The Importance of a Professional BMW Service Provider
How much is an oil change? Budget $100-$130 depending on your BMW model (Around $65 for older BMW’s) If you are paying less you’re missing out on some very important elements.
Using the correct BMW specified engine oil is essential for engine life and any warranty. We use only Mobil 1 0W-40 Full Synthetic. Beware of cut-rate oil changes that use anything less!
An engine oil service at Beckley’s comes with a comprehensive 30 point written inspection performed by an ASE Certified Master Technician. Our highly experienced BMW specialists know what to look for and how to respond to prevent problems and keep your car safe and reliable.
Following the service we reset your oil change reminder and to ensure your car looks as good as it runs, your BMW is hand washed and vacuumed.
This is an outstanding value you won’t find at ordinary repair shops.
How often should I change my oil? While each BMW can be different depending on how you use your car, weather, mileage, etc. generally speaking you can go 7,500 miles safely if you use the correct oil. Change oil annually if you drive less than 10,000 miles/year.
What other service does my BMW need? Important items include spark plugs, fluids, filters, tire rotation and wheel alignment among other things. We know precisely what to monitor to make your car last for extra years without any needless expense. Not all of these systems require attention at the same time.
Here at Beckley’s we keep track of the service you’ve had, what’s due and what’s coming due in the future so you can choose what fits your time and budget. Newer BMW’s use a Condition Based Service (CBS) system to indicate the service required. We have the special tools to talk to this system and keep everything in order.
Please call us with any questions about how to care for your BMW .
Do you provide estimates? You, will always receive an estimate before we perform any work. Because we service so many BMW’s we can generally tell you how much to budget for a service or repair. If a problem requires testing to determine the cause, we agree to a budget for the test.
Our customers often tell us it costs less to have their car serviced here than at the new car dealership.
Is a pre-owned BMW a good idea? It can be a great idea. Today’s cars will easily go 150,000 thousand miles or more when they are maintained properly. (My own BMW has over 100,000 and runs great!) We provide thorough BMW pre-purchase inspections.
Call us for “insider” information about the best models.
What else should I know about my BMW? Put GOOD tires on it. Your BMW has the world’s best brakes and steering and you enjoy that every time you drive. But they only perform as well as your tires and discount tires (like a discount oil change) are no bargain on you BMW.
