6,000 Mile Service Cost

$147 at BMW of North Dallas.

Put her on the GT-1 and had ZERO faults.

Mechanic made a small adjustment to the shift linkage and she shifts like buttah!

There's not much to the 6K. And unlike the RS/GT/LT, there's no need to remove any tupperware. Looks like this is gonna cost about half of what it took to maintain the LT.

Spending upwards of $22K for a motorcycle and not getting extra keys or a friggin toolkit is pretty lousy.

Sounds like you need to get a clue.

A clue huh ???
How about the "context" of that statement?
Does that matter ?
A clue huh ?
How about THE most advanced formula one engine, brakes, oh hell, what's the point. ?

Context.
You'll save more money with the GT than you would with any other current BMW.

Context.
Try paying for a 600 mi. service $$$ on a '06 RT. That alone would pay for ANY toolkit, ANY keys, but I guess that would be to rational.
I have a clue, and I acted on it.
All this complaining, whinning, and bitching does, is breed discontentment, period.

Maybe you would prefer inferior cost control and "value engineering", so you could have your little "trinkets".

I expected more from you.

Easy does it.

We all have our own expectations on what we should have gotten with this bike or should have been charged for service. No need to take it out on each other. It could be worse we could all own Harleys,
