BMW maintenance tips from the experts

 In Star Tech News

BMWs are incredibly stylish cars with strong engines that offer drivers excellent performance and comfort. However, in order to keep your BMW looking fresh and operating efficiently, it is imperative you perform regular maintenance on your car. Here are some DIY BMW maintenance tips to maximise the performance of your car.

What YOU can do to maintain your BMW

Keeping your BMW clean and tidy is something that can be easily overlooked but requires your attention. This is because dirt and other particles can cause damage to the delicate components of your BMW. A way of preventing rust and keeping your car in pristine condition is by regularly waxing your car. This can either be done by you or by going to the car wash.

Regularly check your tyres for any wear and tear as this could affect traction and the stopping distance of your BMW. This will also ensure that you avoid any penalties for tyre offences.

It goes without saying that you must drive sensibly and handle your BMW with care. This means avoid accelerating quickly, stopping abruptly and driving in an erratic fashion. Whenever possible, try to carry out any tasks or errands at once so that you avoid constantly turning your engine on and off. This avoids adding unnecessary wear on your vehicle. Consequently, your BMW will achieve better MPG (miles per gallon) and your maintenance costs will be lower.
