First trip to dealer
To recap, I bpought my 2006 convertible with 17k miles about three weeks ago. Even though the Mercedes dealer that I bought it from did an oil change, I though ir would be prudent to take it back to the local BMW dealer that it came from and let them go over it. I also wanted to get the 6 year old antifreeze flushed. They found a leaky lower hose and sensor that needed replacing. The service contract I bought covered most of that, except for the hose. They also recomended an alignment which I agreed to.
I observed the tech working and he was very thorough. Both he and the SA said the car is in amazing condition which was good to hear. The bad news is that because of the build date, the car is not compatible with the BMW iPhone integration kit, so I'm going to have to find another solution for that.
So what did all this cost? I had oil and filter service, alignment, lower hose and sensor replaced, and coolant flush and bought a 2 year service contract that includes 2 oil services and nitrogen fill plus a bunch $50 off service coupons, 2 of which I used for the alignment and flush. Total with tax was just over $800. Not a bad experience, but I hope I won't see them again for another year!
Now for new wheels and an exhaust...
