Looking at WhatCar's comparison of the 1.9JTDm and a BMW320d ES I was a bit surprised to see the 3 years' servicing estimates for the GT were nearly £1700 versus a piffling £300 for the BMW.
Do they have some kind of Mini type TLC package? Clearly the 12k services on the GT would require 3 versus 2 for the 320 over 36k but the figure seems high. Any ideas what main dealer services at 12, 24 and 36 roughly cost normally?
Are they really £500-600 a pop on a 1.9 diesel?
