Question Question about no charge maintenance.

Hello,

I am in the market for 328ix(or 335ix) and I have some questions about no charge maintenance that comes with BMW. I used to own a 5 series long time ago and BMW didnít have no charge maintenance back then.

Currently, I own MB GLK350 (donít laugh, I know its chickís car) and schedule maintenance is quite a bit.

I would like to know especially in Canada, if you had to pay anything extra thatís not covered by no charge maintenance.

Here are the lists of whatís covered by scheduled maintenance (Info from BMW Canada Web site)
- Engine oil change including oil filter
- Service/replacement of air filter, fuel filter, micro filter, spark plugs
- Service brake fluid
- Service vehicle check Thanks in advance.

Note: I understand that anything thatís consumable like Brake pad/disc/clutch/tire is not covered.

Thanks in advance

Like you said, you'll have to pay for wipers, tires, brake pads...

Maybe the new F30 owners are too new to experience the schedule maintenance, but I am interested to know if BMW service department try to up sell something thatís not necessary or required.

Also, do they give you a free loaner when the car is in service (schedule or not schedule)?

within the first 4 years of free service, there's almost no "upsell", esp if you're a low mileage driver.

free bmw loaners from quinn group but excluding express services (oil, filter, quick service jobs)
