Some clarification from EMac and Stratstone for the BMW Service Plan:

Their service plan for 1050 ish consists of:

1 x MOT.

1 x Major service: (Calculated pay as go cost is approx 750)
Air filter
Oil service
Spark Plugs
Vehicle Check

2 x minor: (Cost paygo is 350)

Map updates.

Therefore paygo prices are worth approximately 1450, BMW service plan is 1050. So an approximate 400 saving.

Belt change is 599, and struts are 200 (both of these from what I've read aren't strictly necessary unless you have problems).

The dealers do a pay as you go major service for 1350, which is slightly different from the BMW service plan: It includes major service as above but with the addition of the belt change. I don't know if you can get a major service without the belt change pay as you go, but it means that the emac/Plan value is therefore 750 (1350-600).

All in, a 400 saving on the plan. You also get a free MOT chucked in and map updates as well as any seasonal checks. Not the worst deal in the world, indies probably cheaper still but you get courtesy cars too as standard so the faff of not getting dropped off etc could be worth it for some.
