Why Regularly Service Your BMW?
BMWs are luxury cars. They are well made and durable. Resale values tend to be high, the lifespans long, and reliability second to none. But they are made with the expectation of being serviced appropriately, and these traits depend on being well taken care of. If you take care of your BMW with regular servicing by a luxury car specialist, it will take care of you.
BMW’s Above Average Service Intervals
BMW’s have a default recommended service interval of between 30,000 to 35,000km. This is well above the norm because BMW use a unique Efficient Dynamics design and superior synthetic oil. A reputable luxury car service centre like Southbank Prestige Service Centre use the same genuine BMW oil to refill your car. This is essential to maintaining these extended service intervals. Pre 1995 BMWs should be serviced every 20,000km or every 12 months, whichever comes first.
Other Indications That You Should Service Your BMW
It is a good idea to
- regularly check your BMW components for visible wear.
- Take note of dashboard icons – 1995 and newer BMWs have intuitive service indicators built into the dashboard.
- Have a mechanic check the service data stored in modern BMW keys.
- Also consider how long it has been since your BMW’s last service, especially if you drive infrequently or only short distances.
