Car Servicing in Cardiff - SWSS BMW
Condition-based servicing was first introduced by BMW back in 2002, CBS is the maintenance system BMW created to manage regular service intervals and maintenance items. Service intervals and maintenance items are no longer services solely based on mileage or time, but now a combination of items. CBS utilises sensors, vehicle driving conditions, and time to determine the service intervals.
Maintenance items monitored by CBS can be viewed via the dashboard (early models), or via the iDrive screen (late models). The displayed maintenance items are engine oil, front and rear brake pad service, brake fluid and cabin microfilter. You can access these items and view the remaining time/mileage until service.
All service information is transferred electronically to the vehicle key, allowing us to read the data at the time of service.
SWSS BMW has the genuine BMW key reader, allowing us to accurately identify what your vehicle requires at the time of service. The ability to see complete vehicle details and histories of completed service maintenance, and what might be due in the near future along with outstanding vehicle recalls.
