I bought my 99 323 which used to be a company loaner.
I have 38k miles on it and the computer says I have 500 miles left till the service is due.
now, I know I need the oil change for sure, but since I don't have a service record, I don't know if I need inspection 2 or not. I did a search and some seem to have done their inspection 2 at 40k, and others at 60k.
Can anyone enlighten me on this?
Also, is it necessary to get inspection 2 done at a BMW dealer, instead of a local mechanic? the dealer(pacificBMW) claims only they have the equipment to reset the computer, which I wonder. I'd like to save some $$$ by bringing it to a non-dealer if possible. does anyone have any experience with this?
