20% off Services, by June 18th

Just a heads up, been looking to book my Brake Fluid change that's due this month and on the bmw.co.uk booking system service items are showing 20% off if completed by June 18th.

I heard this on the radio this morning. I had already booked my service for next week a week or so back. I phoned the dealer and asked if they are honouring the 20% off for works already booked to happen during the promotional period and he said they would so that's a bonus for me and was worth the confirmation by the dealer themselves. (I expect they know people will just cancel and rebook).

Saves 120 for the round of servicing I have coming up

just in time for me, oil service and spark plugs due. saving 78 quid. Not doing air filter as i have a performance one in. Also vehicle check is a waste of time. They charge 60 quid to do the health check. Will the idrive still be updated if you dont book what the computer says the car needs. I can reset the counter manually for other items.

Glad I ended up waiting for my major service, booked that in for tomorrow as most slots have already disappeared.

Thanks for the heads up!

Just gone online to book a brake fluid service and noticed "Service packs included"

Not applicable to the brake fluid service but other items are listed as Inclusive i.e Engine oil service with microfilter, air filter & fuel filter.

If I go via the BMW App - Book service - no mention of service packs included and prices against all service options.

What's that all about?

Brake fluid service was available to me online, I found that going through the main BMW website worked better for me than the local Baron's one - same prices shown on both, but for some reason I couldn't confirm a booking with the Baron's site.

If you phone up BMW customer service you can inquire about it, check how long is on it etc. I had a service pack against mine which I didn't know about which unfortunately ran out before I could get the big service in!

Would be interesting to hear peoples experiences regarding booking online.

A few people in the thread below have experienced the dealership jacking up the price when phoning you to 'confirm the booking' or when they come to pay the bill.

Booked a brake fluid change and MOT last week....despite me asking the girl 'does it include standard scope' and her sounding confused then saying yes the e mail quote didn't mention it.

That quote was 156.....the online quote with 'standard scope' minus 20% is 150.

More fannying around tomorrow I guess.

I booked my last service online but rang the dealer to confirm. They had no trace of the booking but said they'd honour the price. When I dropped it down he said it could be less or more..I said "WTF you said you'd honour it? " It was actually less than the online quote for some reason.

Thanks for the heads up.
Mine is up for an oil service in June. Brake fluid by August so might get it done same time


Somehow I don't get the discount when booking via connected app, only online

Not had a issue with Barons Ruislip, they even called to confirm the price including the 20% discount.

Booked mine with Soper in Lincoln.
Not yet them before as I've just moved to the area.
Confirmation email didn't state any prices, but a text follow up from them quoted a different price from the BMW website. So a further 21 "saving" on top of the 115 discount from the site. Not arguing about that! Still extortionate, but I have the choice to go Indy...but I chose not to.

Ah yes, thanks.
Booked it in via the website for June 2nd and got the discount. Although brake fluid is not up until August, decided to go ahead with that too

remember it's only a month leeway either side of a service date mate. So if you carry out an August service before 1st July you won't have a full service history and it won't register as green/ok on the idrive.

First up op thanks for the heads up.
I have a front brake discs and pads service due in 3.8k miles and brake fluid service due in September so thinking of doing them both now.
Wrt the poster above I think the dealer will still enter it into idrive if done ahead of schedule thus maintaining the fsh?

I had no idea, thanks for pointing this out! I will cancel the brake fluid booking
