Average Cost of Maintance?

Hey Guys, I am new here 1.5 years ago i was in the market for a new car, it was between the 135i and g37s, I ended up going with the g37s because i got a good deal on it. Long story short car is totaled, i got t boned by some jerk who blew a red light! I am now in the market for new car and was considering the 135i again, i just have a question on the average price of your typical maintenance at the dealer in order to compare to the g37? More specifically i mean oil changes, brake changes, 30-60k service, etc. Thanks in advance!

At the dealership, oil change is as low as about $75 to as high as about $150 both with coupons. Without coupons it's expensive but coupons are around almost always.
Brake changes including rotors are about $1000 without coupons. Brake pad & sensor changes are about $300. I don't know about 30&60k services.

But my 2 cents, I'd never choose an Infiniti over BMW no matter what. I know there is big price difference, but I still get a BMW.
As a matter of fact, I choose 128i over G37. BMW is true luxury. Infiniti isn't.

Good luck!

If you get a brand new 135 all maintainance is free for four yr or 50,000 mi.If you buy used try to find one with at least a couple of years warranty remaining so you will have that time of free maintainance. Most of the items you mentioned are fairly easy DIY. If your not mechanically minded,many independent shops can do much of the routine maintaince items much cheaper than BMW dealers.

Yes, go to an Indy shop for maintenance if the warranty is up. Forget an aftermarket warranty, they are expensive. Save that money and use it for the real thing.
