Vehicle Check Service Appt

I have a service due on that is on the I drive ( Vehicle Check Appt ) I have approx 25k, has anyone else had this done, is this just a profit making situation for the dealership such as stating I need alignment , tires, etc ? I also assume this is a required service since it is on the CBMS.

There is a user-settable service setting that isnt driven by BMW nor the vehicle conditon. If this was set, you may be seeing this. In any event, 'required' serice is free- while this may be your dealer 'offering' and optional service at additional cost "to keep your investment in tip top shape" it cannot be mandatory if there is a charge.

Ard, are you sure this isn't driven by CBS? I have it showing now coincidentally at 82k km just outside of the free maintenance window, and if it isn't, I'll just reset the service indicator

i am not sure. You could always bop in and ask them to read your key and give you a written estimate for service.
