Cost of service on the BMW1200 LC
« on: April 19, 2014, 12:48:22 pm »
I nearly fell of my chair, a friend had his 1st service done on the new 1200, cost of oil alone was R1700.
Is this normal?

I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Either your friend was taken for a ride or he exaggerates for effect. The oil is expensive at around R400-R600 for a complete oil change. My 1000km service was about R1200.00 and my 10000km service was R1600.00 which included a few extra bits that I broke during a ride.

Will ask him for his invoice, I think the service was done in Rustenburg..........

The specified oil for the LC is Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 5w40. Oil and Filter change requires 4.1 L. This stuff sells for the discounted online price in Europe and the UK between R680,00 to R960,00 For 4 Litres. Are you telling me that BMW locally is selling this stuff retail at way less than that ? Or are they using another oil ?

I can only find my invoice for last year's 1000km service on the first LC. At that point the oil cost was R1080. Since then the price have gone down significantly and my 1000km service on the new bike cost about R1200.00 but I just cannot find this invoice.

At no point did the oil alone cost R1700.00.

What is the ZAR value of the fun factor?

As long as that offsets the costs of services/tyres etc. all is well  :thumleft:

The BMW branded oil costs that amount. Its the same castrol oil but is branded BMW.

I was told to ask the BMW dealer beforehand wheter they use the BMW branded Castrol oil or the castrol oil that comes straight from castrol.

My oil and service was R1200 but its the Castrol stuff not the Castrol stuff ina Bmw bottle.

Its similar to the zumo 660 or nav 4 or even the Bmw akropovic compared to the normal akro.

Take the akro price multiply by 2 and you have the price of the Bmw akro etc etc etc

Castrol racing1 5W40 was joint development with BMW EXPENSIVE and required spec
Castrol racing1 10W40 is Castrol and some dealers use it, however it is not within BMW Spec much cheaper but you run the risk of warranty issues is you have mechanical issues

Indeed.

BMW pours oil in my bike, even if Checker NoName Cooking Oil, they sort warranty issues.  Easy as that.

Serviced in Bloemfontein yesterday R1008 + vat, R240 for installing gear shift assist pro, though it took the better part of 8 hours. Hats of for Riaan and his team.
