330d Oil Service

Today I performed an oil service on the 330d, and wanted to document it here for future reference.

As the car does around 5,000 miles per annum I change the oil and filter annually. The car’s service counter allows 17,000 miles or something bonkers between oil changes, but I’m acutely aware of the importance of clean oil, especially in engines where the turbo shares the oil system.

These interim services aren’t noted in the car’s official service book, but I document them here for peace of mind.

Mileage: 159,246 (4,679 miles since last oil change)
Date: 23rd December 2019 (last service 7th January 2019)
Parts cost: £35.38! (had a couple of litres of 5W40 in stock)
