2011 BMW 528i: Still The Same Oil

May 06, 2011

Today we reported the cost of the first scheduled service (7,500 mile) on our long-term 2011 Infiniti M56. Oil and filter change and a tire rotation cost us time and $74.38.

The post made me wonder about the servicing of the other fancy sport sedan in our fleet, our 2011 BMW 528i. Well, the BMW has covered 11,500 miles and has yet to need a service. In fact, the car's computer says it won't need an oil change for another 2,500 miles.

And when it does need that oil change it will be at no cost to us because BMW covers scheduled servicing for the first 4 years or 50,000 miles.

Score one for BMW.
