BMW service required

Good morning,

The service light for "engine oil" has come up on the iDrive for my car, which is a 3 series, 320d, 2016 with 28000 miles done. Now the last service was done by the previous owner at a non-partner BMW dealer and he changed the engine oil and the filters at 15000.

Can anyone advise what service I should be doing to the car now as it is crucial for me to be well looked after in order to minimise the risks of having to pay for really expensive failure later on?

I got a quotation from BMW to change the following: Air Filter
13328572522 Diesel Fuel Filter
64119237555 Microfilter
11428575211 Oil Filter Set
83122409031 Screen Wash
83212405948 ENGINE OIL LL04 5W-30

For £629. Is there anything else I should be aware of or any other recommendations?

Regards,
Florin

If it's only 28kmi why is service not covered? Also that price seems way to high, is Europe this expensive in general? Oil change and filters should be under $150. If diesel filter is bad already isn't that warranty?

The car has 3 years warranty until April 2019 but it doesn't have a service pack + included which I know in some countries comes as a standard but not in the UK. I don't think the filters go under warranty because they are considered consumables.

Yes, you're being screwed, and not in the enjoyable way. Even with off the wall UK pricing I'd guess a good independent shop would come in at half that price. You don't need to have work done at a dealer to protect your warranty, just be sure what's done is documented and you save the receipts. There are plenty of shops who specialize in German cars, staffed by BMW trained mechanics who make better money working for an indy than for a dealer despite the lower costs. Selling cars has a very low profit margin, so the service department supports the overall operation.

Halfords are offering for the same servicing a price of £206. Now that's 70% cheaper so really tempted to go with them.

“Tempted”? Really?

I’d be there before my car warmed up.
