The BMW 3 Series is a stylish sedan with tons of power, interior space, and cutting-edge technologies. While it’s fun to drive, you want it to remain a safe mode of transportation for a long time.

Read through our guide below. Then, contact us for service near Stratham, Portsmouth, and Exeter.

BMW Oil Change

BMW Intermediate Oil Service (Every 5,000 to 10,000 Miles)

The service you’ll need consistently for your BMW 3 Series is an oil and filter change. When your vehicle needs it can vary, based on your driving style and type of oil required:  synthetic vs. conventional.

However, it’s recommended to get this maintenance completed about every 7,500 miles. Otherwise, you can look to the vehicle’s Service Indicator Light or Service Interval System to alert you when an oil change is needed.

BMW Oil & Safety Service (Every 10,000 Miles)

When your 3 Series first hits 10,000 miles on the odometer, the components inspected include the following:

  • Brakes
  • Windshield wipers and wiper fluid
  • Indicator lights and dashboard warning lights
  • Steering linkage and suspension parts
  • Engine coolant

The rubber belts and hoses will be checked, and the tires will also be looked at for pressure and any potential leaks.

Worn Brakes


Battery Test

BMW Inspection 1 (Every 30,000 Miles)

Then there’s BMW Inspection 1 that occurs every 30,000 miles. Various minor services will be completed at this time within a variety of categories.

Under the Vehicle

  • Check the power steering system, rear axle, and transmission for any leaks
  • Check the exhaust system for proper positioning and overall condition
  • Clean the brake pad contact points and inspect the thickness of the brake pads
  • Examine the brake lines for any leaks or damage

Under the Hood

  • Check the antifreeze, coolant, brake, and windshield washer fluids; top off, if necessary
  • Inspect the engine cooling system/heating host connections for any leaks
  • Ensure that the air conditioner is working properly
  • Perform a battery load test

Body & Interior

  • Check the illumination and control of the instrument panel, dashboard, and indicator lights
  • Check the functionality of the washer and wiper system
  • Make sure the mirrors are in proper working order
  • Ensure that the doors, hood, and trunk/tailgate open and close properly

Spark Plug Replacement

BMW Inspection 2 (Every 60,000 Miles)

Every time that your 3 Series hits 60,000 miles, BMW Inspection 2 needs to be completed.

At this maintenance interval, the technician will perform the above work. However, they’ll also complete the following steps:

  • Inspect parking brake lining
  • Replace spark plugs
  • Replace air filters
  • Examine flexible boots for leaks
  • Inspect car body for rust

By completing this work as needed, you can continue to drive your BMW well into the 100,000-mile range.
