Garage List
Check out my thread here ===> Open the BMW Maintenance Link then fill in your car details ... year, make etc.

Download the PDF file (even print it so you have a complete reference for the future).

Once you open the PDF file read more under Condition Based Service (CBS) also refer to your manual you received with your car. The invoice (once your service has been done should list all activities and materials used such as oil etc).

Story for 31k mils service.

They have exchanged brake fluid ,micro filter, wipers (dift left gasket and left door gasket because i said all ready those things) Dift has minor leak and door gasket was separating from below door. They anyway call me because they don't find which door it is! It was off about ten inch below the door. I don't get it, first i tell what is problem and anyway they call me. I think if i didn't tell those thinks all ready, they donít do anything about it. Like motor oil and that one bulb what i didnít say for purposely. But they don't add engine oil, exchange one bulb for tail light. OK small things but anyway they should to do it.

My maintenance appointment was 8.00am but they start to work my car 3.00pm. And i get it next day. OK they need exchange two gasket and brake fluid, but 1 and half day!

When I get my car back door was whistled 40mph and over. I didnít take it back, I donít want waste my time any more. I blued that gasket again because it wasnít installed well and also I need adjust door position. Now itís quiet.

This was my first maintenance visit (because car have it) and last one. I have done maintenance all my cars 10 years and i will do it in the future.

So if you find good maintenance place were you can take your car, use it. There is no so many. People do this work and it dos not quarantinesí if it's BMW dealer or smaller shop. I also work in "maintenance" field, not whit cars. So i really can tell you, people do this work not Brand this case BMW dealer. People who do it, that is the quality of work.
