Relax. You’re in good hands.

TeleService.

Nobody knows better than your BMW if maintenance is required. With TeleService*, your vehicle does all the work. TeleService uses your vehicle’s on-board maintenance monitoring system (known as Conditioned Based Service) to discretely communicate to your retailer when maintenance is needed or issues arise with your vehicle. Your home or selling retailer will receive a vehicle diagnosis message and will contact you to arrange a service appointment at your convenience. BMW TeleService also offers you the option to activate the system and prompt your retailer to call you to book a vehicle Spa or other regular maintenance appointments. Wherever you’re travelling, TeleService is always by your side, leaving your mind free to concentrate on the essentials: The Ultimate Driving Experience.

What is an Automatic TeleService Call?

Business trips, birthdays, dinner appointments – you have enough events to remember, which is why it's great that your vehicle knows when its next maintenance appointment is due.
Your BMW automatically transmits service-relevant data to your BMW Service Retailer prior to your forthcoming maintenance appointment, e.g. for an oil change. Your Service Retailer is then able to call you to arrange an appointment. Fixed maintenance appointments become a thing of the past and your BMW will not have to spend any more time than absolutely necessary in the workshop.

How does an Automatic TeleService Call work?

Condition Based Service (CBS) sensors identify that a service is needed either for a vehicle fluid change (e.g. engine oil) or a wear-and-tear part replacement (e.g. brake pad). The vehicle then uses an Automatic TeleService Call to transmit service-relevant data to your BMW Service Retailer and a specialist will call you to make an appointment. Due to the accuracy of the data transmitted, the service team can obtain all of the necessary components for your vehicle in advance, which significantly reduces the duration of your appointment.
