Hello all,

I'm new to the forum and decided to join as I may be soon the owner of my first BMW. The car in question is a 2001 525 SE.

I have a query concerning where do most people get their cars serviced. The car I am looking at has 82,000 miles on it and so will be due an Inspection 1 service at 90,000. How much does an Inspection 1 service cost and can anyone recommend a dealer/specialist to do it in the Kildare area?

Hope to speak to you all soon.

Keith.

Welcome to the forum Keith good motor to start with.

depends on how much you want to spend and have the original BMW stamp in the book means to you i personally go to a indi/specialist to get the work done on my car.

Welcome along Keith. 525's are nice cars. I'd recommend a good
independent specialist rather then a main dealer. IMO you'll get better
service, better price and the car work will be done properly. Where abouts in
Kildare are you? Do you travel to Dublin at all?

  Keith - lots to see here.

I agree wth the comments so far , unless you already have a full book of dealer stamps then go to a good indie.

Hello all,

Thanks for the welcome. To answer the question from flyingalex68, yes I do travel to Dublin. Quite often in fact. Can you recommend someone for BMW servicing?

Keith.
