Not sure how or where to get your BMW 335is’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

BMW recommends changing your 2012 335is’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 335is in the above table. Outside of BMW-recommended oil change intervals, your 335is may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your BMW 335is. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2012 BMW 335is?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2012 BMW 335is motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. BMW has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2012 335is.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 335is by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2012 BMW 335is Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my BMW 335is motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to BMW 335is engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my BMW 335is 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my BMW 335is spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
