Question BMW Servicing

I have a 2002 325ti and its Inspection II is looming in the next few months (the expensive one). I have always taken it to my local BMW dealer as I want to maintain its full BMW service history. However, the cost is huge.

I was wondering if you can take it to other garages where they are BMW approved and the stamp in the book will say they are BMW approved, but the cost is much more reasonable?

Any help much appreciated.

yes, you can take it elsewhere. just make sure that the garage that you want to take your car to is very knowledgable on BMW's. Also, ask them if they know what to look for during Inspection 2.

Independent garages will be cheaper than the stealership.

Just do the I2 yourself. Really not that hard.
