All maintenance requirements for the BMW X1 are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system. Sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including distance travelled, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven.

Based on this, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.

Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.

X1 sDrive18i: $44,500
