it won't be too much either as long as you bring in your own oil.
I want to have it done at the dealership. I just need to know what exactly needs to be changed/replaced. Long story short, I took my wife X3 for Inspection 1 and they did more than needed without even first contacting me. They told me one thing, but did the other and I ended up paying more. Apparently services are different between Germany and US. This is Germany, customer service is not priority here. If the work is performed (even without consent) customer must pay. I want to avoid that this time.
