What Is My BMW Maintenance Schedule?

Blue BMW SUV

Most Greenwich drivers like to keep their vehicles running in top shape, whether they’re driving a brand new car or something a little older. And that means holding to a good car maintenance schedule. But you may be wondering, “What is my BMW maintenance schedule? How often should I get an oil change? When should I rotate my tires? What about a BMW tune-up?” Get all the answers you’re looking for below.

How Often to Service a BMW

Wondering what services are required in the BMW maintenance schedule? No two vehicles are exactly alike, so you should always reference your car’s manual for details. The guide below outlines maintenance from 3,000 miles all the way up to your BMW 50,000-mile service, so you can get a good idea of how often you’ll need a BMW tune-up and other recommended services:

Every 3 Months or 3,000 Miles

  • Change the oil and oil filter
  • Lube the chassis (older vehicles, see your car’s manual)
  • Check and top off the fluids (coolant, steering, transmission, brake, etc)
  • Check the wiper blades (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the air filter (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the headlamps and signal lights (Replace if needed.)
  • Check the tire treads and air pressure (Inflate if needed. Replace once tread is worn.)

Every 6,000 – 8,000 Miles

  • Rotate all four tires

Every 20,000+ Miles

  • Change the spark plugs (“Long life” spark plugs can last much longer.)

Every 30,000 Miles

  • Change the belts

BMW 50,000-Mile Service

  • While there are no special maintenance services required when your BMW reaches 50,000 miles (aside from those scheduled at 5,000 or 10,000 miles), after four years or 50,000 miles your New Vehicle Limited Warranty will expire. It is a good idea to take care of BMW repairs on covered parts in advance at our authorized BMW Service Center.

How Much is Maintenance on a BMW?

BMW scheduled maintenance costs will vary depending on the services required. So, how much is maintenance on a BMW? Basic 5,000 and 10,000-mile services typically run between $150 and $400, while more extensive maintenance services may be closer to $1,000. Note that all new BMW vehicles come with three years or 36,000 miles of BMW Ultimate Care. This BMW maintenance program covers core services according to the guidelines laid out in your owner’s manual. In addition, BMW of Greenwich offers rotating service specials and coupons to help you save while keeping up to date with your BMW maintenance schedule.

Master the BMW Maintenance Schedule with Condition Based Service

The BMW maintenance schedule given above is a rough outline, and the guidelines in your owner’s manual are based on the brand’s rigorous testing and experience. Ultimately, however, you’ll need to get familiar with your Condition Based Service system. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • A BMW vehicle is a high-precision machine, and at the end of the day, a maintenance schedule is simply an estimate of what your vehicle will need, and when.
  • That’s why every new BMW vehicle includes a Condition Based Service system–an automated monitor that measures oil life and other core fluids while tracking the behavior of key components!
  • Although you should stick as closely as possible to the schedule laid out in your owner’s manual, Condition Based Service allows you to counteract the effects of local conditions and individual driving behaviors. It will also let you know if you’ve missed something important!
