Excellent news, Bimmer fans! BMW Malaysia has just announced that from June 2015 (that’s now), all new BMW models sold through official authorised channels in the country will come with a five-year unlimited mileage manufacturer warranty and a five-year/100,000 km free scheduled service package as standard. This includes all the BMW M models, as well as the i8 plug-in hybrid supercar!
The complimentary maintenance programme is in accordance to the on-board BMW Condition Based Service (CBS) status, and includes service vehicle checks, oil, air, fuel and micro filters, spark plugs and brake fluid. However, brake discs, pads and windscreen wipers (previously covered under BS+RI) have been excluded from the service programme.
Still, this is a huge upgrade over the two-year unlimited mileage warranty plus three-year/60,000 km BMW Service + Repair Inclusive (BS+RI) coverage offered previously.
This move elevates BMW Malaysia from having the shortest warranty coverage among premium brands in the country to become a clear class-leader is this aspect. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia offers a four-year unlimited mileage warranty, while Audi Malaysia gives a four-year/120,000 km coverage.
