90000 MILE SERVICE COST?

Postby christian » Tue Mar 08, 2011 3:10 am

I have a 1996 BMW 328i Convertible. It is approaching 90000 miles and I was wondering how much does it cost to have it serviced. I have been told by most people to do it at the dealer because most mechanics know nothing about BMWs.

The car has a timing chain so it doesn't need replacing.

People change timing chains prior to them snapping because of their use on interference motors. At a BMW dealership they'll do 1&2 as detailed here.

They're saying it should cost around 600-800 bucks for both...basically it involves an oil change, topping off fluids, and changing the plugs (besides inspection). Worth it to you?

Your 10 point answer will come from the dealership or garage. Expect to pay about $300-$500 for the laobr. It also depends upon what the dealer includes in the service. My dealer wanted to charge me $395 just to look at the car. Then add to that the cost of any repairs (additional labor + parts).

BMWs are indeed known to many mechanics and known well. If you have it, look in your BMW Owner's packet. You will find the answer in the thin one titled Vehicle Maintenance Schedule.

Any car that has a timing chain needs changed sooner or later.
