Over the years cars have changed and evolved with modern day technology. And as more electric parts are added to cars, you can no longer fix common care issues with the basic wrench and hammer.
As BWM repair specialists, we have seen many cars where attempts have been made to rectify issues, but sometimes doing it your self can end up being a bigger job than you imagined!
Being a car enthusiast and as tempting as it may seem, these are the top repairs you should leave to the professionals!
1: Windshield replacement
Replacing a windshield is much complicated than it looks. This is one of the most important parts of your car as it protects you when you are driving. So if installed incorrectly, it can put your life at risk. It’s always best to get a BMW specialist to repair any windshield damage so that they get the right glass for your model.
This is one repair you shouldn’t really skimp on!
2: Timing Belts
In order to change the timing belt, you pretty much need to take your car apart. Timing belts are like the glue that holds everything together in your car. Usually, they last about 60,000-70,000 miles but if they do break, you need to get it replaced as soon as possible, to prevent further damage to the car.
We understand it’s important to keep your pride and joy looking its best at all times. Which is why you shouldn’t tamper with the bodywork, as chances are you won’t be able to get it in the mint condition you are after.
BWM uses a special finish that requires a careful colour matching to get right. And not being able to find the exact match on your parts can devalue your vehicle.
As BMWs are known for their speed and smooth ride, so it’s important to get the transmissions right. This is a job for a certified technician who understands the mechanics and has all the right tools for the job.
Most modern cars, especially BMWs are now built with sophisticated electronics, which requires equipped professionals to repair and re-calibrate. So stay away from the YouTube videos and let the specialists deal with it.
