How does the service regime work ?

Post by TBH1 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 9:21 am

From what I can see there are no set service intervals and it is down to the on-board computer to decide when a service is required. If that is right, what are the service intervals likely to be for a 218i petrol auto that is driven in town but only approx 2 - 3,000 miles per year ? Before someone else makes the point, I know that is rather an odd use of a car that describes itself as an 'Active Tourer' !

With very low mileage, services will 'time-out' at 24/36 months instead.

I too am a low mileage user at about 6-7000 miles per year, mainly on short urban journeys but with occasional 150 mile+ journeys. My AT was bought new in June 2016 (with a service package) and is showing a service due in 11000 miles in May 2018. My plan is to keep the car for a good while. My question is whether the condition based servicing takes account of the high proportion of short journeys/cold starts and whether it would be be sensible to have the oil changed at the 1 year point?

A battery bike would do all you need as it must cost you 3.5 pounds a mile for that now milage.
