Default Where to Service my car in LA?

I purchased my car from LongoLexus. Looking to service it soon at 15K miles, anyone have a suggestion on where to service it at a reasonable price than the dealer? Thanks.

LTS in Torrance is pretty good. Mike, he's on the forums too. The 15k service u can piece together, and any reliable mechanic can do the major work.

^^^neither am I but a few search for "replacing cabin filter" on google will solve your problem. 8 yrs ago, I made a mistake of paying someone to do it at a mom and pop place, he charged me $60 dollars for the cabin filter. I felt "molested" thinking back because I just complete the task myself for mine and the wife's car. literally it's was 10 min with a cigarette break in between...pm me your email and I'll forward you the procedure...

I just checked and this service includes changing the AC filter and replacing the key battery. Cost $120

Is it even a service that I need? I'm planning on skipping it until the 20K. Will the service notification go away?

If you run synthetic oil @10k already since it requires 10k miles interval, you do NOT need any service at 15k.

AC filter does not really need replacement @ 15k, more likely 30k and this is cheap to buy the part and you can replace it easily inside the car, take like 1 min.

I have 2012 IS250 bought brand new from Longo too.

Here is my recommendation:
10k: oil change.
20k: oil change.
30k: oil change, AC filter change, engine filter change, brake fluid flush, alignment and possibly tires change, rear differential oil change. Inspect brake and rotors (probably still fine, at least on mine).
