BMW and Mini Cooper Maintenance Schedule

Inspection maintenance interval as required by instrument counter:
Driving pattern and condition based intervals are monitored for the next required BMW/Mini maintenance interval. Parts replacement is outlined in owner’s manual. Complete mechanical vehicle safety check and electrical scans as service interval factory requirement performed.

Low mileage annual oil changes per factory requirement:
Keeping the correct quality oil with factory chemical requirements is essential for long engine life to avoid internal sludge damage. Annual oil change required if mileage for regular service interval is not achieved. Required filters & oils inside the factory maintenance schedules replaced as needed. Complete mechanical vehicle safety check and electrical scans as service interval factory requirement performed.

Bi-annual brake fluid system flush:
Moisture accumulates in the brake fluid and if left too long in system over time, causes corrosion to critical moving parts. These moving parts bind and freeze-up causing stopping distance and safety to be affected.

Tri-annual coolant system flush:
Factory long life factory required coolant/antifreeze (blue) ensures system longevity. Mixing other types of non-factory designed fluid will sludge and become syrup like, causing system collapse and unnecessary added expense. Antifreeze/coolant system protection becomes weak and will not dissipate heat or freezing temperatures as needed. Cooling system left unattended will also corrode associated parts and heavy metal build-up in radiator, heater and engine passages will cause restriction leading to failures.

CBS (conditional based service) per instrument maintenance counter:
This system picks the needed single component as required for replacement or calibration per vehicle monitored system for replacement. BMW and MINI have pre-programmed monitors that can immediately turn on a dash maintenance message for service requirements.

60K-100K Mile Spark Plug service:
Long Life BMW/MINI factory quality spark plugs are required parts and essential for best performance and reliability. Aftermarket plugs can cause internal engine damage and unnecessary repair expense.

100K Fuel Filter Service on most vehicles:
Fine internal filter screens stop dirt particles from entering fuel injection system. Unattended, will cause fuel injector restriction, power loss, reduced fuel mileage and associated part failure.

Transmission Service per factory requirement:
All transmissions, stick or automatic need factory required service with filters, seals and gaskets replaced as design required. Different transmission designs need different service intervals with specific BMW/MINI factory oil requirements. Incorrect fluid type will cause irreversible damage and quick failure. Over extending the transmission designed maintenance schedule causes fluid to become weak, filters become restricted and internal overheating will occur, causing excessive wear. Left unattended, eventual complete failure will occur.

Audi and Volkswagen Maintenance Schedule

10K mile (synthetic oil models) and 5K mile (non-synthetic oil models) service intervals per factory maintenance requirements:
Keeping the correct quality oil with factory chemical requirements is essential for long engine life to avoid internal sludge damage. Required filters & oils inside the factory maintenance schedules replaced as needed by mileage. Tire rotation and balance as needed per maintenance requirements. Complete mechanical vehicle safety check and electrical scans as service interval factory requirement performed.

75-80K mile timing belt replacement on required vehicles per amended factory service interval:
Factory branded timing belt parts installed with internal inspection of moving associated components during repair.

Bi-annual brake fluid system flush per factory schedule:
Moisture accumulates in the brake fluid and if left too long in system over time, causes corrosion to critical moving parts. These moving parts bind and freeze-up causing stopping distance and safety to be affected.

Tri-annual coolant/antifreeze system flush per factory schedule:
Full system flush with G++ long life factory required coolant/antifreeze (pink) ensures system longevity. Mixing other types of non-factory designed fluid will sludge and become syrup like, causing system collapse. Antifreeze/coolant system protection becomes weak and will not dissipate heat or freezing temperatures as needed. Cooling system left unattended will corrode associated parts and heavy metal build-up in radiator, heater and engine passages will cause restriction leading to failures.

100K mile fuel filter service:
Fine internal filter screens stop dirt particles from entering fuel injection system. Unattended, this will cause fuel injector restriction, power loss, reduced fuel mileage and associated parts failure.

Transmission service as required by amended factory maintenance interval:
All transmissions (stick or automatic) need factory required service with filters, seals and gaskets replaced as design required. Different transmission designs need different service with specific intervals.
