BMW Inspections 1 and 2
Every vehicle is subject to wear and tear, causing parts to lose effectiveness and fail gradually. Routine maintenance keeps your vehicle at its best and helps prevent or detect potential problems. If you need maintenance, Catalpa Street Garage is trained to ensure your BMW adheres to its alternating factory schedule, known as Inspections 1 and 2. The first visit in the series is known as Inspection 1, and it typically occurs at 30,000, 90,000, and 150,000 miles, depending on your model and year. Our technicians will inspect your vehicle’s three main components during this session: the engine, undercarriage, and body/electrical system. They’ll also change your vehicle’s oil, replace your oil filter, replace brake fluid, check for leaks, top off fluids, and conduct other key maintenance items. Inspection 2 is similar to Inspection 1, but it includes a few additional services, such as checking for rust, replacing the battery (if needed), replacing spark plugs and air filters, and more. This typically occurs at 60,000 and 120,000 miles, but that also depends on your car’s year and model. Fortunately, BMW makes it easy to keep track of your maintenance with its BMW Maintenance System on your dashboard. All you need to do is bring the last-used key to our shop because it stores this critical information and lets our technicians know what’s needed. We can take care of the rest, so visit our shop and leave the maintenance to us.
