2014 118d 15k Service

Post by shabbaranks » 02 Jan 2018, 18:01

Hi guys,

Looking to service the misses's 1 Series for the first time and one of my mates said on some beemers you need to use the ECU reader type gadget (that wasn't exactly what he said but basically its not as easy as just dropping the oil and re-filling). Is this the case for the 1 series or is it just a simple swap?

Also as I'll be looking to do the brakes\pads I think I'm right in saying you need the ECU type gadget to do this as well - is this correct? Sorry about the lack of technical description if anyone can correct me that would be appreciated also.

Thanks :)

Both can be reset using the buttons on the stalks - YouTube has many 'how tos'.......

15K first service should be carried out by the dealer as it is not just for oil - any warranty will be null and void if you don't and lack of official service history will affect future value.

Thanks, but the warranty runs out in February going forward I intend on keeping all paperwork to demonstrate what was serviced and what parts were used during the service. Personally I feel the car is cared for better knowing full well what parts are going in rather than what corners Ocean BMW can cut and save money.
