Main dealer prices for oil brake fluid service

Looking to shop around next week from a few local dealers for oil and brake fluid service so just wondering what sort of price i'm looking at.

I just did an oil change myself 2k miles ago but need to get it done again via dealer to keep warranty i guess as idrive says oil change due soon. Not a problem as when i changed it total cost to me was 50 quid. I reckon around 200 for oil service from dealer? Maybe another 100 odd for brake fluid, so 300ish?

Same as doc_ab,

oil service, brake fluid (remembered this time ) and microfilter all done at same time with me supplying oil for 184 odd, again at Sytner (Chigwell this time).

I didn't get a quote with them supplying oil but IIRC their price is something like 16+VAT a litre...

Perfect I'l shoot for the same price with me supplying oil.

Toxic was that price with you supplying just oil and they supplied brake fluid and micro filter?

Do you guys just buy two 4.5 litre packs of oil?

Yes, I supplied engine oil only. They supplied the brake fluid and the MF.

As for volume, I'm not sure what the 335i takes. My 335d needs something like 7.5litres, so I bough 2 4litre containers (they were on offer at Halfords at the time and each one came with a 1litre top-up bottle too).

Failing that, check out opie oils.

Goto to your local BMW Independant Garage. Your warranty will still be valid as long as the BMW independant uses OEM parts, see here:

http://www.autologichessle.co.uk/franchisedealer.phtml

As long as they use oil which is BMW LL04 spec (i think) then its all good.

My 335d was 135 inc VAT for oil service at Autologic in hessle. This includes them suppling the LL04 oil (7.5 litres).

Was that including brake fluid and or microfilter?

Wonder how much a brake fluid change is on its own from dealer. Going to call round on monday.

Just phoned Fawdington today for a quote on Oil service (me to supply the oil) and brake fluid service (dealer to supply fluid) and was quoted 150.

Breakdown was 100 for the brake fluid change, and 50 for the oil filter and labour for oil change.

My BF change was 85 in November.
Oil was about 180 all in.
Pretty much the same as any Vauxhall/Honda/VW to be honest.

not so relevant to garage prices but I bought 2 litres of brake fluid for about 20 , went to my mates garage & within half an hour the job was done. Bought the discs & pads for approx 275 ( yellow pads) where as a dealer would want probably 800

Never going to the dealer again unless I really have too.

Just bought a detachable towbar (westfalia with the 13 pin dedicated electric kit which is what bmw would have fitted) for 400 - dealer would want minimum of 1200 for this job.

These cars aren't to bad price wise if you can handle a few jobs yourself. It's the Labour that's the killer.

Looking to book my car into national tyres for an oil change 60 for castrol edge. Not worth doing myself.

I do think that some BMW owners have more money than sense sometimes. Not having a dig but I think the cars are overpriced, high depreciating assets that cost top dollars to keep going.

Not being bitter or jealous (I could afford a new BM ) but just couldn't justify the cost.

Being self employed helps so when you get a day free you can do jobs on the car & the savings is like being paid if you get my drift.

jimmylad,

It depends if the car is in warranty (OEM or extended). I think once the OEM warranty has expired and it becomes a false economy to have an extended one then it makes 100% sense to DIY/use and independent. However, if you're in warranty or just coming off the back of one it helps to maintain the "FBMWSH" in case you run into a situation where you would expect a bit of "goodwill" from BMW.

I for one am keeping my car in the franchised dealer network for the time being as I have a year of OEM warranty left to run. After that I will probably take out a BMW (Mondial??) warranty for as long as the premiums and excesses are reasonable.

Once that period is up then I will move to DIY/independents...

good point toxic nerve.......

my mate bought a 56 plate 525i same reg as mine from a dealer for simlilar monies & his is supposedly got the extended warranty
but when he goes back to the dealers with issues they always fob him off. He is the same guy who has his owns garage who did the work on mine but cant do work on his cos of the warranty. He paid 160 for his brake fluid change & I paid 20 & he will have made just as good a job as the monkeys at the dealers.

I just had an oil service and brake fluid change done today at Benham, Wolverhampton, cost 275 all in. Brake fluid change on it's own, was priced at 74 + vat.
