Not sure what BMW charge but here is the cost at a good BMW indy

Add about 25% on top for BMW charges.

I wouldnt be too worried. its unlikely to have caused any damage as yet and it 'may' have still had an oil change by some small time garage etc...

Chck the colour of your oil on the dipstick. it is a deep dark brown/black it needs changing asap.. Also, check the oil filter and see if it looks new or well used in terms of crud and oil on the exterior of it.

Low mpg is likely to be Lambda sensor needs replacing but you will need to post up in the E46 tech forum for tech help Im afraid. Otherwise this place gets in a mess...and its enough work as it is :hihi

inspection 1

I recently had and inspection 1 done at a local indapendant bmw specialist and it came out at about £165. I can't say for certain but the insp 2 i believe is about £15 - £20 more.
