Hi Everyone

I just got an estimate for my 30k service.

I have not had the drive belt replaced since new. The total for the service was 2100$ Canadian of which 1098$ was for the belt replacement, how easy/ difficult is it to replace the belt and would i need special tools.

Many thanks.

Dave the job takes about 1.5 or 2 hours if you are in the Toronto area I can help you out. I have done my belt 3 times now. One special tool. They are charging you 500 plus for the belt alone. You can get one for about 150 other sources. Have you had the chain adjusted?

That's a crazy price for a belt, you're right about the getting one for 150. Im in wasaga beach, not too far from Richmond hill. I haven't had the chain adjusted yet, that was part of the other 1000$. Ive done oil change and brakes.

I also have a 2019 400gt.

I have to give my "two cents worth" here about those belts. I have a 2013 Gt and have gone thru three belts. The factory BMW belts are of a higher quality than the cheaper ones. You always get what you pay for. Went thru two cheaper ones before the factory spec. allows me the confidence to travel more.

Three belts? How many miles (or kilometers)?

And were they the Mitsuboshi brand or another and, if so, what was the other brand? Highly unlikely that BMW make their own belts, so it has to be some other manufacturer that may also sell under their own name.

I'm running a Mitsuboshi from Carpimoto on my 2013 C650GT. runs just fine. I think it's made in the same factory as the OEM one, certainly the one I bought had exactly the same markings, in the same fonts, etc as the OEM one I took off - it just lacked the BMW badge.
