Bavarian Rennsport offers the most affordable Volkswagen oil changes in Jacksonville. An oil change for Volkswagen 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 Volkswagen Oil Change Service?
Intermediate Oil Service is simply an oil change and oil filter replacement for your Volkswagen.
How often should I schedule Volkswagen Oil Change Service?
You should schedule an oil change for Volkswagen vehicles every 3K-5K 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?
An intermediate oil change is recommended between the scheduled service intervals to help keep your vehicle running to the best of its ability, giving your Volkswagen increased longevity. By keeping attentive service records to show how much you’ve cared for your vehicle, you’ll also maintain higher resale value.
What should I ask about when scheduling a Volkswagen Oil Change Service?
When you plan to schedule or perform an oil change for your vehicle, Volkswagen specific motor oil or a Volkswagen recommended oil must be used – such as LIQUI MOLY. Different year models have different needs, so make sure that your technician or service shop has the correct oil available whether it be a gas or diesel engine, and verify that your shop or technician will be using one of the recommended synthetic oils in your vehicle. -redundant?
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 on the rise. Nowadays, the oil has to do a lot more for your motor than just lubricate and cool; it has to work when it is at very high pressures and temperatures, it has to clean the motor of fuel particles, acids, abrasions, combustion residues, and water, as well as 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 services.
LIQUI MOLY offers the matching motor oil for your Volkswagen . Their motor oils have a variety of approvals by German and overseas car manufacturers and exceed the requirements. LIQUI MOLY actually has a higher cleaning performance than what is required by Volkswagen factory specifications.

To ensure 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 cannot fix. This diagnostic wheel balancer machine detects non-balance, radial-force related problems associated with tire uniformity, tire and rim runout, wheel balancer mounting errors and improper bead seat of the tire to the rim. Hunter Engineering is the only equipment trusted by Volkswagen and most other luxury car manufacturers.

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 a 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 matched 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. The Hunter Road Force® Elite diagnostic wheel 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.
The machine also measures the force variation and run out of the whole tire and wheel assembly, as well as measures and distinguishes 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.
Is your check engine light on!? Let us diagnose the problem by booking your Volkswagen Diagnostic appointment today!
With the complexity and computer integration of today’s vehicles, it often takes a highly skilled and certified technician with advanced level tools to get to the root cause of the problem. Our Volkswagen diagnostic testing service takes the guesswork out of repairing your vehicle.
This service includes:
Visual Inspection of related components
Research of Technical Service Bulletins
This diagnostic service should be performed when you are experiencing drivability issues, reduced fuel economy, Drivetrain malfunction warnings, or the typical “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light illuminated/or flashing. When your “Check Engine” light comes on, a fault code can be stored in one or more of your vehicle’s computers. As soon as any type of service or warning light appears on the dash you should start looking for a solution such as the Bavarian RennSport Diagnostic Service. There are certain conditions that have to be met for a trouble code to stay in your vehicle system, and it is vital that the technician who is diagnosing your car checks all of them before he/she makes a repair decision which is why we scan the car when it first comes into our shop and then address the client’s concerns.The fault codes are always the “tip of the iceberg” taking you to “an area” inside the vehicles computers for further testing to properly determine where the real fault is. The diagnostic fee of $99.97/per hour allows us the time to thoroughly test and accurately determine the real cause of the warning light using the professional test equipment we have invested in. As stated on the intake form and verbally explained to the client we always try to diagnose the vehicle in one hour but in more intense situations it can start at three diagnostic hours. As a certified Independent Volkswagen service and repair center, our engine diagnostic services help us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your vehicle’s problem and sequentially a repair that is done correctly by the Factory Standards the first time.
* We only accept diagnostic reports from a Certified Volkswagen dealership or facility.*
* Bavarian Rennsport can not perform repairs on a vehicle without diagnosing it first.*

Bavarian RennSport offers a Free 1 hour Inspection that covers a visual inspection of the vehicle components such as the tire tread, the brake pad and rotor thickness, engine bay for leaks, and a system analysis offering an informational service on your vehicle. We connect to your vehicle and retrieve the codes that are triggering your light to illuminate as well as give you a detailed printout of the fault codes. Once we have a better understanding, our experienced service writers will recommend the appropriate diagnostic time. This service should be performed when you have a check engine light illuminated and are looking to receive preliminary information before committing to further work.
Volkswagen 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.
Bavarian Rennsport offers a complete 360 point Bumper to Bumper Pre Purchase Inspection that is designed to help you make the right investment, and be aware of any issues you may face down the road by purchasing this vehicle. This Process has Multiple steps throughout the 3-hour process ranging from the Vehicle’s details, Reason for today’s Visit, Initial Vehicle Scan, Maintenance, Drive, Lighting, Underhood, Brakes, Under Vehicle, Tires, Scheduled Maintenance recommendations, Test Drive, and Final Vehicle scan. Implementing all these steps into our Pre Purchase inspection allows our technicians to thoroughly search the vehicle for external and internal issues that may or may not be visible to the plain eye and document them within the report that will be emailed and texted to the waiting client.
If you are in the market for a used/ pre-owned vehicle and want to make sure its the best decision contact Bavarian Rennsport and book your pre-purchase inspection online now.
The Vehicle Details Portion allows our technicians to verify the confirmed vehicle information including the License Plate(if possible), Vin number, Year/Make/Model, Color, and Current mileage so the reports can be recorded in our system and to Carfax.

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
I am new to the Bavarian family. My first experience was them working on my all original 1973 2002 Tii a couple of months ago. Communication was great and the work was done in a timely manner. Because of this experience, I trusted them to pick up my new addition to the family last week, 1976 S14 2002. It was a flawless experience. Will get it back to you this week to tidy up some loose ends. Can’t thank you enough for the communication and timeliness of your work.

My relationship with Bavarian Rennsport began with me calling them not knowing what was going on with my car. They quickly had my car towed to the shop, started diagnostics and later that week gave me a full understanding of what was going on with my car. After a short period of time, the car was fixed and I was on the road again. I was able to leave with piece of mind and confidence in The condition of the car. The team at Rennsport is truly like no other. They treated me like family, kept me updated on the condition of the car, reassured me when I was overwhelmed, and conducted business in a very professional manor. I am blessed that my car was taken to Rennsport rather than any other shop or dealer. This team is comprised of true BMW enthusiasts who are passionate of the work that they do. They went above and beyond and their exceptional work shows in my car. I will continue to conduct business with them and I greatly appreciate everything they have done for me and my car.
Had my wife’s AMG GLE Coupe serviced at Bavarian Rennsport today. What a really nice, professional, and efficient crew. They did awesome work and the car was completed on time as promised. I am so pleased, I will be introducing my other vehicle to Bavarian Rennsport in the form of an oil change hopefully tomorrow or Friday (and it’s not due yet). 🙂 If you want first class service at a business that’s well versed in high-end vehicles, I highly recommend this establishment.
Thanks for the great service (20,000 Mile) on our Airstream Sprinter van. Please know how much we appreciated your attention to detail and the time you spent with us to answer all our questions. I will highly recommend you to others and return for any future Van Maintenance.
Jeffrey did excellent work on my classic Mercedes. He quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. In fact he made some adjustments and the car and it now has much better throttle response. I was back on the road on my vacation in no time. Rennsport knows classic cars too.
Just a note to say we were really impressed with our salesman Chris Cutting at Tom Bush BMW in Jacksonville Fl. Not only was he personable but he was very knowledgeable about our BMW X1. It was a very enjoyable experience.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
