Inspections Checklist

Did you guys have a BMW(BMWUSA) checklist for services and inspections I & II (parts that needs to be replaced etc..used by dealerships.)for E92. I found one for e36/e46 but i'm looking for one more updated if any.

Short answer is that there is not one. On newer cars BMW did away with Inspection I & II and went to a Condition Based Service (CBS).

Check your Warranty/Service Manual.

Instead of Inspections I & II, oil changes are CBS (condition based) and are divorced from the Inspection Service which is now called for at 30,000 mile intervals. It includes a scope, a number of visual, electrical and mechanical checks and a road test. No specific parts are replaced.

Oil changes have always been CBS-based since the mid '80s. Inspection I & II services have always been separate maintenance items from oil changes.

Not quite. At least on my '97 E36 Z3 and '99 E46 328i, Inspection I & II services each included an oil service and were scheduled at every other CBS oil change. Now the Inspection is purely mileage based while the oil change remains CBS.
