If you can wait for delivery, Autodoc and get the App to match your car for everyday discounts but usually top out at 21/22% but there prices are extremely competitive and will have factory original parts. Of course a very friendly reasonably hourly rated garage helps too if you can't do stuff your self..... Lemforder, Meyele, Hella, Pierburg…….

It's the extra 'standard service scope' that really grates with me, granted it's only £20, but that's to check the fault codes and update the idrive, something which should be done anyway. That and the vehicle check service which is another £70, mines in for it's big service in October, everything should be checked then anyway, but still have to have the vehicle check plus the standard service scope. Going to be over £600 for that lot, considering using a specialist but there are none close by.

Just to update have just come back from Newhall Caldy. checked I Drive in car and have quoted this

MOT £45.00

Labour £72.00

Oil 6.5  £64.95

Oil filter £17.58

Flush £11.00

Total with VAT £243.64

Asked about flush and about sucking oil out of dipstick and they said they recommend doing the flush

I did mention about BMW value service price listed as £260(does that include vat) plus half price mot , they did not seem bothered.

where would you go.tim.

Personally I don't expect an engine that's been run on fully synthetic oil to need a flush but I definitely think sucking it out via the dipstick is a poor substitute to draining.

So they weren't bothered when you mentioned BMW were offering to charge you £40 or so more?Slightly confused! I'd still use Newhall over HJ or Williams.
