2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Second Service
October 2, 2014
As we reported last week, it was time to bring our 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo to the dealer for maintenance. It was calling for a basic oil change and nothing more. Pretty straightforward, right?
For the most part, it was. We arrived at Santa Monica BMW early in the morning without an appointment. There were plenty of cars in the service bay, but we were told our car would be ready for pickup in the afternoon. It would have been ready as promised, but while the car was at the dealer we received an email from a BMW representative asking us to take the car in for an update to its computer.
We contacted our service advisor and left the 328i at the dealer overnight so they could address the reflash the next day. When we picked up the car, the computer had received its updates and BMW's maintenance program covered the oil change and air filter.
Total cost: $0.00
