BMW Condition Based Servicing

Most BMW models now feature Condition Based Servicing (CBS), which replaces the older Inspection 1 & 2 style service system. CBS works by using sensors to constantly monitor driving style, cold starts, oil condition and parts subjected to wear and when the service component is no longer working at full efficiency. It will alert the driver by lighting up the service symbol on the dashboard.

The driver is able to access this information using the on board computer system. Your Service Consultant will assess this information in order to provide suitable service recommendations and costings.
