How Much is an Oil Change for a BMW?

Adding oil to engine


How much is an oil change for a BMW? While your average economy car might get oil change services for around $50, the BMW oil change cost can go well over $100. Why is that? BMW vehicles represent the highest tier of modern automotive engineering, and keeping these cars in top shape requires both the expertise of your certified technician and the proper technology from your service center. However, we think the cost of maintenance is well worth it for the impeccable performance that the BMW lineup delivers.

Why are Oil Changes Important?

Your engine is an intricate piece of machinery, composed of many moving parts. Motor oil helps those parts move smoothly, reducing friction and removing heat as your car runs. However, your motor oil also breaks down over time and picks up debris during those Portland commutes. If you fail to do the proper maintenance, your motor oil will thicken and fail to flow properly throughout the engine. The result is decreased performance and efficiency, as well as the potential for major damage.

How Often Do I Need a BMW Oil Change?

  • The old rule of thumb was to change your oil every 3,000 miles or every 3 months around Tigard. However, with modern advancements in technology, most schedule a BMW oil change every 5,000 miles with great results.
  • Your dashboard will illuminate an oil change light when it’s time to schedule your service. This glowing symbol will resemble an oil can.
  • Not sure when you need maintenance for your make and model? Check your owner’s manual to find out the optimal interval to maximize your performance.

Can I Change My Oil Myself?

You can perform your own BMW oil change, but the process can be time consuming and messy. The basic instructions are:

  1. Buy the proper oil for your car.
  2. Prepare your tools and workspace.
  3. Drain all the old oil from your vehicle.
  4. Tighten the drain plug.
  5. Replace the oil filter.
  6. Add fresh oil.
  7. Check the oil level.
