BMWscheduled service is grouped into three categories: Oil Service & Safety Service, Inspection 1, and Inspection 2. More recent BMWs will let you know when BMWservice is due, but regardless, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the maintenance schedule. Read the schedule below and then be sure to get your vehicle in to our service centre as needed.
BMW Intermediate Oil Service. This service is the most frequent and least costly service. The Service Interval System will let you know when it is time to Change Your Oil, but a typical interval on a modern BMW will be 8,000 - 10,000 km.
BMW Oil & Safety Service: This service includes an Oil Change (with filter) and a safety check of your vehicle that includes crucial items including: brakes, indicator lights, rubber belts and hoses, engine coolant, steering linkage, and suspension components. Additionally, your technician will check for fluid leaks and check the dashboard warning lights.
BMW Inspection 1: The BMW Inspection 1, also known as the Minor Service, is the smaller service recommended by BMW. ($200 for inspection; plus any additional parts & labour) On 1986 - 1998 models, it is recommended at 32,000km, 100,000km, & 175,000km On 1999 and later models, it is recommended at 50,000km, 150,000km, & 225,000km

BMW Condition Based Service
Condition Based Service (CBS), keeps you in tune with your car. CBS calculates and monitors the status of wearing components and fluid levels as well as time and mileage based services. As a result, rigid service schedules have become a thing of the past. It also checks the time/km recommendations for service intervals. It analyzes this data and tells you when BMW Service is next due. This information can be checked at a glance in your InfoDisplay or Control Display (depending on your model). The Service Requirement Indicator on the InfoDisplay automatically gives you four weeks notice so you can plan your service appointments well in advance and avoid any unnecessary maintenance work. With the Condition Based Service, you save time and money.
Components supported by CBS The type of CBS components supported on a particular model will vary depending on specification and engine type. Items fall into 2 main groups:
1) Sensor based items These items are monitored by physical and virtual sensors with some reference being made to variables such as vehicle mileage, driving styles and temperature. Items included in this group are: - Engine Oil: Monitored by the DME/DDE engine control module - Micro Filter/Pollen Filter: Monitored by the IHKA climate control module - Front Brake Pads: Monitored by the DSC stability control module - Rear Brake Pads: Monitored by the DSC stability control module - Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF): Monitored by the DME/DDE engine control module
2) Internally calculated items Certain items monitored by the CBS system do not require physical sensors. These serviceable items still operate under fixed intervals with remaining service life calculated by the instrument cluster based on time and distance. Items included in this group are: - Brake Fluid - Spark Plugs - User Interface - Instrument Cluster
The instrument cluster gives advanced notification of any pending service requirements via information displayed on the LCD. This is displayed in the form on a ‘SERVICE’ warning followed by information relevant to the component requiring maintenance. BMW aim to give approximately four weeks advanced notification of any maintenance requirements to prevent drivers accidentally ‘running over’ service schedules.
i-Drive Further information can be accessed via the i-Drive system. By navigating through the BMW i-Drive menu into the ‘Service Menu’, it is possible to check the current state and remaining serviceable life of all CBS monitored components. Each item will be highlighted in either Green, Yellow or Red and display a percentage value indicating remaining serviceable life. Green Item = No service required at present Yellow Item = Service life nearing its end Red Item = Service deadline has been passed
