Service and engine question?

Hey everyone, so my 2004 325 xi is about to mature into an adult, the odometer is siting at 99 750 km. And of coarse when getting old they need there service. My dash is telling me I need an inspection in 2600 km and my engine light went on today saying to service soon. I called the wonderful people at bmw toronto only to find out it would cost me 1300$!!!! WTF. The car still runs great and im just curious if anyone else with a mature bmw has ignored this inspection and if its really necessary to spend 1300 on it? Let me know. Thanks.

no it is not.
it can be done much cheaper by any shop that knows what's involved.
we can do it as well as other site sponsor shops.

A ton of places do an excellent job. Check out the sponsors. That level of formal inspection is not required if you maintain your car and have the ability; you can check many of the components in your driveway. There are threads elsewhere in regards to what is covered under Inspection I and II.
