    BMW service

    ^if I am not mistake, I think the OP has paid every bit of the service, including the wiper blades and filters, and the $350 excess was for the expansion tank and hose ONLY which is treated as a "breakdown/fault" whereas the others are just a part of the upkeep.

    BMW service

    ^ both actually require a certain level of skill. even if its just 1/5 on the screwdriver-skill-o-meter. all things considered, those retarded prices are reasonable, the indy needs to make some margin on the OEM parts they are fitting to offset the cost/delivery/stocking, then they have a labour portion on top of that. when i called dealership last time for wiper blades, they were 250, oem from nz was 150, and oem from overseas was 100. ended up ali-expressing some cheap ones for $30..

    BMW service

    if you "drop in" a car for "a service", you are getting a.. service. aka, get the basic parts replaced/sorted at their knowledgeable reputation and hopefully prevent bigger/further damage and keep your car on the road. every single one of those items are all good important parts that should be replaced, unfortunately the kms is never a good judgement of a condition of the car and this is the biggest problem with NZ car sellers and buyers who think LOW KMS? --> NO PROBLEMS!! Now, all those things are relatively easy replacements if you choose to order the parts and DIY but this requires a level of skill or at least help. Sure you can save a few bucks but in exchange you spend your time and effort. Therefore, a service exists the way it is. Another dealer bullshit is that they will always claim the car is "serviced" upon arriving from Japan. This is 99% of the time just outright lies. At most, they apply a thick layer of greasy cleaning product all over the car and engine bay and usually top up the engine oil instead of draining/replacing it properly. To be honest, if you bought your car 6 months ago and you have done 11,000kms already, you should DEFINITELY do an oil change. It should be done roughly every 10,000kms not every 1 year or 20,000kms. Also, with the 116i, be careful with the air intake hose, it will probably crack soon if it hasnt already.

  14. glad to know i didnt waste my time going there. i knew it was a junkyard and no suprises based on the replies in this thread. ha!
  15. Its been a wonderful year of ownership but now looking to sell.. 2012 model ex Japan with NZ maps just checked and the kms are at 113,300 now. has sunroof, leather heated seats, mperformance exhaust, stage 1 dyno tune (runs on 98 only) have spent a lot of money to replace the waterpump and thermostat, valvetronic motor and eccentric shaft, have receipts for all work done at a bmw specialist garage. very regular oil changes at home with castrol edge 5w30 with genuine filter. wheel alignment done last week for peace of mind at autolign. p plate not included in the price, can do slightly cheaper with other wheels/tyres and without MPE if preferred. Very difficult to put a price but will say $28,000 ono for sake of forum rules...
