Of all the fluids involved with helping your BMW vehicle run properly, engine oil is among the most important. Properly maintaining engine oil with routine changes and filter replacements is BMW car care 101.

While it's easy to simply report into our service center for your scheduled oil change appointments, you may want to know more about this common service.

Function and Importance

So, you know that oil changes are important and common for BMW vehicles. But what does the service actually accomplish?

To put it simply, an oil change service drains out old, dirty oil and replaces it with fresh oil. The service also replaces the oil filter with a new one. Oil gets dirty and loses its effectiveness over time, so it's important to replace it with a fresh batch every now and then. This keeps engine components properly lubricated and helps to prevent unnecessary wear and tear.

Frequency and Mileage

The frequency of oil change mileage intervals can vary widely among BMW models. Older models need more frequent services -- usually every 3,000 miles or every six months. Some newer models have longer oil change intervals, ranging from every 10,000 miles to up to 15,000 miles. You can check your owner's manual to find specific recommendations or chat with your technician for advice.
