Servicing Explained
Condition Based Servicing

Newer BMW models feature a technology at the forefront of service innovation called Condition Based Servicing, which ensures your BMW only receives attention when it needs it, saving time and money. CBS sensors monitor the condition of parts such as spark plugs, filters, and brake pads as well as all operating fluids. A microchip in your remote control key stores the data, which our BMW Approved Technicians download via a KeyReader. We use Genuine BMW Parts to restore your BMW to optimum condition.

 
Standard scope
- Carried out at every visit including diagnostic interrogation, check indicator and warning lights on instrument cluster and reset CBS display
- Check and verify any control messages
- Complete and stamp service book

 
Vehicle check
- Check condition of vehicle systems including:
- Exterior panelling and underbody for corrosion and damage
- Tyres, steering and shock absorbers
- Electrical systems including battery, headlights and indication field lighting
- Safety including brakes and seat belts
- Coolant and fluid levels

 
Engine oil
- Engine oil and oil filter changed
- Check handbrake
- Every third oil change: replace air filter and fuel filter (if diesel)
- An oil change can increase the longevity of the engine parts. Replacement of filters can reduce fuel consumption

 
Micro filters
- Replace micro filter/pollen filter in heating or air conditioning system to prevent pollen or dust entering through the vents
-Micro filters trap 80% of pollen and traffic fumes maintaining a pleasant passenger environment. They also ensure fast demisting in winter

 
Brake fluid
- Replace brake fluid every two years: brake fluid is hydroscopic (absorbs moisture) and so its performance deteriorates over time
- Replacement brake fluid reduces corrosion of ABS components and steel pistons as well as maintaining braking performance

 
Diesel filter
- Replace diesel fuel filter ensuring particle-free fuel providing optimum fuel flow and performance
- Replacement diesel filter important in engine efficiency

 
Front brakes
- Change brake pads
- Clean caliper cavities
- Replace discs if worn to minimum levels
- Brakes are maintained to ensure high performance and constant safety

 
Rear brakes
- – Change brake pads
- Clean caliper cavities
- Check condition, brake lining thickness and function of handbrake
- Replace components if necessary
- Brakes are maintained to ensure high performance and constant safety

 
Spark plugs
- Replace worn or defective spark plugs to ensure optimum performance, fuel economy and low emissions
- Replacement spark plugs will improve engine performance and avoid any chance of engine misfire

 
NCT
- Statutory inspection for vehicles three years and older
- Annual check comprising of over 150 safety-related items and emission system test
- Items checked include headlights, steering, brakes, suspension, instrument cluster, seatsseatbelts, windscreen/wipers, VIN, doors and wheels/tyres

Service Interval Indicator (SII)
Pre CBS BMW models feature a Service Interval Indicator that monitors specific usage and driving
conditions and gives ample warning when maintenance is required. The Service Interval Indicator counts down the mileage until your next service. Once any work is carried out our BMW Approved Technicians reset the indicator. We use Genuine BMW Parts to restore your BMW to optimum condition.
- Change engine oil and oil filter
- Heater/air conditioning: change micro filter/pollen filter
- Check thickness of front and rear brake pads and discs
- Check handbrake condition, travel and adjust

 
Inspection I
- Safety checks including, lighting, electrical systems, steering and braking components
- Heater/air conditioning: renew micro filter/pollen filter
- Check for roadworthiness and engine condition including tyres, oil, oil filter, battery, coolant and fluid levels

 
Inspection II
As Inspection I plus:
- Replace spark plugs (if petrol)
- Intake silencer: replace air filter element

 
Brake fluid change
- Replace brake fluid, brake fluid is hydroscopic (absorbs moisture) and so its performance deteriorates over time
- Replacement brake fluid reduces corrosion of ABS components as well as maintaining braking performance
- Change on two year cycle

 
Brake pad/Disc change
- Change brake pads and clean all brake caliper cavities
- Check surface and thickness of discs, replace if necessary
- Check handbrake condition, travel and adjust or replace if necessary

 
NCT
- Statutory inspection for vehicles three years and older
- Annual check comprising of over 150 safety-related items and emission system test
- Items checked include headlights, steering, brakes, suspension, instrument cluster, seats/seatbelts, windscreen/wipers, VIN, doors and wheels/tyres

 
Routine Maintenance Check
- Items checked include lights, warning lights, wiper blades, anti-freeze, coolant levels, engine oil levels, clutch hydraulics, drivebelt, battery, tyres, brakes, steering and exhaust
- Covers important minor regular checks to ensure your BMW is in peak condition
