The intelligent maintenance system CBS permanently monitors oil levels and the degree of wear and tear on individual components. It also checks the time/mileage recommendations for fixed services. It analyses this data and tells you when a service is next due.
Data can be checked at a glance on your Info Display, which automatically gives you four weeks' notice. The iDrive Control Display gives you exact information on which component needs a check. So you can plan your service appointments well in advance and avoid any unnecessary maintenance work.
Condition Based Service (CBS) Monitoring: BMW 3, 5, 7, X3, X5 Series

Whether your BMW is newly out of warranty or about to turn over 100k (or 200k, or 300k!), performing the BMW factory scheduled maintenance is key to keeping your BMW running safely and reliably for many years to come.
Don't worry, this doesn't mean you'll be visiting your mechanic every 3,000 miles for an oil change -- those days are over. But unless you're a do-it-yourself mechanic, you'll want a relationship with an independent BMW mechanic who can perform these services to factory specifications while saving you hundreds of dollars compared to the BMW dealer.
Recent BMWs will let you know when service is due, but regardless, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the maintenance schedule. BMW scheduled services are grouped into three categories:
(1). BMW Oil & Safety Service: This service is the most frequent and least costly. The typical service interval is 5,000 - 10,000 miles. Service includes an oil change (with filter) and a safety check of your vehicle to check the brakes, indicator lights, rubber belts and hoses, engine coolant, steering linkage, and suspension components. Additionally, your technician will check for fluid leaks, check wipers and wiper fluid, check tire pressure, check the horn, and check the dashboard warning lights.
(2). BMW Inspection I: This is a Minor Service recommended by BMW for 1986 - 1998 models at 20,000, 60,000, and 100,000 miles. On 1999 and later models, it is recommended at 30,000, 90,000, and 150,000 miles.
(3). BMW Inspection II: This is a Major Service recommended by BMW for 1986 - 1998 models at 40,000, 80,000, and 120,000 miles. On 1999 and later models, it is recommended at 60,000 and 120,000 miles.
Adhering to the BMW recommended maintenance schedule will increase the longevity of your vehicle, but this is a decision that can be made based on driving style, budget, and personal preference.
