BMW Condition-Based Servicing
For petrol or diesel models: BMW's iDrive system utilizes a condition-based service plan. Providing drivers with alerts when a service is required for specific components. If the component does not need service, the iDrive system will indicate an "OK" message.
However, if a service is necessary, a warning triangle will appear. This notifies the driver that it's time to schedule maintenance. Ignoring the warning could lead to the suboptimal performance of the BMW. With expensive repairs in the future.
To determine when the next service is needed, the Condition Based Servicing model takes into account several factors. This includes the engine oil sensors, distance driven, fuel consumed, and driving conditions.
Temperature, terrain type, and driving style can all affect the recommended service intervals.
Light driving conditions. Such as normal ambient temperatures. Or flat city driving, driving without long periods of engine idling. This may require service every 7,500-10,000 miles. Moderate driving conditions. Including off-road or hilly driving, long periods in hot or cold temperatures, or towing. This may require service every 5,000-7,499 miles. Extreme driving conditions. As lots of off-road and mountain driving, towing with heavy loads, driving in hot or cold temperatures, or idling for extended periods. This needs a service every 3,000-4,999 miles.
BMW EV models have specific service intervals based on mileage. This ensures that the car operates well and detects potential issues before they become major problems. These service intervals vary depending on the model but typically include service at 10,000, 20,000, and 30,000-mile intervals. With significant service milestones at 40,000 and 60,000-mile intervals.
