How Often to Get 2015 BMW 228i xDrive Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your BMW 228i xDrive’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2015 228i xDrive’s oil should be changed according to BMW’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 228i xDrive may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by BMW if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 228i xDrive. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My BMW 228i xDrive?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your BMW 228i xDrive. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2015 BMW 228i xDrive vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 228i xDrive’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2015 BMW 228i xDrive Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my BMW 228i xDrive engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to BMW 228i xDrive engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 228i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 228i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
