And are you planning on staying in San Francisco, or going back to NJ? If going back to NJ you might want to up your mileage estimate a bit. Going straight through on the freeway is about 3K one way, add in detours and fun roads and it'll be more.
Not trying to discourage or anything of the sort, just trying to help out.
Any idea how much the service in Vegas? $205 isnt too bad for CA, especially for a little piece of mind. Most BMW dealers seem to give a bit more attention to those traveling and passing through. Where would you dispose of oil and filter?
