BMW and Mini Servicing in Gloucester at Pritchard Motor Services


BMWs manufactured before 2005 had a warranty service plan called Inspection-Based Servicing:

  • Inspection 1 – every 24k miles or 24 months
  • Inspection 2 – every 40k miles or 48 months
  • In addition, an oil service was required annually or every 10k miles

The above servicing schedule kept the BMW warranty intact and the vehicle in good condition.

BMWs manufactured after 2005 have a warranty service plan called Condition-Based Servicing, which means the car tells you what it needs via dashboard lights, the iDrive system, or alternatively, keys can be read, free of charge, at Pritchard Motor Services.

If you wish to access servicing information/requirements via your iDrive system, take the following steps:
  1. Select Vehicle Info
  2. Select Vehicle Status
  3. Select Service Requirements

If you are relying on the dashboard lights to tell you about any servicing requirements, it’s good to know that the relevant servicing light will illuminate approximately 4 weeks before the requirement is actually due.
