would be another £65 in parts.

    Teesside qouted just over £150 I'm not sure they know how long the plugs take to change .

    That is some saving. Makes you wonder how much of a markup there is.

    Just look at the price of the spark plugs direct from BMW !
    I've heard of them using standard NGK LKR8AP anyway without BMW markings.
