Booked my 2002 320i (Canada) with 66,000km as the Service Indicator is calling for an "Oil Change". Not bad, I am thinking.... been service-less for a year. This would be the first one I actually have to pay out for, previous one's were covered under warranty.
So the agent quotes me C$350 for the Oil Change. Gulp. Then she tells me I'm due for a coolant flush - $100; a steering flush - $80; and a fuel-injection cleanup - $100 (all prices approx. I can't recall exact). Yah.... and since my 4 year warranty is almost up, would be good to have a check-over - $65.
My question is, what is involved in the "Oil Change" activity for it to cost $350?
used: Can the other activities be done just as well by a decent local shop? I'm OK with using the dealership for specialized work... but flush and lube don't fall into that category...... or do they ???
I'm prepared to get the Bentley book and do what I can myself, and this forum is a huge info source that will help with getting the service indicators reset. I'm just a little concerned that I may diminish future resale value by not having a dealership FSH on record.
