Here is a quick overview of the BMW Recommended Maintenance Schedules 

BMW Preventative Maintenance: Every 5,000 Miles / 6 Months

Two to three times a year, or every 5,000 miles, expect to bring your BMW in for the following routine preventative maintenance:
Brake fluid check
Brake inspection, front and rear
Cabin air filter inspection
Coolant check
Engine inspection
Engine oil check
Tire rotation, if necessary
Vehicle inspection
Wiper blade inspection

Helping you keep track of your BMW's needed service, the Condition Based Service Monitor tracks the condition of important systems in your BMW and can tell you if you immediately require service. Our technicians also use this system to determine what we need to repair or replace when you make a service call.

Recommended Maintenance Schedule

Depending on how and where you drive, and in what conditions, the amount and type of maintenance your BMW will need will vary. Read your owner's manual for a detailed breakdown of common service tasks, but here's what you can expect:
Every 10,000 miles, or yearly: replace engine oil, oil filter, and coolant
Every 20,000 miles, or every two years: inspect and replace fuel filters
Every 30,000 miles, or every three years: Replace brake fluid (after the first replacement, every 60,000 miles), replace transmission fluid on manual-transmission BMWs
Every 60,000 miles, or every six years: Replace engine air filter and spark plugs, inspect, and replace brake pads and brake rotors, as necessary, Replace transmission fluid on automatic-transmission BMWs
Every 90,000 miles, or every nine years: replace timing belts and hoses

After 90,000 miles, repeat the above cycle, and always keep up your 5,000-mile basic maintenance structure. Also remember that your BMW's New Vehicle Limited Warranty will expire at 50,000 miles, so it's a good idea to get covered repairs done
