Any M5 owners recommend a BMW main dealer in Kent for servicing.

What sort of prices do they charge for oil service and brake fluid change.

Will they allow you to bring your own oil, as I gather it can be purchased a lot cheaper than BMW charge for it ?

So long as you bring 9 litres of Castrol Edge 10w/60 (NOT edge sport) it'll be fine. Any other oil and you'll be told to either buy the right stuff and come back or pay the full whack from the dealer.

I think its £300 / £400 for a full dealer oil change inc buying thier oil. Brake fluid was £80 at my dealer last time i went.

Sytner Harold Wood, who are a short hop across the Dartford bridge will not service the car if you bring your own oil.

Stephen James in Bromley would service it with your own oil for £340 + VAT before haggling. I would not touch Stephen James Blackheath with a 12" rubber dong strapped to an XL barge pole for ///M car servicing...
