The Importance of Engine Oil

Engine oil keeps the most essential components lubricated, reducing friction in the engine so that it doesn't overheat and can continue to be reliable for whatever drive you have ahead. Oil also helps keep your engine clear of particles which the filter collects. An oil change includes flushing the system and changing the filter, making sure it will continue to drive how you want it to.

There are many signs that can tell you when you need an oil change - if the oil gets too dark, you notice strange smells, or if there are strange noises from the engine - making it easy to tell when you need to get to our Charleston service center.

How Often Does My BMW Need an Oil Change?

We've come a long way since vehicles needed to get an oil change every 3,000 miles. New synthetic engine oil can keep your car performing at a high standard for over 10,000 miles in some cases. That being said, a BMW is a high-performance vehicle and getting an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles will keep your BMW at peak performance for a longer time.
