There was a recent thread on F8x forum on mpg with the 27mpg I get seeming to be a typical average in mixed use... I think you need to go CP and not the base model... The major svce is the only big ticket item apart from when you need to put an extended warranty on it...
Have you had a quote for an extended warranty. I tend to go for 250 excess comprehensive without emergency services.

That big service is a huge ripoff I've been reading. Are there any tricks to avoid being stung?

Are opf cars ones with particle filters? When did they come in?
They came in around summer 2018. I got a car ahead of that thankfully.

You should definitely go have a drive of coupe and check for yourself how it feels compared to the cab.

I'm not sure there's all that much you can do about the cost of the major service except not use a main dealer, or perhaps find one that will allow you to supply your own oil.
