Why do I need an BMW service?
Reliability – We know our BMW customers appreciate the agility of their vehicles. With our BMW service, we guarantee a smoother drive and optimal fuel efficiency to keep your journeys hassle-free.
Longevity – We don’t need to tell you that you own a luxury brand. So why not keep it that way? Our expert service maintains the condition of your car, keeping it running at peak performance, for a longer lifespan.
Safety – It only takes one small fault to let you down. Our competent technicians repair small faults before they cause bigger problems, to keep you safe on the roads. And, you’ll pass your MOT first time.
Savings – By finding and repairing small faults early on, you reduce the cost of the overall upkeep of your BMW. And, a serviced car has a higher resale value. Who can fault that?
How do I know if one is due?
How often you require a service depends on how much you use your BMW. On average, we recommend a service every 12 months, or every 12,000 miles. Some older models may also benefit from an interim service every 6 months, for added safety.
If you’re unsure which option is best, we’ll assess your car for free and determine the best service plan for you. With Marc’s Garage, you know exactly when to expect your next service – we notify you 4 weeks in advance of your next visit.
Are you able to service my BMW without it affecting the warranty?
Absolutely. New changes in legislation mean BMW drivers can choose any garage to service their car, keeping the warranty intact.
We’re fully versed in BMW manufacture standards, so we provide a market-leading BMW service, at local prices. Our workmanship is also assured by the Servicesure Autocentres’ 12-month warranty, so you know we’re an independent BMW garage you can trust.
What happens during an BMW Preston service?
Lighting & Visibility – The front, rear, and internal lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, and wipers are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are cleaned and maintained for clarity and sturdiness.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks or faults, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.
Vehicle Interior – Seat belts are tested in line with safety standards. All internal controls are checked, such as the horn, hazard light button, and other vehicle controls for responsiveness and function. Using diagnostics, we complete full system analysis. This includes reviewing the air conditioning, making sure warning messages are addressed, and checking for intermittent and permanent faults flagged by the computer.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – Wheel alignment is analysed, and all joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected for sturdiness and function. . The front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested to ensure the suspension functions effectively and maintains the right level of friction.
Braking – Both the front and rear brake mechanisms are checked and measured in line with safety requirements, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – The trays under your car are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is then checked for leaks, rust, and corrosion.
Tyre Inspection – All wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for sturdiness, weak points, and corrosion. Tyres reads are inspected for significant wear, and tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We also check your spare wheel and/or inflation kit if appropriate for your vehicle.
Final Checks – We assess the brake fluid and conduct an antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Finally, we fill your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
How will I be kept informed on the progress of my BMW service?
