1200 mi Break-in Service - Cost?

Hey everybody -

Quickly approaching my 1200 mi service on my Pentagon-sourced M3 coupe. Any recommendations on who to do the service? And how much should I expect to spend?

Any help appreciated!

SF

the 1200 miles service is free at any BMW center. but make sure to tell them to change the engine oil and filter, transmission oil, and differential oil!

Thanks - yes, I am aware of the benefits for owners in the US.

Specifically, my situation is that I am in Germany and the same consideration is not applied to US-spec vehicles at the German BMW dealerships here.

So I am looking for other US-spec M3 owners inputs from here in Germany.

Quotes I have so far are:
K'town Euler: 400 Euro with VAT form
Landstuhl Euler: 200 Euro with VAT form (even though the service dept lady spoke english, I don't trust that she knows what I was talking about)

Looks like I'll have to invest in some 10w60!

I had my 1200mi service in January at Krauth in Heidelberg. If I remember correctly, I paid 160 euros and I brought my own oil which I purchased at ATU.

ive heard upwards of 600-700 euros. i bought the oil and did it myself on base. you need to do engine oil and rear diff fluid if you have dct, add tranny to that if you have manual tranny. the service was pretty straight forward.

Complete yesterday!

Was 224 Euro at Euler Landstuhl but that included the installation of my CF centre console piece as well, and I had to provide the 9 litres of 10w60.
