Inspection II on 1995 E34 ///M5 (UK)

Just rang around a few local BMW dealers (I'm in North Hertfordshire, England) to get a quote for an Inspection II for my 1995 E34 M5. Also asked for a price for Brake Fluid change.
The quotes (including VAT were): Sycamore, Peterborough - 770.00 Elms, Cambridge - 772.17 PLUS oil (!) Specialist Cars, Stevenage - 799.92 Bridgegate, Derby - 530.00
Quite a difference - Bridgegate are 240 cheaper than the cheapest of the rest! Only problem for me is the distance to Derby (130 miles), and having to stay over (they need the car for 2 days for an Inspection II) - the additional cost and hassle make it less attractive.
Anybody know of a BMW Dealer (car has a FBMWSH which I want to keep up) nearer to me that has Bridgegate-like prices?
For what it's worth, a Brake Fluid change would cost: Sycamore, Peterborough - 65.00 Elms, Cambridge - 119.00 Specialist Cars, Stevenage - 44.25 Bridgegate, Derby - 78.00

Philip,
'fraid I can't help personally, but check out the www.bm3w.co.uk forums. You have to register, but it's free and there's loads of info on there (No, I'm not affiliated :) ) and plenty of other owners to warn you of dodgy dealers!

Man, you guys in Europe pay way too much. In South Africa, the local stealer quoted me ZAR1,800 for an inspection II on my E36 328i the other day. I had it serviced at another, private BMW specialist for ZAR1,068. This included brake system and coolant system flush. New oil, new plugs, new oil filter, new fuel filter, new air filter, grease and complete inspection. Labour amounted to ZAR350
GBP 1 = ZAR 11.77
Cheap, wouldn't you say?

We get royally shafted over here for sure, but I think M5 servicing is expensive even for a BMW!!
