Cheap service items
on: March 28, 2021, 07:16:00 PM
Synthetic oil is not cheap and BMW oil can be expensive depending where you buy it.  I am about to do an oil change and I was going to use Motul 7100 which I have used in many other bikes.  The best price I could find was 43.95 for 4 litres but I then came across a BMW dealer in Northern Ireland selling Advantec Ultimate 5W40 for 12.71 per litre if you buy 2 or more, so 4 litres comes in at 50.84 with free delivery.  As that is only 7 more than the Motul I decided to go with the BMW oil.  If anyone else needs oil and wants to get some the link is below.

I was also looking for an air filter and found someone selling new/old stock Mahle air filters for 12, you can also make him an offer, I got mine for 11 with free delivery

I received the oil and it was exactly as described, BMW Advantec Ultimate, arrived quickly and no issues with it coming from Northern Ireland.  The air filter also arrived very quickly, boxed and perfect condition.  Just waiting for the oil filter wrench to arrive and I will change the oil ready for the summer
