Thanks for posting - that's useful comps for other owners even if prices can fluctuate a lot around the country. From my experience - that's as good or cheaper than the lowest price I've been quoted for all those jobs at a BMW dealer in the DC area.

However, the dealer definitely did add some extras which were probably not necessary. Not sure what's included in line item A. I personally opted against E and F (covering beyond those items with an independent mechanic). I also didn't need an alignment, but all dealers up-sell, it's the nature of the game. Were you happy with the overall service and how they treated you as a customer?

The M-car tax is inherent, unfortunately.

Also since I don't want risk with super expansive repairs I got car warranty from them and service contract from BMW (unfortunately for 2 years only because of original service date )
I have CCB option so i worry about them idk maybe i should go to the race track and brake them hard to wear out so dealership can replace then while i have warranty for maintenance?

BMW Ultimate Care(list what they covering)



Any ideas any suggestions with what i need to be really careful or did not even try to do something?
In plans do St2 (I already have Catless DP from RK Autoworkers and Eventuri Intakes) saw one local shop doing low torq tune with 668whp 6653wtq Any suggestions and recommendations??

Every dealership has different Sales and Service people. Every few years, their staff rotates because people leave and new people come in. Every so often management changes too.

All I can say is that I special ordered a car from them about 10 years ago and they screwed up the order, changed the money factor behind my back, change the residuals, lied about it, and then accused me of being cheap because I didn't want to pay an inflated price that we did not agree on. I would never go there again.
