It’s a feeling that never gets old: heading out your door in the morning and seeing your shiny BMW waiting for you, ready to get on the road. Sleek, powerful, and luxurious, your BMW is like another member of your family, and of course, you want to keep it in top shape for maximum performance.
As with any vehicle, this entails an attentive eye both around the car and under the hood. With a bit of foresight, you can prevent major issues from occurring – but the fact is, every car manufacturer has a different set of guidelines and techniques, and BMW is no exception. In order to get the most out of it, you’ll need to get it looked at by a mechanic who’s properly trained – and luckily for you, they work at Euroworks!
We have a specific list of tune-ups, inspections, and general maintenance that are meant for the BMW brand, and are uniquely qualified to deliver it. Some of the services we offer are:
BMW Intermediate Oil Service: Frequent and relatively inexpensive, your Service Interval System will tell you when you need an oil change. If in doubt, a good guideline is to get one every 8,000 – 10,000 km. At Euroworks, we’ll use the right tools, the right lubricants, and do it the right way from start to finish, every time.
BMW Oil & Safety Service: A bit more in-depth, this includes the oil change and filter, as well as a safety check of your entire vehicle. This is a great check-up before any long trips, as it tests your brakes, indicator and dashboard lights, belts and hoses, fluids, steering, leaks, as well as your suspension. You can drive in peace knowing that we’ve given it a proper inspection!
BMW Inspection 1: Also called the “Minor Service”, this inspection is recommended by BMW at certain odometer intervals, just to make sure everything is working as well as it should. On older models (1986-1998), it is advised to have one done at 32,000, 100,000, and 175,000 km; for 1999 and later models, stop in at 50,000, 150,000, and 225,000 km. At just $200 (plus any parts/labour), it’s a great way to keep your BMW in prime condition.
BMW Inspection 2: Also known as the “Major Service”, this is recommended by BMW as a corollary to the Minor Service. More in depth and thorough (but still cost-effective at just $250 + parts/labour), it ensures that you won’t have any unforeseen problems when you’re out enjoying your drives! For the older models (as above), come in at 65,000, 125,000, and 200,000 km; for post-1999 vehicles, see us at 100,000 and 200,000 km.
If your BMW has a Condition Based Service (CBS) system, it will keep you aware of many of your components and engine fluid levels as time goes on, and alert you when it’s time to bring your car in for service. By staying on top of these, you can keep driving your BMW for years to come – and with the right mechanics doing the work, you’ll be even more at ease.
