Low end price for oil change?

What's the low end for pricing on a dealer oil change? What's the lowest you've paid a dealer?

Find a local mechanic that has synthetic oil and get an OEM oil filter online cheap. It's just an oil change, that what I do between my free oil changes.

I do my own and it costs about 70 bucks through Tischer. My dealer charges about 100 bucks for the oil change but another 60 to "scan for codes and reset the service life". That 60 bucks is a total ripoff. Anyway it is super easy to do so if you have that inclination I would suggest you try it.

I always get this $69.99 coupon emailed to me, 7 qts. max, M and diesels extra. I've never used it because it's out of my way. My dealership sent me a $89.99 coupon with up to 5 qts. incl., stupid, huh? The only time I paid was at 1,800 (600 miles later than I wanted), and I asked for a discount so they charged me $73. They usually get $140 now.

Doing an oil change would be a no brainer for me, but if the dealer is making $20 in labor, and covers the unlikely screw up I have no problem letting them do the work.
