From what I've read in the handbook that's supplied with the car, you can supply any consumable (oil, filters, plugs, etc, etc) to the dealer...

You can do whatever you like it's your car and they cannot dictate to you what to do.
I use holde oil 10w-30w GF3 as per book, I do it at home and tell them I don't want an oil change on the service.
