The Benefits of Booking a Regular BMW Car Service
Regularly servicing will maintain your warranty and help you sell your vehicle for a better price in the future.
Do we need to constantly reinvent the wheel? It seems not, as far as BMW and its loyal customers are concerned.
With pictures released of the marque’s Vision M Next concept coupe, there’s a welcome nod back in time to BMW’s M1 supercar from the 1970s. There are even a few design comparisons with the i8 performance model.
That, says BMW Group’s head of design, Adrian van Hooydonk, is because customers don’t want BMW to turn into something they don’t recognise.
BMW Car Repair
The solution is to create two modes: Boost and Ease. Some models will be set up to change between the two, whilst others will choose a mode and stick with it.
How will these changes affect BMW repairs and maintenance in the future? Interestingly, the number of auto mechanics is set to increase not fall, which is positive news. However, the nature of the industry will change; as automotive systems become increasingly computer-driven, mechanics will need to become highly skilled master technicians.
This is already the case where BMW is concerned, both in the manufacturer of its vehicles, and the mechanics who work on them around Australia. The days of tinkering with your car engine in the backyard on a Sunday afternoon are numbered. With newer models, a BMW car service is an intricate business that demands the right equipment.
The majority of BMW owners wisely choose to take their vehicle to a specialist for BMW maintenance, knowing they have the computer diagnostic tools needed to get the job done fast and right.
Have you noticed that cars always break down at the worst possible time? It can be tempting to try and fix the problem yourself, but you could actually make it worse. Your BMW engine is a complex beast and, with no disrespect, it’s unlikely you’re up to the task unless you’re a qualified BMW mechanic.
But consider this: if your BMW is regularly serviced and maintained, the chances of a breakdown are drastically reduced. Too many people try to save money by missing scheduled services and end up paying out more in costly repairs.
The RACQ says just under half of Queensland drivers don’t get their vehicles serviced regularly and usually end up paying the price with unplanned breakdowns. There are many reasons why choosing a professional BMW car service is a wise move.
Regularly servicing will maintain your warranty and help you sell your vehicle for a better price in the future. Remember, you don’t need to return to the dealership for logbook servicing – any registered BMW technician can do the job for you.
Regular BMW maintenance will keep your car’s engine in peak condition for the most effective and cost-efficient performance. All moving parts wear over time and should be replaced before they detrimentally affect other parts of the engine.
Engine oil also needs to be replaced regularly as it loses its effectiveness over time. When this happens, your engine won’t get the lubrication it needs and could overheat. You should ensure you use the correct grade of motor oil, too.
Regularly maintained vehicles use less fuel, which means more money in your pocket. Replacing the fuel and air filters and spark plugs, and checking the tyres is part of the service and all of these can affect fuel consumption. In addition, as motor oil ages it thickens, causing the moving parts to work harder which uses more fuel and shortens the lifespan of those parts.
Brakes, steering, suspension and wheels/tyres are key factors in keeping you safe on the road. All these systems should be checked regularly and will be covered in a professional BMW car service. Avoid regular servicing to save money is a fool’s game as it could end up costing your life.
Regular servicing will keep your vehicle on the road for longer to save you money. In additional, if you decide to sell the car, evidence of regular servicing will get you a quicker sale at a better price.
Every vehicle has some impact on the environment. However, by regularly servicing your BMW, you can help reduce pollution and better care for the planet.
Peace of mind
Whether it’s getting to work on time or taking the kids to school, you want to be sure your car will start and run when you need it. Unexpected breakdowns cause inconvenience and expense at the very least; they can also be very stressful, especially if your car fails you in the middle of nowhere with no mobile phone reception!
