I would have them tell you which MTF-LT oil they used. Only MTF-LT-5 is suppose to be used in the 1M. Most dealers only have LT-2 or LT-3 on hand since that is what is used on the M3. Check the first page of this FAQ for LT5 part numbers. You could also call that dealer's parts dept and give them the part number they billed out and see what fluid they say it is.

LT-2 was definitely used in my transmission. Dealer insists that this is correct.
Gave them a copy of SI B00 01 10 dated May 2011 and they are "looking" into it.
When I get them to replace with the proper LT-5 fluid. Should this be subsequently done again, to ensure all of the "bad" fluid is gone?

I personally think that would be over kill. But some guys did go thru that when the 1M's came in for their first service. Why does your dealer keep fighting you? I would just go to another dealer, have the fluid changed to the correct MTF-LT-5 and send them the bill. But that's me. Maybe take their temperature and see what they say.

Did your dealer use the SAF-XJ+FM gear fluid in the diff ? That's the correct fluid as well.

Good Luck,
Dackel

Local dealer just advised that they are willing replace transmission oil to the LT-5 at no cost. But only because I am insisting.

Do you mean engine oil? Last posts were about the transmission oil.

OW30 is among the right oils for the 1M. I choose to use 0W40 for mine, which is also among the approved grades.

Anyone know how much coolant is required for a coolant change... Coolant system holds 10.4 litres??

Is the BMW coolant pre-mixed or requires dilution 50/50 with distilled water?

My specs match yours and show the cooling system holds 10.4 litre of coolant. 5.2 litre of BMW coolant would be required if the system is totally drained. BMW coolant needs to be diluted 50/50.

I m doing less than 3000 miles per year since I got the car, what kind of interval should I do for each fluid on a time basis?

I'm pretty sure my dealer originally installed +FM (Will confirm in the morning when they open) rear diff oil during 2000km service. But at 32,000 km, they switched to non-FM. Should I be worried? I read you shouldn't swap back once you start using +FM, but I can't find out why.

I would be worried. BMW doesn't put out these guide lines for no reason. While I do not know why they say once you use +FM you should never go back to non +FM. There has to be a logical reason - knowing how the Germans think. I just do not know why.


@discoboy1 I would be changing your engine oil at least once a year. IF you store your car over the winter maybe change your engine oil before and after the "winter sleep". The reason is the oil will become more acidic as it ages. Also unburnt fuel from stop/starts will buildup in the engine oil. There is that old saying... 20/20... start the engine for less than 20 seconds or run it up to temp for 20 minutes(with a short drive).

As for the gearbox and diff fluids... I would think changing those once every three years would be ok. ?

Spoke with the dealership and they knew what they were doing --- Apparently they were about to install the +FM fluid, same as when I had the break in service done, but the shop foreman highlighted the fact there's a new service bulletin out that 1M's (and I assume e9x M3s) get the non FM stuff. INTERESTING. I hope they aren't just blowing smoke up my .... But at least I've made them aware. If I have LSD issues, it's on them! (I even highlighted the concern about switching back from FM, but apparently it isn't a huge deal)

Humm... I think I would like to see that in writing before believing them. Remember when the 1M came out and all these "know it all" dealers said the 1M doesn't use anything special(MTF-LT5 vs LT3 that was used in the M3's)... well.. they were all wrong. This is the first I have heard of BMW saying you can switch back to SAF-XJ after using SAF-XJ +FM oil in the diff.

I think if it were MY CAR I would put the +FM back in the diff. But that's just me.

Might want to send an email to tech writer (Mike) at Roundel; I seem to remember him being pretty emphatic about not switching back...

Kept yesterday my car from dealer after servicing and left it there again today after having realized that they put Castrol TWS 10W60 motor oil instead of 5W30 or 0W40
Now I'm going to keeping it again and hope

Yup, you should put +FM back in the diff. There IS a reason why BMW says never to switch back once you start to use +FM in a diff.


@dEvo6 Sorry to hear they used the wrong oil. Just look at the guys who bought the new M3/M4... they are going thru these "hassles" too. I don't understand why BMW does not properly train their dealer network.

Ask them to produce a copy of the TSB. I bet they won't. And yes... they were blowing smoke up your...

I'm coming up to my 10,000 mile (16,000 km) service according to my cars dash. What's part of this service and what should I look out for?

I will be taking the car in for this service Aug 16 so just want to be prepared. Couldn't find much with the forum search on this second service.

Ok just dropped by the dealership to inquire about my second service. The rep at the service desk told me it's not going to be anything heavy. He printed out a copy of what the service will consist of. Does this look accurate to you guys?

That actually seems like a pretty extensive service for 10k miles:

Engine oil
Manual transmission
Diff

All my dealer did at my 2nd service was oil, engine air filter and a set of wipers...
