Sometime I wonder how if using LL04 EO can tahan so long ? LL01 EO maybe can. Especially when running at mid-end often.

It should be at every 12,000km. I easy going driver so service at every 10,000km. If not high reving everyday every minute of drive, you can stick to the recommendation.

Well, if u insist, MA will not stop you even if service every 2,500km :)

Safer to make appointment, unless you're prepared to spend half a day day there waiting, even if there's a slot available.

Honestly, I struggled to understand this logic prescribed by ///M technicians in BMW HQ Germany....

but seems like the local technicians all follow whatever that is prescribed religiously.....


Porsches from Stuttgart auto also similar leh.... 15,000km or 1 year whichever comes first.....

but at least the service reps at Stuttgart will schedule car owners to bring their cars in for an annual oil change.

@MA.... they see the odometer.... so if the car happens to be a low mileage clocker.... eg 2 years...15k km.... then your car only come in for oil change every 2 years??? mad....:screwedu::screwedu::screwedu:
 
Re: 1st Servicing 14,000km?

I send mine for oil change every 10-12K Km.
Got the oil change too, if going longer road trips and the reading is about 9K.

Exactly, last month i called, gave them my mileage as 8000km. Took half day leave went down, they checked my odomeyer and replied ur servicing still not yet due. No choice got to drive off.

Nw im still left with 1000km to go which is approx 2 weeks time
