I personally didnt like Amstar. Very expensive, and didnt like their attitude. I have been pretty happy with Peter Lennox in Thomastown for anything I cant do myself, they are decently priced, and if you are on a budget they will offer you all the options to repair/minimise the problem rather than just saying, nup the whole thing needs to be replaced.
When I had new cars I used to think BMW was bad, charging me $600 for a scheduled oil service, but I got charged $1100 for not much more than an oil service at a prominent inner north eastern suburbs Mercedes Dealership! Its just not worth owning a new benz or BMW, i'd say the servicing costs if you get it done at the dealer would be more than your average yearly repair costs on a 20 y/o benz. ALthough i think now at least BMW is offering 3 years of free servicing so i guess thats something.
