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. If you have a BMW or want to buy, bmw owners manual is what you may need.
