    Alright everyone,

    I wanna take my 118D e87 for a decent service at some point next week. Its not had one for over 2 years due to me leaving the car in secure parking whilst in Australia for a year. I have had to replace the battery and its working absolutley fine now just needs a good service.

    i have looked at a few places online and im not entirely clued with with it.

    Theres a place called https://www.bmw-service.co.uk/ and for £343 you get : Engine oil service with microfilter, air filter and fuel filter which includes...

    "As part of this full service, BMW trained technicians will remove the used oil from your engine, replace the used oil filter with a new, Genuine BMW filter and then refill your BMW engine using only BMW approved oil. The used cabin microfilter(s) will also be replaced with Genuine BMW filter(s) helping to maintain a clean breathing environment inside your car. To ensure your engine remains at its optimum, the engine air filter and diesel fuel filter will also be replaced with Genuine BMW parts. In addition, your BMW will be returned to you washed and vacuumed with an updated BMW service history."

    But also Kwick Fit do quite a bit more: https://www.kwik-fit.com/servicing/i...-in-my-service

    Where do you recon would be best to take it out of these 2? Or do you recommend anywhere else for a similar price?

    Cheers,

    Stef

    I always use the BMW dealership in Stockport, I find them very fair and do a reasonable job, car always has a good clean inside & out, give them a ring for quote Williams BMW 0161 477 6000., if car over 3 years old you will get a discount, providing you ask, they have or had an offer including a discount mot with a service.

    I personally wouldn't trust kiwi fit with my car.

    Don't forget your Mot if it's over 3 years old, you will need to book it in before you drive it to the garage for an mot or you could be liable, that's providing you need one.

    Cheers man, i rang them up earlier and they have sent me a quote. It is £503.05inc vat, which is for oil svs, micro filter, air & fuel filter, brake fluid change & vehicle check. bit pricey but maybe worth it

    For stuff I don't do myself I use Darren Wood in Stockport. Not the cheapest but reliable and know what they are doing.

    Darren Wood Ltd. - Independent BMW Specialists

    Only problem is they are usually very busy and I have had to wait 3 weeks before now for a slot.

    Another good specialist is David Paul in Warrington

    Independent Audi, BMW Specialists Warrington - Mini Servicing

    Forget vehicle check, waste of cash.

    If car due Mot then the check is more or less the same.
