I am in negotiations for leasing a loaner BMW 330i from the dealer with ~2k miles on it.
Since the dealer is assumed the title of the vehicle, I am assuming for it to “transfer” there is a fee for this maintenance refresh. The dealer informed me that this car does not come with the basic 3 year maintenance (BMW Ultimate Care) and would like to charge ~$400 for it.
While I know this fee likely varies from dealer to dealer, does anyone know what a fair price of this should be? Note that this is not for the Ultimate Care + which includes brake pads (another $400). This is only for oil changes and air filters. The maintenance refresh should be free, since you’re leasing it from the dealer.
I just wanted to get people’s experience or opinions on this. I have seen on this forum that people have paid $100 for a refresh, but I wanted to see there this $400 was coming from (unless it’s just a made up # to profit on).
