What happens during a BMW Service? - Our BMW Service checklist


Lights & Visibility: All external & internal lights are all checked. Windows, wipers, mirrors and registration plates checked for faults or weak points. All parts are then cleaned for clarity.


Interior: Seat belts are tested to check they meet current safety standards. Internal controls, including horn, hazard lights and air conditioning are assessed.


Steering & Drive System: We check all the joints, gaiters and wheel bearings to test for strength and function. Front & rear shock absorbers, as well as the springs, are tested for effectiveness and friction. We also complete a wheel alignment assessment.


Braking System: Complete check of the whole braking system, including pads and discs, making sure your brakes align with current safety standards. We are keeping you and those around you safe.


Under the Bonnet: A complete inspection ensures your engine is in total working order and no faults or leaks are present. We then check all air & oil filters, spark plugs and drive belts and replace them if needed.


Under the Vehicle: All car trays are removed, and then your old engine oil is drained. The transmission system is thoroughly checked for leaks, faults, rust or corrosion. All lines are checked for leaks or defects before trays are replaced.


Tyres: Wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for any signs of corrosion. All tyres, including your spare tyre or inflation kit, are checked for wear and tear. Tyre pressures adjusted as required.


Final Checks: We finish your BMW Service with checks to brake fluid and anti-freeze, making sure all are at the recommended levels provided by the manufacturer. We then refill the engine with new oil. We will update your service record and return your BMW to you when everything is completed, clean and ready to perform.

What type of service does my BMW need?

Every BMW comes with a predefined schedule for servicing, which will be detailed within your vehicle handbook. Your model may also have a dashboard indicator to let you know when and what service is due.

If you don’t have the vehicle handbook and you are unsure of the servicing schedule, our team of BMW technicians can help to determine the best program for you and your BMW.

Savings: Maintenance can prevent costly, extensive repairs. Avoid the extra cost whilst getting the benefit of greater fuel efficiency in a well maintained BMW.
