New joiner

Just joined the site. There seems to be a big stateside presence (I'm UK based) but I like the posts I've seen so far - very informative. I am new to BMW - bought a 2008 520d 6 months ago. This is a wicked car and out-classes the Volvo and Audi company cars I had for the past several years. As I am retiring this year, I have taken cash in lieu of car and so far, have no regrets at all at buying the Beamer. I am becoming accustomed to prudent use of the BMW dealerships - for example, I had a parking light bulb replaced today. I was quoted 40 ($60) by the local dealership. Instead, I went to Halfords, who charged 10. I can't see how the dealership could have given better service and the parts are Unipart, guaranteed. I will probably still use the dealership for main service but for bulbs, tyres, and oil, I shall be selective.
