BMW ConnectedDrive – BMW TeleService and Condition Based Service.

BMW TeleService transmits all the important information for a service appointment from your BMW to your BMW service partner. This makes servicing your BMW even faster, easier and more economical.
Condition Based Service (CBS) is an intelligent system that independently detects the service needs of your vehicle. Fixed service intervals now belong to the past because CBS analyses the actual service requirement and keeps you informed.
When required, the data are sent from your BMW either automatically or at the touch of a button to BMW service. Your service partner will then contact you to arrange an appointment. Exchanging data via BMW TeleService enables the actual service requirement to be ascertained before the appointment, allowing the workshop to order any spare parts required.
