As the Service plan has a 60,000 Mile limit which I would do long before the 5 years. My service indicator is suggesting that it will be every 21,000 miles. This would mean I only get 2 services from the pack. Are you allowed to take it in say at 19.5K each time or would they not allow you to take it in early?

Also for those without the plan, what are the thoughts on using a non official BMW dealer as I understand the law now specifies that it doesn't have to be a BMW dealer for the servicing to keep the warranty? - After all changing the oil and a couple of filters is not that difficult!
