This has been an age old question question of main dealer vs independant where to get your car serviced. I am at the crossroads of which route to go down and just wanted to get views of fellow members
My car is a 2008 and is on 112k miles and has had full BMW SH. I tend to change my oil/filers every 10k or yearly whichever comes first. In my SH the last log was at 78k miles about year and half ago where it had a major 3rd oil service done (oil/oil filter/air/microfilters)
I have BMW extended warranty on mine and terms now state I can get my car serviced by a VAT reg garage who uses genuine parts.
I rang my dealer that I use and quoted me £381.65 for 3rd oil service (oil/oil filter/fuel/air/microfilters)
My vehicle check is also due which is additinal £97.75 so in total £479.74
Now I have priced genuine parts up and not sure how much my local independant would charge (need to give him a ring tommorow)
Oil Filter £16.94 inc VAT
Fuel Filter £39.16 inc VAT
Air Filter £46.66 inc VAT
Micro Filter £36.90 inc VAT
Oil 5w 30 (£60 inc VAT)
Total for parts only - £199.66
Vehicle check - not sure how much my indi would charge
Labour? - again not sure
. I am pretty sure of my independant compentacy as I have used him before
So which route would you go for?
