I talked to an ex-BMW dealer mechanic who opened up his own shop, and there's absolutely no reason for us to pay that money. He told me to keep the receipt for the replacement BMW oil and filter, and log the miles and work in the service book. There's no requirement for the bike to be inspected by the dealer according to him.
