2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: First Service
May 1, 2014
Our 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo has only been with us since late February, and already it's got over 8,000 miles on its odometer. It's also just called for its first oil change.
We got the "10 miles until service" warning on the instrument panel on the way home. By the next morning when we dropped it off at BMW of Santa Monica, it read "Service Due Since 30mi." Sheesh, judge much?
We showed up at the dealership without an appointment and that was no trouble at all. The car required an oil change, scope, a software update (the advisor wasn't aware of anything driver-facing that would change with this update) and a TSB for a water drain grommet that could, maybe, leak.
It took them about 4 hours to have everything settled and give us a call. Total cost: $0.00 thanks to BMW's free maintenance which is available for 4 years or 50,000 miles.
