When Is My BMW M Series Due for Service?

One of the luxuries of driving a BMW M Series is that it'll keep track of many of its maintenance needs for you through the BMW Maintenance System. Your BMW vehicle is equipped with this integrated system that indicates when its due for these important service tasks:

  • Engine oil
  • Vehicle check
  • Front brake pads
  • Rear brake pads
  • Brake fluid
  • 1,200-mile running-in service (applicable vehicles only)

Simply check the BMW Maintenance System in the information display in your driver dashboard. When you do, you'll see the date and/or mileage at which you're due for each particular service. You also have the option to add in service reminders for your vehicle safety inspection and/or your emissions test, as required by your state.


1,200-Mile Running-In Service

If you drive the BMW M5 or BMW M8, then you command a vehicle that's' designed for high performance. That means an increased power output and maximum engine speeds that can affect other major drivetrain components.

To ensure everything is in working order, you'll want to schedule a Run-In Service, or Break-In Service, as indicated in your control display after your first 1,200 miles on the road. This service will include:

  • Changing the engine oil and filter
  • Changing the rear axle differential oil

The service technicians will also deactivate the running-in check to indicate that this initial service has been completed.


BMW M Series Oil Change Intervals

Your BMW Maintenance System will likely indicate that you're due for an oil change every 10,000 miles. Roughly, that's once per year for the average driver. Never go more than 10,000 miles or one year (whichever comes first) between oil changes to ensure that your BMW M Series vehicle is as efficient as you need it to be.

We even recommend scheduling an oil change at the 7,500-mile interval or around twice per year to be on the safe side. After all, driving with old and dirty oil can lead to irreparable engine damage due to friction or overheating.

Also, make sure to have your tires rotated during this visit.

Every 2nd Oil Change

At roughly 20,000 miles, your BMW M Series will be due for its second oil change. At this time, it'll also need to have its ventilation microfilter replaced. You'll also need to replace the battery in your keys.

Every 3rd Oil Change

At every third oil change visit (after approximately 30,000 miles), have your air filter element replaced and replace your spark plugs.

Every 5th Oil Change

With every fifth oil change service or after an approximate 50,000 miles, change the fluid in the rear axle differential.
