I know this has been covered to various degrees, but would like specific advice please.
So my wife's i3 REx (2015) is on 28k miles is due a service. The car's engine did a fair bit of work coming up the road from Blackpool to Scotland last year when it was purchased. The engine has been used intermittently but usually is electric all the way since we fitted an electric charging point to the house.
The car was given a visual health check earlier this year before the 3 year warranty expired, so they sorted torn dust sleeves on the front shock absorbers (both sides) and replaced a fuel pressure switch.
Around the same time the car was given a brake fluid change. BMW charged £100 which I thought was okay, but it's a bit of a nonsense, when you actually think the fluid costs just £10.
So anyway, from what I can determine the service gets the air pollen filter changed, oil (2.5 litres), and oil filter. They say brake fluid too, so now it's done it should be good for 2 years. I've reviewed some online videos and it looks straight forward. I've serviced my own cars for years including my brother's X5 which is an absolute brut to work on. Only car I've had to use a small step ladder to access the air filter!
Because the car is now outside warranty, will I invalidate the battery warranty? I plan to purchase the OE parts from BMW and receipt them.
Only down side I can see is getting the service reminder cancelled or reset. I have VCDS for VAG cars to reset intervals, and I assume BMW do something similar. Would BMW reset it if I could prove it was done as part of software check? Judging by my main dealer's front reception, I reckon they are going to be funny buggers.
