Servicing offer - connected drive - Black Friday/30% off potentially

30% off service packs on the connected drive website - Black Friday? My car is 2 years old (or within a few days of this) and has a 3 year service pack.

I've been able to extend this to a 5 year 60,000 mile service pack for £8.68!

Worth logging in to connected drive to see what comes up. Option also to go to 7 year 74,000 mile service but that was £838.

Service scope is:

With BMW Service Inclusive, you are eligible for the following services during the agreed term and mileage combination**:

Service engine oil incl. refills (oil, wiper fluid)
Service vehicle check according to BMW specifications
Service micro filters
Service fuel filters (only for diesel engines)
Service air filters
Service spark plugs (only for petrol engines)
Service brake fluid

You are also eligible for the included services regardless of how often your vehicle needs servicing during the respective term and mileage. You are always eligible for services if the smart maintenance system, Condition Based Service (CBS), displays the need for servicing on your BMW display. When you reach the specified mileage or term*, you are no longer eligible for services included in Service Inclusive.

You can find more information on the T&Cs for BMW Service Inclusive in the ConnectedDrive Store as well as legal notices regarding data protection HERE

* Whichever is reached first; the term (in months) and mileage (in km and miles) of BMW Service Inclusive begin on your BMW's registration date and must have been purchased by the first service appointment so that the respective services are covered.

I've just purchased this too. It said valid for my car, so i took it.

My car has done 32k miles and is just over 3 years old. Reading the bumf about extending the service inclusive (mines just expired), it reads as you can do this within 15 months.

The connected portal had updated and says my service included runs until nov 2022 or 60k miles.

I expect bmw will claim its a mistake, so i printed all of the details saying that its valid for my car/my vin.


Hmm, let's see...

Yes. It's got to be a typo. However, all my records have been correctly updated.

So much for our debate on the emac pack 😂 Although I might well get both - currently onboard computer reports 2 yearly, 18,000 mile oil change - that doesn't sounds great. So I might get the emac pack to cover every other year.

Have you received an activation email though? I've only had confirmation, but no activation..

Not all i8 owners had this. Some had £800+ for 5 year service packs.

Maybe they see it as a way to tie owners in to them for the other pricey stuff (belts etc).

Look here ... account required.

https://www.bmw-connecteddrive.com/c...selection.html
(select region - login - store)

An on-line offer is only available for 2019/2020 cars in some countries though. UK seems to be lucky!

For my 69 plate roadster, the offer is £721.48 for 60 months. These offers are all over the place...

VERY IMPORTANT:

Package validity:
The Service Inclusive validity period (duration and mileage) begins with the date of *****the first registration of the vehicle***** and ends with the expiry date or mileage, whichever comes first.

Mine was a 2 year option to extend. As id taken the original, plus not had it serviced since the original expired in October, žt has extended ok. In the long pdf, there's the wording as you say re Service Included, then there's a section about 'extended'.

For £8, i've nothing to lose. However, my payment has been accepted and my car now shows Nov 2022

Its really odd. I'd got two offers, the same prices as Molarbear. 74 months was over £800. The other offer was 2 years to 60k mls, £8.68.

This is the wording of the 'extension':

SI extension:

Service Inclusive Extension is not eligible for vehicles registered to private individuals between 2017 and 2019 in the UK except the following models i3, i8 and 7 Series.

Offer subject to availability.
