Service-how much oil ?

Going in for it's 60,000km service next week, have had an emailed quote from the stealer for the oil, it says 5.5 (quantity) x 24.95 euros (price per unit), surely they are not charging that per litre ?

Is 5.5 litres about right for a 320D ?

My 330d takes 7.5. I got spanked yesterday (and not in a good way!!!) for an oil change.

Next time I'm definately going to supply my own oil. The actual labour was only about £45 out of a total bill of £200!!!

Don't think it mentioned it on the invoice as I did look however will have a look on my way home (it's still on my back seat).

I'd agree, as long as it's the right 'type' of oil. Make a call to the dealer to see exactly what oil they want and ask them for the two prices 1) labour & oil supply and 2) labour only. Then cost the oil yourself online and see how much you save - might not be worth all the extra effort compared to the ease of letting the dealer do it.

co-incidence
Got my 335D serviced yesterday as well.

total bill was 249.11 but included the 2year brake fluid change. The amount of oil used was described as xxxx handy that eh, but the cost was £101 + VAt
Still 23 months and 1 week for 23,258 miles before any attention from new is a long time so thought 250 quid was Ok.

My invoice just states "fully synthetic oil". No volume or anything.

you need to go to the Classifieds section and go to Opie oils... Will save you a fortune.

Or Birds do it very cheap too ?

You're getting/got the 335D, so there is hope, if not you have a bigger beast.

yeah- i'm interested in the better fuel economy (and anticipated lower price) with the 330d.

Is BMW LL-04 the answer to my oil query? thanks.

just paid £215 for my oil service, 335i, i did it early i.e 2k miles on the computer too. Anyhow they kindly gave me a 1Litre top up, with a nice BMW holder with gloves, and a funnel. Until I realised they charged me 16 quid for it!
