I need oil change ideas in North Dallas!

Dealership has gone from $100 to $120 for an oil change. I live in Collin County. Any ideas on where to get an oil change for a decent price?
135 with an N55.

BMW of Arlington does it for $49.99. Might be worth the drive. I live in the panhandle of Texas, and get mine changed in Arlington whenever I'm in town. Closest dealership to me is Amarillo, and they charge over $100 as well.

That's the kind of feedback I was looking for! I checked with several collin county dealerships, they ranged from $120 to $138. I work 15 minutes from BMW of Arlington (Moritz BMW?). I' give them a call.

Thanks!!

What a great deal! $49.99, usually it's only a Saturday special, but that price is good for the whole month of September.

Do It Yourself? Seriously, its not that difficult. Join BMWCCA and you'll have many members around who would be more than willing to lend a hand.

It's an extra $20

Be happy you don't have an M3, it cost me $180 just for the oil and filter.

It's gone from $80, $100, to $120 now. I was willing to pay the $120, but was thinking hey is there something better? And turns out there's something much much much better.

I use a wheelchair to get to car, but can easily crawl around, and did brake job on BMW X1.

Oil is even easier.

Walmart or others sell a nice oil catch can that holds it internally.

You can pour back into old 5 quart jug to measure how much came out.

Last 2 jugs of Mobil 1 0w40 were $13 after rebate. Filter is maybe $10 from Amazon.

So easy, even in apartment parking lot, and you know what you got.

FYI to anyone in North Texas, I got the engine on reduced power warning today. BMW of Arlington and the first hour of looking at the car to determine the problem is free. Can't beat that with a stick. I know the other BMW dealerships around here start at $169 for that first hour.
