If it is a CPO where to go for oil service?



I am back in the BMW scene after 5 years... Anyways, I chatted a bit with a dealer service rep, and they want $179 tax included to do the oil. The indy shops will charge around $120ish. The dealer is on my street pretty much, and I just dont think it is worth to drive around to save or cheap out on 50 bucks. The other thing is, I got two full years of CPO warranty, so one more reason to stick with a dealer?

The last and very important, what is the difference between oil change and oil service? I think they want $250 ish for the oil service. I would appreciate any decent advice.

By the law there's no requirement for you to get maintenance at the dealer.

^^^^ What he said.

Best thing to make sure of if you're having someone else do the work is that they are reputable and relatively honest.

If you have any wrenching skills at all, investigate what you can do DIY. Then you'll save even more money.

Just keep all receipts from the indy shop and you should have no problems when it comes to warranty work.

Parkview BMW did it for $140. That price included a car wash and I am very happy. Now when should I get my tranny oil replaced.? Been told by a buddy of mine at 100 oookm. I got 70K KM on her. Do dealers check this when they do CPO program?

I will give it a try to replace the cabin filter. That is a pretty penny to do at the dealer. It is very easy.

BMW says tranny fluid is lifetime, so they'll never check it unless there's an issue.

Many BMW owners do opt to change fluid though.
