What a pure joy to ride, totally awesome !
I had the 48K service @45K miles which included flushing the brake lines and new fluid. The FD fluid looked clean and no chips on plug, trans fluid changed and synthetic in motor with BMW brand filter. They also replaced the trans final seal and drilled the weep hole in bell housing for me and put a rubber plug in it that I can use if necessary in bad weather I guess. Had an EDC rear rotor and new pads installed for squealing brakes and very loose floating rotor. Took her for a 50 mile test run and all seems good ! Total bill was around $1,041.00 of which $668.00 was for labor so I feel that is not too bad, although I could have saved a bundle doing it myself, but could have also had a disaster bleeding the ABS system etc. LT is new to me and first service done by BMW Master tech sounded good to me. Flushing the brakes lines and adding new fluid was most hours of labor, even more than the rear trans seal. Still hard for me to get used to the LT rattle and knocking noise at idle and up to about 1500 rpm. I had the tech and service manager listen to it with the tupperware off and they say normal.I have read all the posts on it here so, no problem, I will have to get accustomed to it.
Now I need to plan my trip up to Camden, Maine and all points "down east" I
always stop at L.L. Bean for a coffee and look around.

Thanks to all for the advice and replies when LT was in the shop last week!
I will do my own oil changes etc. from this point on.

Sounds good! I'm new to the BMW world, let alone the LT, and mine is currently in the shop :( I too eventually will be doing my own service at some point, but, right now I'm extremely busy closing on a house, work, getting registered for school, etc... so I figure if the shop can fix it right and give me many miles of trouble free miles, then it is worth the $.

My clutch replacement and 60k full service I'm hoping will be around $2,000. (hoping, lol)

Would be good to get clutch and service for 2K, hope it happens for you.
Always seems to be some added expenses though. For me the BMW world is quite a learning curve. I really do not know what I would have done without the bmwlt.com forum !

best of luck to you

OK, I will honk and try to drop off a lob'sta on the way back !

I see in your profile you are a "call center" manager. That can be some frustrating high stress work there ! Been there, done that, myself
