Burch Motor Works carries out the servicing of your BMW according the manufactures service schedule. We use Fuchs lubricants BMW Approved LL – Longlife Engine oils & quality parts. Later 2014 engine models now use various grade oils, 5w30 LL-04, Ow30 LL-12+, 0w20 LL-17+. We keep all grades in stock to ensure the correct grade long life oil is used in your vehicle.

Please be aware of this when comparing prices – low quality oils can cause problems in the long run. Not only this, but we use FORTE engine flush with the service. Added into the engine and run for 5 minutes with the old engine oil, this cleans engines internally removing lacquer, varnish and sludge deposits and provide anti-wear protection.



A BMW service can require some extra special attention from a qualified mechanics. When your BMW flashes up with ‘SERVICE’ on the dashboard – it could mean a few different things!

Pre BMW 2004 models

Most Pre 2004 models use a four service cycle which include – Engine oil Service, Inspection 1 Service, Engine Oil Service, and Inspection 2 (Full) Service – Then the cycle starts again.

Post BMW 2004 models

Post 2004 models now feature Condition Based Service (CBS), which is an adaptation of BMW’s Service Interval Indicator. Sensors are applied to certain parts of your BMW, which can then decipher wear and determine whether BMW servicing is necessary. This data is then stored internally on a microchip in your remote control key. Here at Burch Motor Works we have the knowledge and experience to perform a full vehicle service to BMW standards, keeping in compliance with your current warranty.

The SERVICE indicator will be letting you know the car requires;
  • MOT Test Due
  • Engine Oil & Pollen filter Service (plus possible extra items)
  • Brake Fluid Change
  • Vehicle Check
  • Front Brake Replacement
  • Rear Brake Replacement
  • Diesel Particulate filter or Additive Replacement


We do not believe in the word ‘fixed price’ serving as this can be quite misleading.

We create service estimates according to which is due by BMW. This is usually by the mileage or age of the vehicle – which ever comes first.
Burch Motor Works has access to all BMW service schedules to guarantee the correct service is being carried out to the manufacturers specifications.

With this in mind – Burch Motor Works recommend a quick visit for us to inspect the vehicle service light & service book to make sure the correct service is being carried out.


We only use BMW approved oil.

This garage is truly outstanding. My vehicle broke down at the weekend. I contacted the garage and as always, they were very helpful. They completed the works within a couple of days, although we didn't have the vehicle booked in previously as the vehicle broke down. Once again thanks for the amazing service.

John and the team were extremely helpful and informative, from initial contact through to chatting to me after the work was done. By far the most professional yet friendly place I've ever taken a car and will definitely be back for all future work.

Very pleased with service from Burch Motors for replacing front brake pads and sensors plus MOT, on BMW520. Highly recommend Burch Motors for anyone wanting to keep their car in good condition without paying the higher prices charged by main dealers.
