That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change BMW 430i xDrive oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be.

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 430i xDrive spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
