Service Packs

Hi All

Does anyone have an opinion on the service inclusive and service inclusive plus packs that are offered when you buy a new BMW, are they worht the money or are we just pre paying for our servicing with no real benefit

Thanks

My dealer included a 5 year/60k mile service pack FOC, but I don't think it was much more than 300 and I consider that to be well worth the money as it represents at least 3 services if you do the full milage. If your dealer doesn't offer likewise, I suggest you shop elsewhere. On top of that, as the F10 has been around for well over a year, you should also be able to argue a half decent discount.

You did well to get that much, did you use the ammunition of a 'Broadspeed' quote or was it relatively easy to argue for?

I also got mine thrown in free with an 8% discount. I dont think the plus pack is worth it especially as I think it costs closer to 1k....

IMO they are really worth it as someone has already said you will easy make your money back over the five years.
