    Someone at work said BMW offer special servicing costs to cars 4 years old or more?

    Has anyone used this and found a good saving?

    Then again this link seemed quite interesting

    Before you criticise a man walk a mile in his shoes, after that who cares? your a mile away and you have his shoes.

    yes I have used it. Basically they cut the labour costs in half so instead of being £100 per hour it's £50 it was £20 for an inspection 2 instead of £400 but my service ended up costing £429 as I needed an ABS sensor and camshaft sensor fitted.

    i know that bmw after so many years make the parts cheaper to keep the older cars going.

    As for labour costs, they never mentioned it to me, not that I would use them. Still wanted to charge me £750 for a big service on my e36 M

    I was on hold on the phone yesterday and the spiel was something about matching local indies on the labour charges. Worth asking about.

    Yes, BMW do own the outside lane, please move aside.

    BMW have offered the 4 year + reduced labour price for quite some time.....still tends to work out quite a bit more than an Indy. I got an Inspection 2 plus 4 discs/pads/sensors etc done and was stung for a tad under £1k Gone to an Indy ever since.

    4 plus scheme is usually between 10% and 20% saving. Not a great deal in it compared to independents.
