Condition Based Servicing (CBS)​

The intelligent maintenance system CBS constantly monitors your oil levels and degree of wear and tear on your BMW. It also checks the time/mileage recommendations for fixed services and analyses the data to inform you when your next service is due.

Data can be checked on your Info display, which automatically gives you four weeks' notice. The iDrive Control Display gives you exact information on which component needs a check, so you can plan your service appointments in advance and avoid unnecessary maintenance work.

CBS can also be accessed through non-iDrive models.


Watch the animation below which will guide you through this process. Alternatively, contact us for more information.
