BMW Extends Free Servicing and Maintenance Package On 3 and 5 Series Diesel Models

Free servicing and maintenance for current 3 and 5 Series diesel models has been extended for the foreseeable future. Originally available on new models purchased before 30 June 2003, the package applies to all new 3 Series diesels for five years or 60,000 miles and current (E39) 5 Series diesel models for three years or 60,000 miles. It includes:

As well as freedom from normal service and maintenance bills, the package also contributes to BMW’s traditionally strong residual values, as it is fully transferable to subsequent owners.

BMW Great Britain’s General Manager, Corporate Sales, Bernard Bradley said: "The introduction of the service and maintenance package in January stimulated awareness and strong sales of 3 and 5 Series diesel models. The continuation of the package ensures that outstanding performance is matched with the lowest possible running costs."

BMW Great Britain has pioneered service and maintenance packages in recent years. The new MINI was introduced in July 2001 with tlc, a five year / 50,000 mile service pack priced at only £100.00. Following that, the BMW 7 Series was launched in March 2002 with Concours, the five year / 75,000 mile service and maintenance option. Additionally, the recently released information on the forthcoming (E60) 5 Series confirmed details of Service and Maintenance Inclusive (SMI), the new Europe-wide five year / 60,000 mile offer.
