Take your own oil. That saves quite a sum.

I'm not sure where you're based however you may be able to find some ex BMW techs who work independently such as these guys in Leatherhead...

As a caveat, I've not used them yet however they seem to get good reviews, I just found them online shortly after I brought my 1 series.
