Your car is like your body. When you take good care of your car, focus on preventative measures, and accept nothing but the best in terms of repair and upkeep, then your car will enjoy a long, long life. If you’re lucky enough to own a BMW, it’s even more important to maintain a high level of care for your car.
There are plenty of people driving beloved BMWs with more than 200,000 miles on them because the right upkeep has allowed their cars to keep on ticking past the lifespan of most other cars. That’s because your BMW is the ultimate driving machine that is known for its superior German engineering. So what exactly should you be doing to ensure your car stays with you for a long time to come?
One simple word: maintenance. In particular, meticulous maintenance. The attention to detail given to each BMW when it is constructed is the same type of attention to detail required in its maintenance to keep your BMW in top shape.
Oil is the lifeblood of your BMW’s engine, so ignoring your oil filter can only result in damage. An oil filter removes contaminants from engine oil so that oil flow isn’t restricted. This is a very simple maintenance task but easily forgotten. Take the care to change your filters as needed and you won’t have any problems.
Your BMW’s spark plugs deliver electric current from the ignition system to the combustion chamber in order to ignite the fuel and air mixture and generate enough power to move your BMW into drive. The longer you use old spark plugs, the worse your BMW’s engine with perform. Eventually all of that procrastinating will result in a dead car on the side of the road, so take care of the maintenance before it’s even needed.
Without high-quality oil available to complete its essential roles in the engine, your BMW will suffer consequences like wear and tear, corrosion, and clogging. An oil change every 3,000 miles can make all the difference for a smooth running car.
Just a few simple maintenance measures will keep your BMW in the shape it deserves.
