    Well BMW must have changed that because the inspection list they gave me with all the stuff checked off was nowhere near as long as that

    I never got an inspection list like that, just the sales invoice...

    Though that inspection list looks dead handy, most of those checks I could do myself with a trusty owner's manual. ie: They wanted to charge £200 for changing the rocker cover gasket. I've found a couple of good walkthroughs on other bimmer forums, as well as an excellent video on YouTube describing the job in detail.

    There are limitations on certain models to have the complete list done. Best to ask what was done on the car OP.

    That extensive list is for older cars early E36 & older when brake pads used to be removed cleaned & re greased etc, the labour used to be approx two to three hours depending on model.

    E46 saw the introduction of reduced service times and reduced items done. Brake pads & discs are all checked with the wheels on with Pad measuring depth gauge and a sliding vernier gauge.

    IF the wheels are removed for any reason then they must be greased before refitting.

    All the items to be checked on a service should be listed in the front of your service book

    If changing pads: clean brake caliper cavities.
    Brake discs: Check surface and thickness.
    If changing pads at rear: check parking brake linings.
    Handbrake:
    Condition, and lever travel- unlike the foot brakes, the handbrake is a mechanical function and therefore has to be checked for any necessary adjustment as standard.
    Reset service interval indicator.

    Non-CBS models: What's checked in an Inspection I Service?
    Body/electrical system:
    Lighting system.
