F80 - 3 yr. Service Cost & Options Going Forward

Hey friends -- I have a 2nd owner (8/17 prod) F80 ZCP. I've just crested 30k miles, so it's time for: oil + filter, intake air filter, spark plugs, and 1st brake fluid change.

Purchased last August, so this will be my first service (and first with any BMW). I'm not averse to the idea of doing most work myself, but to do them all at once is a PITA/time sink that I'll most likely pay to avoid. I plan to contact my local dealer service rep. to inquire about this specific service and/or extended service package options, and also reach out to a local BMW indy.

I'd appreciate having a general cost expectation or negotiation point beforehand. Happy for any other related input/advice as well.

We'll plan on a 1500ish bill if not doing it yourself.

I did the 30k mile service myself after getting quotes from the dealership, a local BMW-exclusive shop, and a European specific shop. Quoted prices were $1900, $1500, and $1100, respectively.

I did it myself in about 5 hours for $350 including all parts/oil and tools. Not hard at all. I used the money I saved as an excuse to by an AA Single midpipe I bought off another forum member and still saved a couple hundred $$

Yep -- after similar quotes, I'm just gonna do it all myself. Turn it into a whole afternoon and give it a nice detail as well.

Nice call on the AA Midpipe as well. I've been thinking about that same item.

I highly recommend it. I didn't get the equal length because, frankly, I didn't think it sounded any better and wasn't worth the additional cost to me. I got mine for only $600

I was originally looking at getting downpipes but the labor, passing emissions, and additional cost persuaded me to just start with a midpipe.

It made a huge difference, especially when driving with spirit. Occasional pops and burbles, slightly louder, and more throaty (non-ZCP). Install was under 3 hours. Honestly you could probably get your maintenance done and the midpipe in a single day
