BMW Service Records?

Can anyone help me obtain BMW service records? Do employees of other dealerships have access to a car's records? I have a VIN and the dealer in which the car was serviced...I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the specifics as to what was addressed on the car.

Just call them up or go in person and they should provide it to you. I've done this several times in the past and haven't had any issues.

I'm not local to the dealership. You think they'll provide the info via fax? I doubt they'd email it...

Only those working at the dealer where the car was physically serviced will be able to get you records. Other dealerships can only pull warranty based servicing/repairs.

You may also need to prove you own the car (ie. show the ownership/registration) when asking for the records.

Not sure how it is in the US, but here, for privacy they won't email or fax records unless the previous owner's personal information is redacted.

If it was serviced at Bmw any dealer should be able to help.

Hmmmm...I'm trying to determine if an '09 I'm looking at purchasing has had updated injectors and turbos installed. I already have the owners "information"-I don't care if they block it out or not.

A local dealership will be able to do this for you. I also once had a SA (Service Advisor) text me a screen shot of all service/warranty work.

They will only be able to send you logged warranty work, all other work might be accessible through carfax.
