First service more expensive than service pack

I've been quoted 406 for the first service which seems incredibly high.

Service pack is 399. Even if I only get one service it's still cheaper.

Doesn't sound right.

Think I replied to your post on the other thread. Just get someone like Kwik-Fit to do it. By EU law all manufacturers had to allow third parties to carry out a manufacturer recommended service. First service shouldn't cost you anything more than £200. Just shop around and negotiate.

Service costs in Germany for a 530xD:
First service (oil service, standard items, microfilter, Castrol Edge Prof 0W30 oil, oil filter, active carbon filter): 390.16 eur. AdBlue refill 16.6 eur/liter+23.5 eur fee.
Total: 440 euros (January 2018)

Second service (oil service, standard items, air filter, fuel filter, microfilter, Castrol Edge Prof 0W30, additional materials oil and air filters, fuel filter cartridge, active carbon filter)
Total: 572 euros (November 2018)

So what does BMW service inclusive cover from this according to the ConnectedDrive webpage? About 261 Euros.

BMW service engine oil incl. Refill quantities (23.95 eur/liter, 6.5 liter needed=155.68 eur)
BMW Service Microfilter (2*11.75 eur=23.5 eur)
BMW Service fuel filter (5*11.75 eur=58.75 eur)
BMW service air filter insert (2*11.75 eur=23.5 eur)
BMW Service spark plugs
BMW Service brake fluid
BMW service vehicle check

I hope it helps.
