When owning a BMW it is important to know the maintenance and service timeline that revolves around the life of your vehicle. Life can definitely be hectic and you can sometimes forget certain things that should be serviced on your BMW vehicle. As the vehicle gets older, there are things that should be inspected that you may not know about or forget about. Here is a timeline that will help with your BMW service schedule.
