Oil service/oil service & microfilter

Recommended Posts

My 2019 520D is flashing up for an oil service in the next 900 miles. I've been shopping around all the local dealers and it's only a couple of quid difference.

£200 for oil and £351 for oil and microfilter at my usual dealer. Which one do I actually need? The car's at 12,242 miles at the minute.

I've no doubt whatsoever if I asked BMW they'd advise on the dearer one so I was wondering which service any of you guys had carried out at this stage. I'm presuming this is it's first service?

Usually it’s the Oil & Microfilter service if you were to call them and book. The microfilter really bumps the cost of the service up.

You're not kidding! It's a huge jump. I've read that other people have managed to haggle but I've not really got anything to throw at them.

Just got to take it on the chin I suppose. Thankfully this will be the most expensive service item it will need before it goes back.

I have  never gone to a dealer for any servicing due to crazy prices . I have just had my brake fluid done dealer where asking £98 and my local BMW specialist it was £45 . Just for info if was it first service and still under warranty.

Yes, it's the first service and it's under manufacturer's warranty. I know I could go elsewhere and as long as genuine parts are used it wouldn't void the warranty, but for me I'd rather pay the extra and go to the dealers. Should anything go bang then the excuse or argument isn't there for them to try wriggle out of paying out. 

With my older cars in the past it has been indy all the way.

I agree completely with that, the only thing I recommend which I had done before was shop around and get the oil yourself, that saved me a chunk on my F10. Just make sure it meets all the BMW requirements, however now it seems to be a few quid between so again it's whether or not its actually worth the hassle.
