    I live in solihull and Neil from NCB Autokraft in Solihull has quoted me about £500 incl VAT for oil service excluding spark plugs and changing front and rear brake pads for my 630i 2008. Is this too much? I dont mind travelling further if i can get it much cheaper, but fo course with genuine parts as car under bmw warranty.

    Any suggestions? Ive already found a few more to try from browsing the forum, will call them Tues when they all re-open

    Thanks

    The oil service depends what you want to put in your engine, it needs 8 litres of LL-04 oil which could cost £40 or £100 but that is entirely up to you. The Filter is £20, for the pads you will need new sensors at £17 each (need two) and the pads are about £50-60 a pair for OEM parts.

    The oil service service is about 15 minutes work and the pads 30 mins per axle so all in no more than 1 1/2 hours labour on costs of max £280

    Pricing sounds about right. Front and rear OEM pads alone cost £230 because of the bigger brake assembly on your car. Unfotunately, the E63/E64 models are not cheap on parts.

    Pagid pads are £45 each axle, personally if OEM parts really are so expensive I would be using them
