Condition Based Servicing (CBS).
Newer BMW models feature Condition Based Servicing (CBS). This system actively monitors various service components for wear, ensuring that your BMW only requests attention when it needs it.
When your BMW does require servicing a coresponding CBS icon will display on your dashboard. Via Idrive it is possible for driver to check what serviceable items are due to be replaced. On addition during each service KMK technicians scan whole CBS system to precisely check what due dates other serviceable items have – if any of those have very close due date, client is notified and upon agrement additional service itmes replaced.
