Recommendation for Oil Change in GTA

Hello everyone,

Newbie here and so glad to have found this forum! Got a 2008 525xi that is fresh out of its original warranty so it'll be my first paid oil change!

Any recommendations for a GTA shop that is not a stealership? Thank you!

Thanks, Auto-links! For comparison purposes, does anyone know how much the stealerships charge for a typical oil change? I usually go to Parkview if that matters. And how much do the above shops cost? Any noticeable different quality of service?

Thank you!

Mike does only BMW,
I have been bringing my cars to him for the last 4 years good service and good pricing.
The shop doesn't look like a BMW dealership (it is a little outdated) but he does know his stuff. The only thing is he doesn't do any performance. Only regular maintenance.

I was going to say get an extractor and DIY but I think your car may not have a dip stick tube.

Stealership use the castrol made in germany oil... Lakeside have switched to lubro moli for all their oil changes which is a +++++
