Service schedule F10 xdrive
 
Is there an official BMW service schedule for things like, air filters, coolant, spark plugs, transfer case, brake fluid etc.
I know that the condition based service minder will pop up oil, brakes pads etc, what about the other stuff?
Is there an official BMW list of what is included at a covered maintenance, like 15k or 1 year etc.
What is inspected, replaced besides oil and filter?
With the engine shroud, an owner cannot even find the brake fluid, power steering etc.

No, there is not.

Email Mike Miller at BMWCCA (google should provide his email address) and ask for his Old School maintenance schedule.

The best one you missed is the service based oil change OR annually. Which is what was used for mine.

Did BMW change the annual oil change to 18 months for the 2012 535xi? My computer is telling me my first oil change is 18 months or 15000 miles which ever comes first?

+1 ... was surprised by the longer time frame; my '07 530xi was based on miles (count-down started at 15K miles) or time - "annually" e.g. once ever year regardless of miles. Since I'm a low mileage driver (10K/yr) I'll still have my dealer perform an oil service annually at the very least. It they want to charge me (their advertised specials are $79) no biggie they know I'll take it out in trade :rofl: by eating their danish and drinking their coffee!
