BMW launched condition based servicing in 2002 on the 7 Series and it is now present in the majority of the range. Here is how it works,
Condition Based Service – explained
Condition Based Service (CBS) was first introduced with the BMW 7 Series and is an evolution of the service interval indicator that has featured on other models in the BMW range.
All current models are equipped with the CBS system except for X3 and Z4.
The CBS system is at the forefront of service innovation, and for this reason we want to ensure that you understand its principles and benefits.
CBS – how it works…
CBS employs sensors to monitor the condition of worn parts and to ascertain the extent to which servicing is necessary.
Maintenance is not necessary until such times as wear progresses to defined limits. This flexibility in defining maintenance intervals and the scope of maintenance work required means that only those components that the sensors show to be due for maintenance are serviced. In essence, this system allows each service to be tailored to the requirements of each and every BMW.
In the 1 Series and new 3 Series models, this system is in its fourth level of development. This level of CBS offers the following benefits:
- The remaining distance and / or absolute service-due date are calculated and shown separately.
- With flexible service intervals (engine oil, micro filter, front and rear brake pads, and particulate filter changes (diesel only) the last service interval is taken as the new starting value.
Once your vehicle is out of manufacturers warranty we recommend you follow the BOSCH BRONZE, SILVER AND GOLD service schedules which are more in depth than the dealers and are designed to keep your vehicle in safe and well maintained after the warranty period has expired.
