How much to you pay for your oil change?

Guys,

How much do you pay in the GTA for your oil changes, assuming synthetic oil?

order a couple extra oil filters when you order parts from the states online for 6 bucks each. then oil, and it's about 60-70 bucks all in.

dealer part prices here are so f*cked up. period. we get raped, beating and pissed on when it comes time to pay for parts here. Its ridiculous.

I do oil change myself. oil is anywhere from 36-75 depending on if its on sale or not and what I get.
though crappy just raised their oil prices($11.29 a liter now WTF) and an oil filter is $12-20 depending on what I get and from where.

BMW M50/M52 oil filters from Maranello BMW are $10 if you say you're from maxbimmer and talk to Mike. In fact, basically any part is way cheaper.

Oil filters are 9.xx from germanparts.ca

Thanks guys!

I had a friend, who is a tech, do it for me. Costs were...

Oil: 7 x $11 =$77
Filter: $7.50
Labour: 0.5 x $60 = $30

So $114.50+tax
