funny thing, is that that's not an unreasonable price.EPIC!
My girl friend has a newer Mini Cooper and the dealership would charge her the same as they charge the BMW cars that come in (if it was out of the maintenance program). Last time I checked it was like $100 for full synthetic & a filter :inout7xr:
But on the flip side, I'd rather purchase a used car that has been taken to the dealership every time, and documented either electronically and/or with receipts. Rather than little nephew Johnie changing the oil with some walmart special and no filter, and pocketing the rest of the cash...
It's not the most expensive, as unfortunate as it may be. A friend of mine works for Easy Lube and said full synthetic/synthetic filter for certain Mercedes were almost $200... now that can hurt the pocket!funny thing, is that that's not an unreasonable price.
I did an oil change on my buddy's bmw. it took, I believe 7 qts of oil (german acastrol - castrol syntec) and the filter was $24 (fram). I remember it cost us $106 for the oil and filter alone, to do it our self.
ahh... the never ending oil change.I know at least 2 people running old Fords-a 73 Maverick, and a 79 pickup-that have never changed oil. Mavericks oil is at least 20 years/100k old, has been topped off, but not changed. Guy I used to work with at an auto parts store:32:. Newer engine designs dont like this, but the low tolerance engines from the 50s-70s seem to tolerate a lot more abuse.
