A Brief History of BMW

BMW have been manufacturing luxury cars since the 1930s, and they join the other German car brands such as Mercedes and Audi in being a brand of status and producing impeccably made cars. BMW was founded in 1916 and stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke or in English – Bavarian Motor Works.

Over the years, the company has expanded into producing luxury executive cars and motorcycles, and crossover SUVs and electric hybrid cars. BMW sell over 2 million cars a year worldwide, and are one of the biggest car brands in the world.

The Importance Of Booking In A Regular BMW Service

Getting a regular car service helps to maintain the optimum performance of the car and helps to keep it in peak condition, as well as increase the car’s resale value should you ever decide to sell the car on. As well as ensuring it is working at its best – it is also a key time to get safety checks done and inspect the effectiveness of the breaks and engine.

Common BMW problems can include steering wheel vibrations, oil leaks, power steering leaks, sputtering, electronic problems or a coolant leak. At Power Developments, we can help to identify these or any other problems that may have occurred during your service with us and we will aim to fix it there and then.

How often should my BMW have a service?

It is recommended that you get your BMW serviced every 10,000 miles or every twelve months, whichever comes first. This will ensure that any issues are picked up early and before they cause further problems or become more expensive to repair due to extensive damage. At Power Developments, we keep our prices as low as possible, so servicing yearly is affordable.

What does a car service consist of?

During a car service, we will run diagnostics to identify any problems along with a full vehicle inspection, oil change, repairs and maintenance. Along with this, we will check the breaks, clutch, transmission and engine to ensure they’re all working at their best and are in tip top condition. If we do identify an issue, we will make you aware of this and the cost before moving forward with the recommended repairs.
