Earliest 1st inspection 1

So I was noticing that at my current rate, my 1st inspection 1 will be at 13.3k miles. So that got me to wondering who here had the lowest 1st inspection 1 mileage.

Edit: I am referring to what the OBC said, not what your mileage was when you actually had inspection 1 performed.

Edit (again): OK, so I meant the mileage you had when the OBC said you needed your first oil service. although if people want to see who had the 1st insp 1. that cool too.

I don't really understand your edit, but my first service was done at 10,600, when the OBC read 0 miles to 1st service

That HAS to be oilservice, not inspection

for me, somewhere around 22-23K miles. Inspection II should be around 44K

Some people have there Inspection 1 done before the OBC says 0 miles. I am looking for what the OBC says.

BTW, does the M3 have an earlier Insp 1 or do you just drive like a maniac?

gotcha

it's the same as the coupe, I believe. It's all based on gas mileage, basically. I've averaged around 16-17mpg for the year I've had it

OK, I'm confused. Is this for Insp 1 or just the first oil service? The dealer probably told me, but at that point all I got was 'bring it in when this gets to 0', since I had tuned him out as I was trying to adjust the seat. I hate it when I don't pay attention.

The first service is oil, next Inspection I, then another oilservice, then inspection II ------> repeat

You are getting an oilchange...

I dont know the exact details on this, but i was at my dealers and they had an SMG M3 in the showroom. I looked inside, and there was a big yellow sticker on the SMG unit, saying mandatory inspection at 1200 or something.

Maybe someone else can comment on this

M3s, M5s and Z8s require a post break-in inspection.

HACK is correct. They change differential fluid, tranny oil, and (now) engine oil for free at 1200 miles.

My Car Is At The Dealership Right Now

It had exactly 21,500 miles on it when I brought it in yesterday for Inspection I. It was right on the money as there were 0 miles left on the OBC before bringing it in. My first oil change (by the dealership) was at just a bit over 10,000 miles.
