Can someone explain to me in details regarding the difference between oil change and oil service? I am assuming they do more check up and stuff with oil service. It would be nice if someone knows exactly what they are doing with oil service as they are charging big $$$.

If your information is valid and correct(not that im saying its not), $70~$80 makes perfect sense. I also plan on doing oil change once I hit 3~4k miles. Didn't know BMW maintence is that expensive. With my other cars, oil change was $19.99 at jiffy lube!
Time for a "self-service" I guess. Oil change is easy anyway.
