Can you really trust those places to do the job properly? Or, in other words, why *pay* someone else to potentially screw it up when you can do it yourself for free? ;-)
1. Since you have multiple bimmers, use your BMW CCA discount to buy cases of 5W30 at the dealer...You're not going to find an ACEA "A3" -rated synthetic cheaper elsewhere.
2. Shop around among BMW Parts Depts. for deals on filters; and, buy in bulk.
3. Consider getting a Topsider...Makes the task even easier!
