The maintenance intervals of motor vehicles have been traditionally dictated by the vehicle mileage. The BMW Maintenance System has changed this by computing maintenance intervals based upon the specific manner in which each individual vehicle is driven.

BMW  development of the unique BMW service interval indicator which computes the actual optimum maintenance requirements based not only upon the accumulated mileage, but taking into account important factors such as:

  • engine coolant temperatures
  • engine speeds
  • short or long trip driving
  • number of vehicle starts

The maintenance intervals are now referred to as "Oil Service", "Inspection I" and "Inspection II".

Whenever the ignition is switched on, the display shows the next scheduled type of service and the remaining distance until the service should be performed.
