Service Icons.

What are Service Icons?

Depending on the age of your BMW, your vehicle will be fitted with either the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) or Service Interval Indicator (SII) system; both of which will alert you through dashboard symbols, when your BMW needs attention.

Condition Based Servicing (CBS).

Newer BMW models feature Condition Based Servicing (CBS). This system actively monitors various service components for wear, ensuring that your BMW only requests attention when it needs it.

When your BMW does require servicing a CBS icon will display on your dashboard. In addition to this, the vehicle data is stored in your key and read using the BMW KeyReader, allowing the BMW Service team to quickly identify your needs.

Service Interval Indicator (SII).

BMW models built before the introduction of CBS utilise the Service Interval Indicator (SII). This system monitors the mileage of the vehicle and the time since its last service. A variety of dashboard icons will be displayed when it requires a formal Service or Inspection.


Oil Service.

The oil and oil filter in your BMW’s engine should be replaced to ensure optimum performance and help maintain efficiency. The microfilter(s) should also be replaced.


Rear Brakes.

The rear brake pads on your BMW are close to their wear limit and need replacing. Your brake discs should also be checked.

Spark Plugs.

The spark plugs in your petrol engine should be replaced at every second oil service along with the air filter. This icon may not be displayed in your BMW.


Vehicle Check.

Your BMW is due a Vehicle Check Service. This thorough inspection covers a wide variety of elements to help ensure your BMW remains safe, roadworthy and continues to look and perform at its optimum. This symbol may also appear for other vehicle defects that require attention.


Front Brakes.

The front brake pads on your BMW are close to their wear limit and need replacing. Your brake discs should also be checked.


Diesel Particulate Filter.

The diesel particulate filter in your BMW may be blocked or need replacing. Visit your nearest BMW Authorised Centre.


Microfilter.

The microfilter/pollen filter should be replaced with every engine oil service. This icon may not be displayed in your BMW.


Brake Fluid.

The brake fluid in your BMW should be replaced to maintain optimum performance.
