So, What’s the Problem? You see, BMW stretches the oil service intervals ten to fifteen thousand miles, reducing their out of pocket maintenance costs during the in-warranty period.Recommended services used to be in the three to five thousand miles intervals, by getting on the synthetic oil technology tailcoat, pencil-pushers in the accounting headquarters were able to curtail costs by minimizing your maintenance trips to dealers, making claims that you don’t have to change your fluids in your transmission and other drivetrain components. They claim to use “lifetime fluids”.
Whose lifetime? The lifetime of your transmission, that is. Your BMW Transmission will last longer if you just change its fluid and filter every 50 thousand miles or so. As a matter of fact, one of the most common BMW transmission supplier (ZF), recommends the fluids to be changed, however, BMW opts not to. BMW would rather sell you a new transmission or guide you over to the “New Car” section for you to buy their latest model.
These extended scheduled services cause less frequent visits to the dealer or the shop of your choice, which may in turn lead to disregarding certain safety components such as brakes, suspension and tires. A worn suspension system can accelerate tire wear and create an unsafe condition very quickly. Potholes and curb-damage are the main cause of your BMW’s alignment to be out of spec. in the Dallas area.
