  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi everybody, I wonder if someone could tell me what is the time interval to change the belt on a 2011 bmw 330i auto e92. Currently, the car has done approximately 85000 mile. Do I also have to change the tensioner?

    Hi all Just had my BMW 320d serviced (oil and filter) and noticed when starting that I'm getting a message stating next service is due in 6000 miles? Could this be a cpu error? Major service was done year before so a bit surprised it's stating next service is due so soon. Was serviced at a...

    Hello all, I have a general question. Long story short I just had a major service when my BMW was due a minor at a main dealer. This is all recorded electronically and tells me what was done.

    Can anybody shed some light on why my 2011 BMW X1 (E84) would show the distance left to next service as 8000km, and the next day it has dropped to 250km? I have not been hammering the vehicle, but driving around 100 to 120 km/h:confused

    I bought my first 2nd hand BMW 3 series M Sport last August - I've been very happy with it so far, but realised recently that I hadn't had it serviced yet. I called PMW in Chelmsford (garage recommended on this site) to ask what sort of ballpark time/money I'd be looking at and they advised I...

    I just changed my rear brake pads at the weekend, tried to reset the dash warning light but it just zero'd the rear (and front) service intervals to '-------'. I didn't replace the sensor, could this be the problem? The reset procedure i tried was to press and hold the trip button (on the...

    I have seen on the internet that BMW USA have changed the oil change interval for both petrol and diesel models manufactured after 2013 from 2 years ( or 20,000 miles) to 1 year ( or 10,000 miles).No mention is made about "condition based servicing" and my local BMW garage knows nothing about...

  13. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I am about to buy my first ever BMW (F31 320d) and would like to confirm what I understood about service intervals. What I thought the dealer said was that I don't need to take my BMW in for a yearly service or the warranty would be invalid, rather the car would tell me when the car is ready...

    Hi All, I have just purchased an e36 323i. I am aware of how the service interval works, and the various ways to reset it, peak tool, paper clip, etc. My question is, can you reset the interval counter before it reaches the yellow square? I currently have a few green squares left, but...

  16. Diagnostic Hardware and Software Discussion forum
    Hi everyone, perhaps someone has already tried to replace a faulty IKE dashboard (lots of pixel errors), keeping the remaining 'SI-Tage' (service interval days) and 'SI-Liter' value? Well, I recently gave this cluster to a friend hoping he could fix the problem, but now it's even worse...

    Hi all, after flicking through my condition based monitoring the other day, I noticed my service indication(the one that looks like a car up on the ramp) says 29000 miles and 07/2016. This seems a bit long for me! What's everyone else's set at? And what exactly do they check on this? Regards

    Hi, Took delivery of a new 116i a few weeks ago. Car initially indicated a service due in 2 years or 19000mls. When I turn on ignition it is now saying 600 mls for service and shows a car with yello outline round it. I am confused! Can anyone clarify the service intervals for me? Thanks

    What do you guys think about it? Isn't that too much for an engine? Oil sludge wont be a problem above 100k?
