UK servicing costs
on: April 30, 2018, 06:27:23 PM
Bike is due it’s 2nd annual service, so 3rd if you include the running in service. All it needs is oil change & both filters. Local dealer wants £237 which is more than I was expecting.
What have people paid or been quoted?

Thanks.

Love anything with 2 wheels. If you fancy a meet up just drop me a line.

Do it yourself oil & filter change is really easy air filter not a big problem £237 seems a bit rich.

Are you sure?
I bought my bike last year as an ex demo with 3,500 on the clock, the dealer serviced it and gave me new tyres when i bought it.
I will be due an annual service in a couple of months and the bike will have will have done +/- 8k miles in total.
 
How much should i pay for the service at a BMW dealer?
Once i have a few replies, i'll let you know what i was expecting to pay

Cheers

From a technical stand point it’s all BS but the way the system works while your bike is in the 2 year warranty you play the game and so will BMW.

As for prices the south east is always going to be more expensive.

First year service, £150, 2nd year service and end of warranty check last week, £190..however my mates just booked in and got a quote of £148 on his xr second service..
If this turns out to be the case I'll be on the phone rapid.

I had my yearly service done today at Coopers in Tunbridge Wells with 7348 miles on the clock.
Air filter change, Brake fluid change and health check for £190.49. I did the oil and filter change myself last night and saved another £40+ on top of that.
Bike was in the workshop for about 2 1/2 hrs. Could have had a loan bike but was peeing down so sat and drank their coffee read MCN and had a look at the bikes.
