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.
We advise a gearbox service every 38,000 miles no matter the age of your vehicle. Gearbox oil is a lubricant found is the transmission system to reduce wear and tear of the system. In short is keeps your gearbox working as it should!
When the Gearbox oil is old and dirty it will affect the performance of your car dramatically and any damage caused can lead to other components failing. The car will start running very sluggish and you will experience very slow gear shifting because of the grit and dirt sitting in the oil. Maintaining your DSG servicing is just as important as your basic servicing requirements and the same principle applies; keep your servicing history complete and the value of your vehicle will be far greater and easier to sell on.
We advise a differential oil change every 38,000 miles.
Why is it important that I have it changed when recommended? Changing this oil is just as important as changing your engine’s oil, and for the same reason. Metal-to-metal contact wears down surfaces and creates heat from friction, which inevitably weakens the gears and leads to failure.
Whether you have Front and Rear differential depends on if your vehicle is AWD OR FWD.
