X4 F26 (2015 - Current)
The X4 is a baby X6 and shares a platform with the F25 X3. The F26 X4 is the ultimate combination of sporty and sports utility.

Servicing ?

Hi , I've got a 2019 X4 M40i which I love. It will be 12 months old July 14th When I enquired with the dealer ree the service after 1 yr they said no service until 2 yrs old as I have only done 10,000 kilometers? They don't change oil or filter at say 1000 k as all other new cars I've had did , now not until 2 yrs old. ? As a mechanic all my life I find this a bit disturbing ? I think its just to save THEM money on the free servicing ? I don't use the car a lot as I have a Ford Territory for my daily driver. I am in New Zealand , what is this servicing issue like in the US ? Anyway I pic for the proper BMW filter and oil and changed it myself at 1500 k so will do again at 12 months.

FWIW, in Pa. my local dealer has no problem servicing my X4 under warranty every 10,000(or so) miles or every year, which-ever comes first. AFAIK, those costs aren't borne by the dealer, but billed back to the mfg.

Servicing.

Hi BS , I told the Dealer I will pay for it , I don't mind, they said no they won't do it ? They said the car will tell you when it needs doing ? It says on the dash 21000 to service ? Thar will be in anther two yrs ?? I don't care what they or the car says , 3 yrs is to long to be from brand new to its first oil & filter change. So I will get the genuine BMW filter,and oil and change it myself again. !
