Shout out & thanks to Sam @Opie

Post by simonorsborn » Wed Nov 14, 2018 9:53 am

Just got my F45 220D Active Tourer MSport xDrive booked in for its first service (2 years old). BMW quoted £294 but it seems £119 of that is the oil! I asked them for the exact spec of the oil and then ordered it from Opie Oils (thanks for advice on this Sam @Opie when I phoned up). 6 litres from Opie delivered was £52. That saves nearly £70 just on the oil!

Funnily enough I could have bought the oil from the BMW parts store but in 1 litre containers, walked it round and given it to the workshop to save £10 over the workshop oil. Go figure. You’d think that in the workshop when they have the big oil barrel dispensers it would work out cheaper.

I'm going to source the oil filter and micro filter now (genuine BMW parts) and supply those to save a bit more cash.

Did the same on my S1000RR motorbike earlier this year and will do the same on my M140i when that comes up for it's first service.
