2009 BMW M3 Sedan: 1,200-Mile Service

April 27, 2009

2009 M3 Service Blog.jpg

As part of the break-in procedure, a service is required at 1,200 miles. They change the oil (10w60) and the final drive gear oil and check for potential updates to the software-- there were none. The service took BMW of Beverly Hills about 4 hours and cost absolutely nothing. The GT-R's 1000-mile service only cost $179 because they didn't have official pricing yet.

Free maintenance, I dig it.
