Service at 70k miles (what items)

Post by invisible » Tue May 22, 2018 10:47 pm

I have the 2014 car in my signature. It's come to 72k miles and 2000 miles from next oil.
Brakes, fluid are fine.
I am thinking this, but can anyone advise?
1. Oil / oil filter / fuel filter
2. Spark Plugs (never changed)
3. Quaife diff oil (never changed over 60k miles)
4. Man box oil (changed after tortuous track day 20k miles ago)
5. Suspension checkover

Anything missing? Anything to add?

Ta.
Current: M135i 5-dr Man, MG with Black, heated lumbar seats, sunroof, aftermarket HiFi, DMS remap, Bilstein B8, Eibach Pro-Kit, Quaife LSD

Yep it's the fuel filter I'm interested in - how often should it be replaced, is it replaced?

From the "M~lite FAQ's" thread....

Standard Service Intervals

The M-Performance models are assigned the already familiar standard intervals of the BMW models.

A running-in check is not carried out on these vehicles.

These cars have condition based servicing enabled, but they typically adhere to the following guidelines/intervals.

Vehicles concerned:

F20: M135i, M135i xDrive M140i, M140i xDrive
F21: M135i; M135i xDrive M140i, M140i xDrive
F22: M235i, M235i xDrive M240i, M240i xDrive
F23: M235i, M235i xDrive M240i, M240i xDrive

Country specific deviations may apply. For countries with lower-quality fuel grades, comply with the country-specific intervals.

Engine Oil
Change engine oil approximately every 30,000 km/24 months.

Microfilter
Renew at every engine oil change (approx. 30,000 km).

Air filter
Renew at every 2nd engine oil change (approx. 60,000 km).

Spark plugs
Renew at every 2nd engine oil change (approx. 60,000 km).

Vehicle Check
Carry out vehicle check for every 2nd engine oil change (approx. 60,0000 km), after 48 months at the latest.

Brake Fluid
Renew at 36 months, then every 24 months thereafter.
Air filter and cabin filters a good shout MP. :wink:
