Service Interval Information

How Often Should I Service My Car?

No matter the model or year of BMW that you own, regular maintenance is important if you want to keep your car running at optimal performance and avoid potentially costly breakdowns. BMW provides owners with a recommended maintenance schedule that aims to check all of the important components of your vehicle to make sure that they're working properly.

You should always refer to your vehicle's owner manual, as the specific service intervals will vary between models and vehicle years. Here is a general guide of what you can expect once your car reaches a certain number of miles:

15,000-Mile Service

This service should be conducted every 15,000 miles or at least once a year. It involves a complete oil change and oil filter change. This service also includes an inspection of various vehicle components, including windshield wipers and their fluid levels, brakes, horn, indicator and dashboard warning lights, engine coolant, suspension components, steering linkage, rubber belts and hoses, as well as a tire pressure check.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 30,000-Mile Service

    This service includes everything in the 15,000 mile inspection, in addition to some more thorough verifications. Your tire pressure will be checked and all wheel center hubs should be greased. The mechanic should also check all fluid levels (antifreeze, coolant, windshield washer, brake, clutch), perform a battery load test, verify the engine temperature, check the power steering system, inspect the exhaust system, check the brake pad contact points and the thickness of your brake pads, examine your break lines and clutch system for signs of damage, check all interior and exterior lighting, inspect safety belts and airbag units for signs of wear or damage, as well as verify that your heating and air conditioning blowers are working properly.
