You didn’t build a solid savings account, assets, and other wealth by throwing away money. You wouldn’t consider yourself frugal, but since you’ve purchased a new BMW, you might be looking for ways to save money when it comes to maintenance on that vehicle.
Just because it’s a BMW doesn’t mean you’re not going to have to keep up with general maintenance on a regular basis. If you have a tendency to cut corners with regard to your BMW, it may not impact you right away, but over time it’s going to have a significant impact.
Below are a number of reasons why it’s important to give your BMW the service it deserves.
1. Cheap providers may not fully understand specific dynamics of BMWs.
If you bring your car to a service center that is not authorized to work on BMWs, the technicians there may know a lot about cars, but BMWs are not like your average vehicle on the roads today. They may repair basic things okay, but your BMW might not run the way you’ve grown accustomed to or the way it should afterward.
2. The right oil can make a world of difference.
The weight and viscosity rating of the oil is important. If your BMW calls for fully synthetic oil, don’t cut corners by having the cheapest kind added to your engine. There is an incredible amount of heat and friction created within the engine and it needs to be protected as much as possible.
3. Changing spark plugs, air filters, and even engine coolant at the right intervals all help to protect your engine.
With the amount of stress generated within an engine, having everything working properly, including air moving throughout the engine, coolant that is clean and relatively new, and spark plugs that ignite the fuel as they were designed to will all impact performance and the longevity of your BMW.
