BMW Maintenance Schedule

BMW Mechanic Looking Under Car In Air


To keep your BMW running in the most optimal condition, it’s important to be aware of the manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule. We understand that you may be driving a brand new BMW through North Haven or you simply may be looking to service your beloved Beamer that’s taken you thousands of miles. Whatever your relationship with your BMW, our service department here at BMW of North Haven is happy to help you determine what your current service needs are based upon the suggested schedule. Read the below for the recommended BMW maintenance plan:

  • BMW Intermediate Oil Service: Your BMW model’s Service Interval System will notify you when it is time for new oil, but you should aim to schedule maintenance about every 7,500 miles. The BMW Intermediate Oil Service includes a full oil change and oil filter replacement. When it comes to components of the BMW maintenance program, this is the least costly and most frequently performed (though not as frequently as other makes). Proper oil maintenance increases your BMW’s longevity.
  • BMW Inspection 1: On newer BMW models, the 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, our trained technicians will ensure that your engine is running at the correct temperature and check the power steering system, rear axle, and transmission for leaks. They will also clean your brake pads, check the brake disc surfaces, and examine the thickness of your brake pads. Further inspection of the tires, wheels, interior, and under the hood are also included in this aspect of the BMW maintenance plan.
  • BMW Inspection 2: This second inspection is known as Major Service. It is recommended at 60,000 miles and 120,000 miles for most BMW drivers and includes all of the elements of the previously listed inspection. Additionally, it includes inspection of the parking brake lining and car body for rust, as well as replacement of spark plugs and air filters, and an examination of flexible boots for leaks.
