What's included in the 15,000 mile service?

Besides the oil/filter change?
Will they replace your air filter? What about the cabin microfilters? What else do they do?

I'm guessing there is a PDF of the service stuff floating around but I haven't been able to find it after searching.

I am also very interesting to see a pdf.

When I was in for my 25,000km service, I felt like the service tech just went in the car to see whether there were any error messages in the iDrive (like worn brake pads for instance) and other than that they would just change the oil & filter and nothing else. They changed the aircon microfilter only becasue I asked them to do so. Appart from "consumables", aren't they also supposed to check on various parts in the engine, drivetrain and chassis?

So yes, a pdf detailing all items that need to be checked / taken care of would really be handy!

May have found the answer to my own question:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...ht=oil+service

Have many people found that they will replace wiper blades and cabin microfilters?

That gives some good insight.

So I take that the service tech goes through this check list item by item on every service and replaces any consumables and/or fluids when specified either by the CBS or as stated by this document.

I couldn't find when is brake fluid and power steering fluid changed though. For Brake fluid it says "replace brake fluid", but it doesnt say when.

Also, what about engine related components like the belt driving the generator, coolant pump etc, differential oil changes etc. When are these checked?
