The service intervals for your specific BMW will depend largely on the car's age. BMW's that are older than 1995 have a mileage/age based service interval that should be observed, these are typically based on a 12,000 mile server or 1 year service cycle, whichever is sooner.
BMW's manufactured after approximately 1995 feature an electronic service interval display to advise when a service is required. This display takes the form of an illuminated bar graph. As the bars count down, the closer the vehicle is to requiring a service. These displays are typically mileage based with some of the higher performance cars taking into account the use of the vehicle.
Newer model BMW's including all 1 series, X series, 3, 5 and 7 series from 2000 (including M series) include a service management system and will advise when a service is due. This will either be displayed on the dash board display or one of the LCD dsplay screens where fitted.
Typically all new BMW's require a service somewhere between 18,000 and 22,000 miles. However the service management computer will take into account the driving style and environmental conditions and vary the service interval accordingly.
