First service

I'm just back from getting my first service - the oil was 49 quid...  That said, I can't fault the service from Canon in Braintree.

So what was the full price they charged out of interest?

There is a chance that the oil might come down in price.

I heard that Chateau Petrus was thinking of supplying it.   :745:

Most BMW dealers will do a deal on pre-purchase of oil - whereby you pay for the bulk purchase for the next three years’ servicing.

Of course - this ties you in to a particiular dealer, but if that fits your plan...... it is a better return than keeping the money in a bank account etc.

Conversely - it is another ploy to get people to add it to their PCP contract.

 I needed a "special tool" when I did the 600 mile service.

THREAD HIGHJACK!  :164:


Hiya Millview,
a local I see?  I'm up the road to you in Hullbridge.

Do you go on the Cannon rideouts? Done quite a few in the last couple of years, always a good day.  :305:

Turns out several of the salesmen and mechanics are going to the Reiten BMW dealership that opens soon and there may not be any Cannon Rideouts anymore  :003:

Reiten are having one on the 14th April though!  :305:

Bit of a trot for me to get there for a 9am start on a Sunday, but should be there, if weather is ok(my wife will probably take her Speed triple up there too).

Keep an eye on both Facebook pages for updates  :018:
