Bavarian Rennsport offers the most affordable BMW oil changes in Jacksonville. The BMW Intermediate Oil Service is the first regular service you’ll have to perform on your BMW and the one that you will have done most frequently. An oil change for BMW vehicles requires a specific kind of oil and needs to be performed regularly, though not as often as other makes.
What is included in the BMW Oil Change Service?
Intermediate Oil Service is simply an oil change and oil filter replacement for your BMW.
How often should I schedule BMW Oil Change Service?
You should schedule an oil change for BMW vehicles every 7,500 miles, or rely on your Service Indicator Lights or Service Interval System to tell you when you’re due at the shop.
Why is this important?
While the BMW Oil and Safety Service is only required every 15,000 miles on BMW model years 1999 through 2013 and every 10,000 miles on 2014 and newer vehicles, an intermediate oil change is recommended between the scheduled service intervals to help keep your Bimmer running to the best of its ability, giving your BMW increased longevity. By keeping attentive service records to show how much you’ve cared for your Bimmer, you’ll also maintain higher resale value.
What should I ask about when scheduling a BMW Oil Change Service? When you schedule or perform an oil change, BMW specific motor oil or a BMW recommended oil must be used. Different year models have different needs, so make sure that your technician has the correct oil available, and verify that your shop or technician will be using one of the recommended synthetic oils in your vehicle. Bimmer Shops offers a list of recommended brands for synthetic oil for BMW vehicles for your convenience.
More About LIQUI MOLY
The heart of your car is its motor, and motor oil is its blood. Not all oil is the same. As the performance in motors continues to develop, the need for high-quality oil products is also on the rise. Nowadays, the oil had to do a lot more for your motor than just lubricate and cool. It also has to work when it is at very high pressures and temperatures. The oil also has to clean the motor of fuel particles, acids, abrasions, combustion residues, and water. The oil also has to protect the motor from corrosion and guarantee nothing will be able to get in. Modern motor oils, like LIQUI MOLY, are high-tech products designed for certain car models – basically, they are tailor made for your car. That’s why car manufacturers only give their approval to selected oils, and why we selected LIQUI MOLY as our exclusive product for oil change service.
LIQUI MOLY offers the matching motor oil for your BMW. Their motor oils have a variety of approvals by German and overseas car manufacturers, and exceeds the requirements of BMW. LIQUI MOLY actually has a higher cleaning performance than what is required by BMW.
BMW Tire And Balance Services
Why buy tires online, when you can buy tires local?!? Bavarian Rennsport now offers Tires and Wheels. We’ll even match the prices found on TireRack.com
Trust Bavarian Rennsport for total BMW care, including Tire Changing and Tire Balancing Services. Whether you need new tires or need to repair a flat tire, you will love our affordable prices and quick turn-around times.
To insure the best quality of driving and optimal performance we use the Hunter Engineering’s Tire Changer and ROAD FORCE® ELITE DIAGNOSTIC WHEEL BALANCER. The Road Force® Elite diagnostic wheel balancer delivers exceptional balancing service and performs a Road Force® and balance faster than a traditional wheel balance. The Road Force® Elite solves wheel vibration problems that traditional wheel balancers can’t fix. This diagnostic wheel balancer machine detects non-balance, radial-force related problems associated with tire uniformity, tire and rim runout, wheel to balancer mounting errors and improper bead seat of tire to rim. Hunter Engineering is the only equipment trusted by BMW, and most other luxury car manufactures.
The graphic below highlights our current tire specials. If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, you can contact us at (904) 270-9390.
What is Road Force Balancing?
Advancements in automotive technology have made achieving an optimum ride more complex.
The demand for more responsive equipment has led to tighter suspension and lower profile tires. These features make vehicles more sensitive to vibration forces. Standard balancing often proves effective in addressing ride vibration problems. However, there are certain non-balance related factors that standard balancing doesn’t address.
Tire and wheel manufacturing is very precise, but some inconsistencies in weight, stiffness, and balance are inevitable. Called lateral or radial runout, these inconsistencies are low or high points in the tire and wheel construction.
Some tires may have a spot that is stiffer than the rest of the tire. This condition is called force variation. Runout and force variation can cause noticeable ride vibrations. If standard balancing isn’t providing the smooth ride you want for your vehicle, it is possible that runout or force variation are the real culprits. Match mounting and road force balancing can be used to counteract these issues.
Force Match Balancing vs. Road Force Balancing Tires
At one time, the common solution to issues like lateral or radial runout and force variation was match balancing. Tire technicians would mount a tire and wheel assembly together and align a marked point on the tire with the valve stem on the wheel. This supposedly aligned the high spot in the tire with the low spot in the wheel. However, this process is largely ineffective.
The valve stem is no longer guaranteed to be the low point of runout in the wheel. Wheels have become more complex and more ornate, making the valve stem placement cosmetic rather than strategic. Although force match balancing can still produce results, the most reliable process for eliminating these non-balance based vibrations is road force balancing.
Road force balancing sometimes called ride-matching is the most effective way to diagnose and resolve runout or force variation vibrations. A road force tire balancer, a state-of-the-art balancing machine, uses a load-roller to simulate the force of the road, and thereby ascertain the combined uniformity of a tire and wheel package.
Hunter ROAD FORCE® ELITE DIAGNOSTIC WHEEL BALANCER measures the force variation and run out of the whole tire and wheel assembly. They also measure and distinguish between the radial and lateral runout of the wheel and tire individually, providing a more accurate account of the variant forces at work in the assembly. This information is then used to determine what steps to take to compensate for any tire and wheel inconsistencies. This may mean simply adding weights or even remounting the tire and wheel to minimize the overall runout.
A variety of factors might cause ride vibrations. Standard balancing, match mounting, and road-force balancing only address a few of the possible causes of ride discomfort. Road force balancing may only be recommended if standard balancing proves ineffective in diagnosing the issue. If both standard balancing and road force balancing does not address the issue, it is possible that the vibration source is not the tire and wheel assemblies.

BMW Pre-purchase Inspection
The second biggest investment you will make in your life will usually be your car. It seems like a no brainer to spend a few hours and a few hundred dollars to ensure that the vehicle you are buying is a good investment. Unfortunately, many car owners bring vehicles to us that they just purchased, only to find there were a lot more problems than the seller led them to believe.
Most private sellers know very little about the car they are trying to sell, if you want a good deal, you are going to have to know more than them about the vehicle you are buying. The same rule applies to independent car dealers – who very often try not to know if the car has any issues. They hope their lack of knowledge will somehow keep them from being obligated to doing something when the buyer has issues in the weeks or months following your purchase.
Find Out Why The Car’s for Sale
You should always ask why the vehicle is for sale and who is selling it. There are some obvious examples of the wrong car in the wrong place – why is a Honda dealer selling a BMW was it taken in on a trade in? Who trades a BMW for a Honda? Only a specialist would know if there was an issue with a BMW. Of course, there could be a valid reason for this, but it is not a bad idea to ask a lot of questions. Only European car specialists can properly diagnose and fix European cars.
With the internet at your fingertips, there are solid cars and real investment opportunities out there – our pre-purchase inspection is designed to help you make sure you make the right investment and are aware of any issues you may face down the road.
Our FREE Inspection includes a visual inspection of brakes, suspension, tires, and fluids, a visual inspection of engine bay for oil and coolant leaks, and fault code scan.
If your vehicle has a known issue, a diagnostic is required. Please be advised that in the event of any unexpected wait time other clients’ vehicles may take longer than expected to diagnose and treat so unfortunate delays do occur. We will get to your vehicle as soon as possible.

Had a great first experience at Bavarian Rennsport – they performed a pre-purchase inspection on my vehicle and all the items found were clearly documented and explained to me. The web system used for reviewing pending work and paying is really cool and I found it to be really easy to use.
Bavarian Rennsport is like no other shop I have been to. The Techs are very knowledgeable and communicate very well to explain what is needed and not needed right away. Basically there is no other shop I would take my BMW to. The whole experience is great.
My whole experience with Bavarian Rennsport was AWESOME ! The Noelle tune is unreal. The power and responsiveness is amazing. The techs here know why they are doing. They picked my car up and had it back to me in 2 days. I live 4 hours away. Great job. Very satisfied.
Outstanding service and care from everyone involved. The repair job on the BMW was excellent and efficiently on time. As a retired senior Air Force Officer not only they offered military discount but were grateful for our service to the Nation. Well done. We will be back!

The reality is that while BMWs can be a joy to own and drive, they can also be more than a little scary to maintain. The team at Bavarian Rennsport has been great at taking that anxiety away. They have always been honest, forthright, and willing to take time to discuss options and the details of the diagnosis. They have also taken time to discuss all sorts of additional questions related to upgrades, and even helping me decide whether to keep the car or move on to something else. Shawn in particular has spent extensive time on the phone discussing options and the virtues of one car over another. Chaz and Jeremy are also two individuals I’ve worked with extensively, and they’ve constantly been knowledgable and patient. Great shop and great team.
i drove from Atlanta to Jacksonville to buy a Ferrari F430, i wanted a pre purchase inspection done , since it was a Sunday no shop was opened, i goggled Ferrari repair shops and Bavarian popped up, called and left them a message , Sunday night. I got a call from Chad the next morning, they were able to accommodate me on short notice, excellent customer service, they checked out the Ferrari on my behalf, and emailed me a copy of the report. They did a great job. will definitely do business with them again.
Every experience I’ve had with Bavarian Rennsport has been outstanding. Customer service is second to none. I have nothing but good things to say about their shop, their staff, and their service. I would recommend them to anyone.
I am the proud owner of a 2004 BMW Z-4, 3.0i with only 42K miles.My nightmare started when the transmission died and had the car taken to Bavarian Rennsport. After a new transmission from BMW we thought that all is well and on our way, two weeks later car died transmission light on, car will not move, burned out module,which was replaced,the car only went a short distance shuts down again. Sent car to BMW diagnostic they said burned out dash board need replaced at a cost of thousands. Shawn the owner said that cant be, and he will find the cause, they spent thousand of their dollars to figure out what was the cause.A burned out door sensor that told the transmission the doors are open and the car should go into park mode, if you keep driving you rip up the transmission.NO ONE COULD FIND THIS CAUSE THEY DID. What was my cost I paid for the module, they absorbed the rest. What a stand up company, no other place to take your BMW.
Since I relocated to Jax, the Bavarian Renns sport team take great care of my 2001 Porsche….They are very honest, knowledgeable, professional and top qualified technicians. Highly recommended!! Thanks, Ric
