>> I would just like to know around how much an Inspection I should cost.
I shopped two independent BWM shops and three dealers for my 95 M3
Inspection I service. They ranged in cost from $300 to $450 US$ (+ tax).
The most expensive didn't change the microfilter as recommended.
I went with a BMW dealer 20 minutes further away from me (BMW Northwest in
Tacoma) who charged $300, changed the microfilter, and provided a free
loaner car (a 318ti). They gave me a written checklist of all the things
they did which matched what BMW recommended be done.
If they do everything they are supposed to, then $300 seems fair to me.
But I'm sure many don't bother and just change the oil and charge you the
$400 or whatever.
