I'd do the first service over there, but it sounds like that can be ridiculously expensive as BMW North America obviously won't foot that bill. I guess it's probably cheaper now, given the pounding the Euro's taken, if I need to get it done over there. Any thoughts? Thanks.
You do not have to get it exactly at 1200 miles, though you do NOT want to let it lapse more than you are planning since not just your engine oil is serviced. Also, I would believe BMW would do the 1200 mile service no matter what country you are's covered under warranty!
