BMW Maintenance Schedule
KNOW YOUR BMW MODEL’S RECOMMENDED SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE SERVICES — WHY ROUTINE CAR MAINTENANCE IS CRUCIAL FOR Brooklyn AREA DRIVERS
When you think about it, caring for your car really isn’t all that different than caring for the health and well-being of your body. Much in the same way that one day of exercise after months of stagnancy or one healthy meal in the throes of an otherwise unbalanced diet won’t drastically improve your overall health, your vehicle requires a bit more than random services here and there to ensure it is performing at its peak at all times. Invest not only in the occasional care of your BMW but the continued and regular maintenance it truly requires.
Whether you’re a brand-new Bimmer owner, or you’ve been driving your current ride for thousands of miles, the best place to look for advice on what services your car requires, and how often it requires them is your very own BMW owner’s manual. Let’s face it: no one knows the ins and outs of the inner workings of your BMW model better than the folks who engineered it from the ground up. Needless to say, for ideal automotive results, following the BMW brand’s factory scheduled maintenance is your best bet.
- BMW Intermediate Oil Service: In true BMW fashion, when you come into a BMW service center such as ours here at BMW of Brooklyn, you don’t just get an ordinary oil change, but a full and comprehensive oil service. Using premium synthetic oil and Original BMW Filters, this quick and inexpensive service also comes with a courtesy inspection. The Service Interval System will let you know when it’s time for you to have your BMW’s oil changed, but plan on every 5,000-10,000 miles or so. This is also a good time to consider having your tires rotated, as well, so as to extend their wear and reduce noise.
- BMW Inspection 1: On newer BMW models, the Bavarian automaker recommends this Minor Service inspection to be performed at 30,000 miles, 90,000 miles, and 150,000 miles; if you drive an older model, it may be suggested you come in more frequently. During this service, the professionals here at our Brooklyn service department will ensure that your engine is running at the correct temperature, they will check the power steering system, rear axle, and transmission for leaks. They will clean the brake pad contact points, check the brake disc surfaces, and examine the thickness of your brake pads. A number of other service and inspections under the hood, and pertaining to the tires, wheels, body, and interior of your Bimmer are also included.
- BMW Inspection 2: Also known as the Major Service, this larger service is recommended at 60,000 and 120,000 miles for most BMW drivers and includes all of the elements of the previously listed Inspection 1 and inspection of your parking brake lining, replacement of spark plugs, replacement of air filters, examination of flexible boots for leaks, and inspection of the car body for rust.
