BMW Maintenance for the M Series
North Bay Bavarian has been the go-to BMW service center in Santa Rosa for more than 30 years. Our customers appreciate that we’re able to work on BMWs from the 70’s just as well as brand new M Series models. Some of our customers wonder how the BMW maintenance schedule should change between older BMWs and newer BMWs. In this article we look at BMW maintenance in general, the BMW maintenance schedule and the special requirements associated with BMW race models.
Does My M Series Require Special Maintenance?
BMW vehicles are known for their high standard of design. The BMW M Series is no exception. The “M”, a.k.a. M-Technik or Motorsport, was created to bolster BMW’s racing program. M Series BMWs often include BMW upgrades such as modified engines, transmissions, suspensions, interior trims, aerodynamics and exterior nuances that set them apart from their counterparts.
Commuter-type BMWs benefit from a strict BMW maintenance schedule. The benefits of strict maintenance for higher performing BMWs such as M Series BMWs are many. Assuming the M Series owner drives his car hard, adhering to strict maintenance can be critical. Many minor vehicle issues, when left unchecked, become major vehicle issues. This phenomenon is especially true for race-type vehicles.
What Qualifies North Bay Bavarian Beyond Other Shops?
We have grown into the area’s largest BMW service shop. We realize that a reputation isn’t just based on who has been around longest. That is why we strive every day to offer the best service available. We excel in trouble-shooting M Series BMWs. Why? Because we love to race BMWs at every opportunity, and we know well the stresses that tight turns and max speeds take on your car.
North Bay Bavarian has the know-how to perform service and repairs on the M Series that other shops cannot. We fully believe that ultimate driving machines require ultimate service, and we deliver that service to all of our customers.
The average cost per quarter to maintain a BMW through the dealership service center is about $445. That said, the actual cost per quarter to maintain your vehicle will depend on the model, year and how much regular maintenance the vehicle receives. The cost per visit for well-maintained vehicles will always be less than that of poorly maintained vehicles.
BMWs can be some of the most expensive vehicles to service if not regular maintenance is not applied. When choosing a BMW maintenance and repair shop in Santa Rosa, choose a shop that has more than thirty years of experience working with BMWs.
At North Bay Bavarian, we do everything we can to ensure that you are always completely satisfied.
