BMW inspection II

Hi I was wondering if anyone has any experience with BMW's inspection II?
I am considering a used bimmer, and one thing i know is that if I buy used, inspection II would not be far away.

Do you guys think it's necessary to head to a dealership and risk getting torn a new one, or would a smaller garage that has BMW experience suffice? From what I understand inspection II contains:

Oil change
transmission flush
coolant flush
differential oil change
and inspection for potential repairs

Any independent garage specializing in BMWs (or Euros in general) can take care of it. Just don't go to Bimmerhaus on Broadway/Lougheed.

How is the price of BJ Autohaus compared to a dealership in general?

They are more or less the same. Not by much.

Try taking your car to CG Motorsports since you're in Richmon (assuming your location is correct.)

Just got my Inspection II done by Park Shore BMW. Price was A LOT cheaper than what other dealerships quoted me (The BMW Store, Brian Jessel), but still more than the indy shops, with the exception of Nixon's. Personally I would to go them again just for the awesome service.

park shore is the only honest bmw dealer in metro vancouver. they know their shit, and won't charge you 600 dollars for an oil change because you have the "ultimate driving machine".
