We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2018 430i xDrive Gran Coupe’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 430i xDrive Gran Coupe may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2018 BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my BMW 430i xDrive Gran Coupe? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 430i xDrive Gran Coupe’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my BMW oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my BMW exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
