					Spring Repair and Maintenance Tips for Your BMW



It takes a lot of time and effort to keep a luxury car looking fantastic and running smoothly.
When spring rolls around and the winter months have passed, it’s time to get down and dirty
and get your vehicle for the warm and sunny seasons. You should look at several areas when
performing maintenance on your BMW:



The Interior

  More than likely the carpet and flooring in your BMW is subjected to lots of water and salt
throughout the winter; therefore, rust may be forming in places you can’t even see, such as
below your car’s carpet. A high quality rug/carpeting shampoo will help you to remove any salt
and/or grime from your BMW’s carpet fibers. Don’t forget to clean and freshen up the car’s
upholstery too.

   Clean any vinyl in the car with a vinyl cleansing product to help fight against any drying,
flaking, or cracking.

  Scrub and shine your BMW’s windows, both inside and out, to increase the driver’s visibility.




Under the Hood

 Switch out your BMW’s engine oil & filter if it is needed (you should do this around every 3
months).

 Get a thorough tune-up from a professional BMW maintenance shop if necessary (check your
BMW owner’s manual to see the frequency at which you should get a tune up).

  Look at and inspect the cooling system hoses for leaks, switch out engine coolant fluid if
needed, and check drive belts for cracks or splits.

  Have a professional test your antifreeze. This prevents your coolant from boiling in the
summer.
Check Your Tires

  Check the pressure of your BMW’s tires. Changes in temperature (even the change from
winter to spring) can affect it. Having good pressure in your tires will give you the best gas
mileage and save your tires from any wear & tear!

  Make sure your tires are in good condition. Over the winter season, did they sustain any
damage? Do you see anything visibly wrong with the tires such as any cuts or places of over-
inflation (bulges) in the side walls? If so, visit a professional maintenance shop and have them
checked.



Take note of these spring maintenance tips for your BMW and head outdoors and take a look at
your car! You may also need some maintenance manuals.
