My local dealer is only 5-10mi from home. But when the 600 mi service was due, they wanted twice what 3 other dealers wanted. So anytime I need to plug in and keep my warranty up, I slab it 230mi upstate to Touring Sport, where I bought it. They told me I could do the valve check/adj myself, and any other service items needed, but if anything was questionable later on in a warranty claim, Bmw might take into consideration that I did the service. But I did it anyway, and recorded the specs so I know what they will be on the next check. I had 2 ex a little tight for my liking and changed the buckets and never looked back.
