Concours success for BMW 7 Series

BMW's unique Concours service package has proved to be a resounding success with over 84 per cent of owners opting to take the package on purchase of the car.

Concours is an entirely new, five-year, 75,000 mile service and maintenance package for the new 7 Series. A one-off fee of £500 (a fraction of the retail cost) will cover service and maintenance by BMW technicians, including engine oil and filters, wiper blades, brake pads and discs, spark plugs, air filters, microfilter, brake fluid and coolant.

When the car is sold, Concours passes to the new owner, which will help to enhance residual values.
