How to know if your car needs a service

Since 2003, BMW have used there ‘I Drive ‘ system which enables the driver to check the vehicles service status along with braking components service life. This gives notice to the driver which service is required whether it be over a mileage or time basis. The vehicles key also stores the service data of the vehicle.

Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda vehicles have been equipped with a display in the instrument cluster to display the service required. This is either displayed as OIL, denoting a intermediate service is due or by INSP which denotes a major service is due. As BMW has its ‘ I Drive ‘ system, AUDI has a system called MMI which provides vehicle service system information on mileage and time to services due. Since 1997 Porsche has also used digital service indicators in the instrument cluster, similar to that of VW, reading either oil service or inspection service.
