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. 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.

Overtime the brake fluid in your car becomes less effective. The braking system in your BMW contains complex parts that rely on brake fluid to perform their hydraulic tasks. Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture with age. This moisture in turn creates corrosion within internal brake components and decreases the boiling point of the brake fluid, thereby reducing braking effectiveness and increasing stopping distances. Therefore, a vital part of your BMW car maintenance is to change your brake fluid to ensure safety of brake components. BMW recommends your brake fluid is changed every 2 years.
European law, known as 'Block Exemption', changed in 2003 to allow independent garages to carry out a BMW service without invalidating your BMW warranty. As we use only high-quality parts which are either original manufacturer parts or of 'Original Equipment' (OE) quality as standard, your service with Mercedes, BMW and Audi Independent means that your car has its warranty protected.
