Oil Change Price

I don't plan on waiting until 10k for the free change. Anyone know how much the dealer charges for oil changes on the M2?

Too many variables. Why not just call you local dealer for an accurate quote?

Should oil changes be done every 6-7k miles?

Where are you buying an oil filter and 7 qts of synthetic oil for $40?

When parts are $77+ OEM Oil Service Kit / Inspection I it makes the $79 BMW VALUE SERVICE worth a trip to the dealer.

Walmart sells 5 quarts of LL01 synthetic for $23. Filters available at lots of places for less than $10.

That's what I usually do to my daily car, Mobil 1 from Walmart 5 qt always under $30 and a new Filter $5 when bought in bulk and changed every 5K miles..

No reason you can't do it for your M2 too. They have both Castrol and Mobile 1 LL01 for $23 or$24 plus tax. I change my oil after every track event. Probably unnecessary but cheap insurance. I don't reset the oil service but log it in a book. Then I get the dealer changes too under warranty.

Actually changing mine this weekend after last weekend at Road America.

I get that and use to change my own oil but the X5 takes 8 qt and I believe the M2 takes 7 qt which makes the price difference less. That or I'm just getting lazier

Not unnecessary given the peace of mind you get. I would do a fresh oil change after each track event in my old track car. Just something less to worry about for less than 40 bucks, thats why I bulked up on filters.

Is age getting to you??

Kidding aside is it uncomfortable to get to the filter etc? All my past cars it has been pretty straightforward and would always do myself unless under dealer maintenance but it wouldn't hurt to have a change in between if the dealer period is too long.

Slightly off topic but I thought you all might be interested. My E90 330 and E84 X1 use the exact same filter. For grins I compared to the M2 filter. See pic below. They are identical in every dimension and way except that the part number is different and the M2 filter is stamped M next to the part number. E90 filter costs $9.80 online. The M2 costs $15 from the same place online.

It is usually straight forward but the new cars have a under panel that needs to first be removed. On the X5 I can take it off w/o jacking up the car but it's a bit of a tight fit to get the rear screw

That's great. I use OEM Bimmerparts when I can but they usually only have older models. Looks like they carry these for the price mentioned, http://www.oembimmerparts.com/search...566327&Submit=

Huh???

The filter is right on top of the engine under the hood. This is the same as every BMW I've ever owned. 2xE36, 2xE46, 1xE82, 1xE84, 1xF87. It's as easy as it gets.

As far as the drain plug there is no bottom panel in the way of the drain plug. It's right there in plain sight. All of my other BMWs have either had it in plain sight or at worst required a plastic trap door to be opened that did not require any tools. The M2 is far and away the easiest oil change of any BMW or other car I've owned assuming of course that you put it up on ramps as it sits fairly low. One exception. The front spoiler sits very low so putting up on ramps requires that your ramps be long enough.

It's less than 10k miles for the oil change or this could be adjusting for my driving style. Oil already got changed at 1200 miles and now it says next oil change in 6800 miles. It's synthetic oil so following the car/manufacturer recommendations should be fine.

My local dealer charges $50 for an oil change if you use the coupon sent via email. I've used an independent guy for years and he charges $125. Needless to say, I'll continue using my BMW store for oil changes as long as they keep sending me coupons.
