    Run in 600 mile Service
    « on: 2013-09-16 01:31:28 »
    Just had the 600 mile run in service done.
    The deal is I pay the parts and dealer does the labour.
    Cost of oil, filter and rear diff oil .....93 smackers.
    mmmm. I feel I have just had my pants pulled down, unless folks can tell me its a really special filter and oil ?
    4,5 litres oil, a wee bit diff oil and a small oil filter?  och at least I get free coffee and orange drink whilst waiting lol.
     
    how much Mr BMW ?

      A litre of the liquid gold is about £15, but the stealer will probably have in bulk at cost, so say a tenner a litre.


      Filter? £13-ish


      Drive oil? No idea unless they charge for a full bottle.


      I seem to recall my 'free' service was about £65-ish

        I don't think they get the 5w 40 Power 1 oil in bulk and I think it is around about 17-18 quid a litre so that will be £70. Oil filter is as Winston said. I did have one dealer charge me for 1 litre of the final drive oil once. As the final drive only takes 200cc or so I asked them to give me the rest of the oil I paid for. It is about £15 a litre.

          Depending your location/sales tax, etc. $93 bucks is standard. Add your dealer's shop rate to that to determine your savings/decision point. Then add the dealer fee for resetting your computer after you've changed your oil. My dealer does not charge a resetting fee if I purchase the oil and filter from him. The 600 mile run-in service should be done by the dealer to preserve your warranty. Subsequent oil changes conducted by you are within warranty parameters.

            Over here the oil alone is about € 100 at the dealers. You can buy the identical oil on line for half the price.

              Welcome to the BMW ownership experience!!!
              I have owned 19 new BMW's and I always wonder the same, but I guess that is the price of the tech and training they go thru... Good luck with your new bike
