Back in the day maintenance used to be based upon mileage. Now-a-days, manufacturers are taking driving factors into consideration when planning maintenance schedules.
In the world of BMW’s, services are now being referred to as “condition based services” (CBS). What this means is that maintenance is no longer determined by your mileage but rather other factors such as length of drive times and speed variations (ie. Stop and go traffic, short drive cycles with more cold starts, etc.). This new service program is able to work due to sensors that are throughout the vehicles that are able to gather detailed information about your driving conditions. When your vehicle is requiring maintenance of any kind, the required intervals are displayed on the dash.
- Oil Change: Every 5,000 – 7,500 miles with synthetic oil
Other service lights that you will see on the dash of your BMW are the Inspection I and Inspection II. The Inspection I is due every 15,000 mile. The Inspection I usually consists of an oil change and filter replacements. At this time we also perform a complete inspection of the suspension, engine, brakes, etc.
Inspection II at every 30,000 mile intervals, alternating with the Inspection I and usually consists of looking at all the safety items such as belts, hoses, battery, brakes, etc.
All German Auto also offers a variety of pre-purchase/buyers inspections if you’ve recently purchased a BMW or are looking to purchase one!
