Break-In Service Cost

I believe you guys in the US don't pay for Service... But perhaps we have some of the European owners to answer as well.

How much was your Break-In Service Invoice ?

I was a bit surprised to see the amount and cost of the Engine Oil...

8.5 Liters and 205 Euros (before tax)

Total invoice was around 420 Euros

I bought 12 quarts (more than 8.9 quarts needed for oil change) of German-made Castrol 0w-30 for $102 on Amazon. This is a much better oil than what the dealers give you.

So 205 euros for just oil is too much. Oil should be $105, filter should be $25, labor 30 minutes.

Then you have differential oil - no idea about cost of that
