Winter can take its toll on your vehicle so our team wants to make sure how to prepare your car. First, it's best to swap out the all-season tires for winter tires. If you live in a region where the temperature drops below 45 degrees, winter tires will be helpful because they give you better traction when stopping and turning on pavement that is cold. It's also smart to check tire pressure weekly because driving with tires that are underinflated can make them wear down and have less traction on slippery surfaces. Also, consider keeping your tank at least half full at all times in case you get stuck in the snow and are waiting for assistance. During the colder months, it's also suggested to add a coat of polymer wax to protect your vehicle against sleet, grime, salt, and other elements. Consider getting a high-pressure car wash after a big storm to clear off hard to reach places like the underbody and wheels. Windshield wipers should also be protected. When you park outdoors, put the wipers in a raised position to avoid them from freezing and sticking to the windshield. Be sure not to utilize the windshield wipers to remove frost, snow, and ice. That's the job of an ice scraper.
Bimmer Rescue is honored to be earning rave reviews from happy customers. Here’s one from a recent satisfied client:
“Honesty+Quality=Loyalty Patrick and Mike have brought back the most important thing in a business, REAL customer service! Patrick and Mike is honest with their diagnosis of the issues, researches problems and solutions when needed, and educates the customer in a simple and understandable way. The quality of work shows just how much they care about the work they do. Patrick has even gone above and beyond to help our family in recommending vehicles as well as stayed after hours to go through options. Not only do I have pure confidence, but it is because of them I can feel comfortable in any car, even those high maintenance ones that we all fear driving too close to the shop!” -- Amanda K.
