£271 is a lot really for a basic service. The coolant £15, belts £15, brake fluid £10, oil £60. It would cost a trader a lot less as they most likely have a stuff like oil,brake fluid and coolant in stock they use for all other vehicles. Not a bad mark up for 1hrs work i suppose hes got to make a living. Heard good things about this place its good to go somewhere like this if you cant do the work yourself. Peace of mind

1 hour to change belts, coolant and brake fluid, when did you last service a car. To do it properly will take half a day.

Not a great experience for me. Rang up about my x3 needing a new Turbo. I asked I could get a quote to be told, abruptly, we don't do quotes over the phone. I hadn't asked to be given it over the phone!!

He then said he would email it but 3 x days later.....no email. I guess they don't want to do the servicing of the three BMW's in our household.

Strange one as I thought garages were in the business of fixing cars in return for money, how wrong can you be.

they're my local indie......

however I've never used them so cant comment on their work - every time i ask them for a cost or estimate I'm surprised at how much they want. even simple things seems to be costly......

Doesn't sound excessive to me OP.

Two weeks ago I had an oil service, Inspection 1, brake fluid change and gearbox oil change at my local BMW indy (TWG Automotive in Camberley) and it cost £293.50.

I know it's not quite the same work, but hopefully that gives some perspective - oh, and they supplied all fluids.

In May 2016 my previous Coupe had an oil service and brake fluid change at my local Sytner and it cost £260.32. (I only went there because I was selling it and as part of the deal the buyer wanted to maintain full BMWSH).
