I'm a new bmw owner...I just bought it about 2 months ago...I have a question about the inspection miles that is shows...it says that i have 900 miles before inspection.....how does that number reset? and do i HAVE to get it inspected??? and does it have to be at a bmw dealer?
The number is calculated based on your driving habits. If you spend more time at higher revs or in city traffic, the countdown will dwindle more quickly. I actually prefer to have oil services at shorter intervals than the service indicator calls for. I just don't want to use the same oil for 15000 miles.
If you are still under warrranty, why not have it done by a BMW dealership for free? Otherwise, you can either do it yourself, or find a good, reputable shop in your area
First what is the Year, Model and Miles of your car?
yes it is HIGHLY recommended that you have the inspection done.
