Hi. I've searched for the answers to these obvious questions but can't find anything conclusive.
With paper service records being consigned to the past, is there any way that a BMW owner can view the service history of their own car without having to sit in the service department of a main dealer having it read out to them?
Secondly, if I start taking my 3-year old G30 to an indie, can they maintain the official service record in the BMW cloud and update the Vehicle Status service times in iDrive?

I seem to recall with a previous 3 series I had I could pay BMW (£10 springs to mind) and they would print off a list of maintenance it had received in dealers. No idea if that’s still the case maybe give local dealer a ring and ask?
Some specialists can update the system, a place not far from me (autoworks swindon) can update the bmw cloud with services and even access the bmw servers for software updates etc.

U are right they can add it if they have the right software it would not be a bmw code on the enter so would not count as part of the bmw(dealer service history) not that they would necessarily remove it(the dealer that is) however they could if they choose to unless the inda garage put code 0000 (in the I drive history entry screen).

Thanks for the replies.
I've figured out how to get the limited service history from the iDrive. I suppose that it contains all the stuff I really need and none of the stuff I don't, so no real reason to grumble. It's just strange having no physical record of the servicing or the repair under warranty they've just done (that they ignored on the "end of warranty check").
So it's a YES to question 1.
I've also found a highly recommended local indie who can access and update the service history in the car and the BMW cloud, so it's s YES on question 2 too.
