How often should you service your BMW car
sunshineauto posted a topic in Repairs & MaintenanceOne of the most frequent questions that many BMW owners have is how often they should bring their car in to be serviced. For the optimal functioning of your BMW car, it is very important that you have a regular schedule for performing routine maintenance. This allows you to fix minor problems that turn into major ones if avoided and that could result in your car being off the road for several days. Diligently keeping up with periodic maintenance will also boost the resale value of your car. Ideally, when your BMW is due a service, the intelligent maintenance system will notify you using the range of icons on the dashboard. Check the status of a list of options, including engine oil, front brake pads and vehicle check, and when they require maintenance. The following are the different types of services that are required to be checked in with: 15000 Mile service: This is called the “Safety & Oil Service” that BMW usually recommends that you do every 15,000 miles or 12 months. Your oil and oil filter will be changed and your vehicle will be inspected to make sure that it isn’t suffering from any fluid leaks. 30,000-Mile Service: After 30,000 miles, BMW recommends that a more thorough check of your car be done. This check is commonly referred to as the “Inspection 1.” It includes inspecting several components underneath your BMW, checking the tires and wheels, doing several kinds of verifications under the hood, and inspecting the body and interior. 60000-Mile Service: After 60,000 miles, BMW recommends that the “Inspection 2” be performed. This involves verifying all of the components in the first inspection (done at 30,000 miles), as well as doing additional inspection work. This includes checking the parking brakes, replacing all air filters, replacing the spark plugs, examining the flexible boots to see if they’ve developed a leak and inspecting the car body for signs of rust. 90,000-Mile Service: Once you’ve driven for 90,000 miles, for most models of BMW cars built after the year 1999, the manufacturer simply recommends that the “Inspection 1” be repeated again. This means that all of the components that were inspected and changed after 30,000 miles will be serviced again.
