    My car is due a brake fluid change, when I had it in the dealer back in febuary they said they would fix the price at £82 for the brake fluid change when it's due.... Just rang them to book it in and now it's £118 he was having none of it when I told them they had fixed the price for me.

    So I've booked it in with a local independent for £50 also a oil service is only £100 from them

    I would of done the same mate!...some of the stealers prices are crazy!!

    A full BMW service history is excellent if your going to be selling the car in the near future...but IMO if your going to be having the car for a few years and you will be clocking up the miles then the full stamp is not as important

    tbh i dont think main dealer stamps are important any more...anyone with half a brain knows that an indy stamp is as good because all its showing is tha the service has been done.
    and lets face it...some stealers have been known to **** up big time.

    Also anyone with half a brain can get a stamp made up and stamp a book, the difference is that you can check with Bmw. This has been noted in recent threads where people have found the car they were going to buy had been clocked

    Yes they do make **** up's but you don't hear about when they don't
