Shogun Main Dealer Service Ripp-Off!

54k service on a 3.2 DID Shogun 637.55!
WTF is Air-con treatment @25.53 or Air Refresher @20.78?
I've never paid more than 450 to have a BMW main dealer service.

I had a works Ssanyong Rexton 2 Year Service 2 months ago for about the same money, it was a bit of a frightener too, they say its a big service .. the usual What bugged me more was he was a small rural agent for them

What's annoyed me possibly more than the cost, was that the car was returned filthy as the car washing guy was apparently off sick. Presumably Dales Mitsubishi, Summercourt, Nr. Newquay, Cornwall only have the one person capable of washing a car. The service pack and locking wheel nut case were left chucked in the passenger footwell and a piece of seat base trim which had come adrift which I left with the service pack was also left in the footwell. Service book on the passenger seat.Just rubbish service.

That does seem high. I had a 64k service on my Nissan Patrol, that's the P3 (biggest) service at local Nissan Dealer. 550 including excellent valeting, courtesy car and some minor bits fixed at no additional cost.

why stick with Main dealers

why ?

I belive that if the car is serviced by an independant as long as they use origional parts then it doesnt effect the warranty

FYI

I have a Mitsi Delica and have just had a full service and MOT all filters oils etc changed 258.00

at an independant !

Manufacturers are allowed to insist that the independent garage is VAT registered... it's a fairly commonly accepted criteria for proving the status of a "professional" v an amateur. So get a VAT receipt.

Most of us who like to use main dealers for servicing do it for two main reasons - firstly for resale value, and secondly, one that had huge benefit for us recently - if your car is written off then a full dealer service history plus MOT (if applicable) means payout on a fully comp policy at top book value - ie dealer forcourt price. Nice.
