I can’t get my car serviced due to coronavirus shutdown. Will this impact my warranty?
“Our vehicles use condition based servicing (CBS) to actively monitor when your car requires a service. To maintain the BMW warranty customers should ensure their vehicle is serviced as close as possible to the expected service schedules.
All cars serviced within 3 months or 2,000 miles (whichever is earlier) of the service indicator will be protected in full by any applicable warranty.
If your car is an M-car requiring a 1,200 mile running in service, you should not exceed 2,000 miles. Please contact BMW on 0370 5050 160 if you are affected by this.
