Don't support your dealer - make friends with him

I don't feel obligated to support my dealer, but I do keep it mind that they need to stay in business for me to have a local source of parts. Also, it helps to have friends with the inside relationship with BMW. As much as I rely on this forum and my own ability to work on my bike, I respect my local dealer.

The link to the previous thread above will reveal you can save $7.50/filter with a non-BMW part. That's 0.25 PENNIES per mile. Is it really worth it?

My local dealer charges the same $17.

... sorry to hear your dealer is adding a premium.

You can order the filters from Chicago BMW over the internet. They charge shipping but give 20% discount off parts... Makes using BMW branded filters a no issue.

BMW Oil filter - another reason to use.

I've cut open the BMW filter as well as many others and can state that the BMW filter is very high quality. In addition, it has a filter to filter the oil when the bypass valve opens - which is not present in any other filter I've cut open. In 99% of the filters, when the filter bypass valve opens (eg due to cold oil etc), then UNFILTERED oil goes direct to all your engine components. This does not happen on the BMW filter.

I thought one time when I talked to them they would not ship oil.. or any fluids. Isn't it a little pricey to pay for shipping and take out the 20% savings?

Jack, I had to order the throttle cables. I checked the shipping price and then proceeded to add the oil filters and oil. The shipping was listed as being the same after adding the 12 quarts of oil and 3 filter kits. Go figure.

I hope they don't charge extra shipping, or hold up the order. One way or the other, I'll post on the end result.

John

Well, That is a good deal..

A few years ago, on my first order from Chicago BMW, I ordered a bunch of stuff.. Maintenance items.. air, oil, shifter balls, valve cover gaskets, gas filters spark plugs and etc, I ordered multiples to cover multiple services.. I wanted to get the oil but they said they found it 'not profitable' because of high shipping costs because of the weight.. Maybe they changed.. hold them to your estimated shipping costs. The website should calculate the shipping correctly. If not they need to fix it. It's only a software program.

Chicago BMW sent me an email response to my order-they don't ship oil. They did agree to send filters and the throttle cable stuff.

Surprisingly no one mentions CycleGear. I'm not sure if they are just regional, or a national chain, however, they regularly stock BMW k1200 specific FRAM filters for about $10,- (non-painted).

Smile Re: oil filter

Beemerboneyard.com has a 12-pack of Bosch filters for both oliheads and airheads for $74.95. That's only $6.25 per filter. And, a new crush washer for the drain plug is included with each filter. I have been doing business with this company for years and they are really great. Fast shipping also. Great for a needed used part also.

Re: oil filter

+1 on Beemer Boneyard. They also have complete kits with oil that are much less than the BMW store prices. I always try and buy locally, but my local BMW store makes it very hard to justify. It's not only about price, but customer service as well.

Re: oil filter

After storing my bike at the dealer I bought the bike from, I figured it would be easier to just have them change the oil. When I went to pick it up not only did they overcharge for the storage but the oil change was $170.
Needless to say that was the last time I was there. I now drive an extra 50 miles to a better dealer. Harley and BMW dealer that treats me like they care about me, and not just my wallet.

Now $170 for an oil change is what I call supporting your dealer...............

Re: oil filter

I'm curious how your dealer justified the fluid change amount. Laying on my back and squatting because I don't have a lift like I'm sure your dealer used, I can easily change all 3 of the main fluids in less than an hour. Parts cost to me run less than $50.00 so I guess his rate must be around $120 an hour? I'll do your next time for 1/2 of that......

Personally, I like to support my local dealer and I do buy my parts and supplied there, but in order to know my bike a little better and get a look at her more closely than when I ride, I prefer to do the oil changes myself. Gives me a chance to inspect things for tightness and or looseness and be better able to handle a repair on the road.

Hey Dano, next time you want to do a fluid change without crawling around on you hands and knees your welcome to take a ride on up here to Mount Dora and use my lift. That way you get to go for a nice ride and it gives me an excuse to put off some of those HONEY DO's! Just send me an email or PM.

Re: oil filter

Don't do it Dan! He's trying to sucker you in to using his lift. It only takes one time and you'll be hooked for life! Pretty soon you'll have your own lift and be standing around with tools in hand just waiting for the clutch to go out so you can tear into it!

Truthfully, it really makes performing maintenance a lot nicer.

Happy Holidays,
