    I've religiously been taking my 5 series to Sytner Cardiff for its servicing and paying their ridiculously high fees (£90 per hour), but no more. Today I was faced with a £650 for a minor service and they had the cheek to charge £90 plus vat for looking for a squeak they found but couldnt work out what it was - they wanted me to authorise another 2 hrs to find it. I'm now going to start taking my car to a non franchised dealer which I should have done years ago for half the price. Anyone else feel the same?

    +1 fix it yourself. These bmw,s are pretty user friendly, they just look daunting

    I always took mine to Sytner Sutton Coldfield, they always matched or beat indy prices. Can't fault them.

    Negotiate, they always have room to move.

    I go independant, Woods in Odiham, Hampshire wanted over £650 to carry out a 2nd inspection service (60K) on my Missus X3, plus they wanted an extra £99 to change the brake fluid on top...

    I eventually paid my local indi, £285 for the same service using Bosch filters...
