2020 BMW 4 Series Maintenance Schedule


A BMW 4 Series is an excellent choice for cruising around Annapolis, Highland Beach, and Hillsmere Shores, MD, in style. To keep it looking great and performing for years to come, it’s important to keep up with routine maintenance.

At BMW of Annapolis, we want to help keep your car in top shape for as long as possible. That’s why we put together this 2020 BMW 4 Series maintenance schedule to let you know what when to stop in for service.

Keep reading through our detailed guide, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

BMW Oil Change

BMW Maintenance System

The 2020 BMW 4 Series is designed to notify you when maintenance work is needed. It does this through the BMW Maintenance System, which shows the status for things like engine oil, front and rear brake pads, and brake fluid.

On the car’s iDrive display screen, various symbols will appear for maintenance:

  • OK: No service is currently needed.
  • Single triangle: The deadline for service is quickly approaching.
  • Double triangle: The deadline for service has already passed.

If either triangle appears on the screen, you’ll want to schedule maintenance as soon as possible.

Routine Service Intervals

While the 2020 4 Series can tell you when maintenance is needed, you may be curious to know what work gets completed at which mileage interval.

Below, we’ll cover the sort of work that our technicians will perform at any given number of miles.

Every 1,200 Miles

If you have the BMW M4 sports car, you’ll want to have the vehicle checked out every 1,200 miles.

During these visits, several tasks will be completed, including:

  • Change engine oil and oil filter
  • Change rear axle differential oil
  • Bleed intercooler reservoir

Every 10,000 Miles

If you have the standard 4 Series, your first maintenance check will be at the 10,000-mile mark. It’s at this point that the following work will be completed (in addition to changing the engine oil and filter):

  • Verify check control messages
  • Check indicator and warning lights
  • Inspect tires, adjust tire pressure, and reset Tire Pressure Monitor
  • Check parking brake functionality while the vehicle is being driven into the workshop
  • Check sunroof guide rails for excessive contamination
  • Charge the high-voltage battery
  • Check and record the charge setting in the central display

Every 20,000 & 30,000 Miles

When your BMW 4 Series has reached 20,000 miles on the odometer, it’ll need the above work, plus the following:

  • Replace ventilation microfilter
  • Replace battery in remote control keys

Have you reached the 30,000-mile mark? You’ll need to replace the air filter element and spark plugs if you’re driving the 2020 BMW M4.

Every 60,000 Miles

If you have the regular 4 Series, this is when you’ll replace the spark plugs. Additionally, you’ll add on the following tasks:

  • Replace brake pads, and clean brake pad contact points in calipers
  • Check surface and thickness of the front and rear brake discs, then replace, as necessary
  • Replace the brake fluid
  • Check operation of horn, headlight flasher, and hazard warning flashers
  • Check instrument and control lighting and heater/air-conditioning blower
  • Visually inspect all SRS airbag units for torn covers, obvious damage, or attachment of stickers

There are more items that will be covered during this time, which your service technician can go over for you.

150,000-Mile Maintenance

If your BMW is still running well after 150,000 miles, then congrats! You’ve done an excellent job at keeping up with the necessary routine services.

At this point, the only extra task that needs to be done is to inspect and replace the oxygen sensor, if needed.
