Is your Ultimate Driving Machine Spring Ready? New Season Tips that You Need to Know About!


Spring 2018 is officially here! As most of us are prepping for the fun in the sun set to come, pleasant weather and taking to the open roads for road trips and vacations during this time of the year. It is important for all of you taking adventure by the horns this new season that your Ultimate Driving Machine is up to challenge. Here are 4 tips to ensure that it does just that!


First Stop, Vehicle Check Up

The place to start with ensuring that your vehicle is up to par for any road is getting a multi-point check inspection from your local dealership. If you own a BMW in the Charlottesville, VA area our service center at BMW of Charlottesville will be an awesome starting point. Make sure during the inspection that fluid levels are checked and adjusted if needed, tire pressure is checked, breaks pads, steering columns, and it will be a perfect time to complete that oil change you’ve been putting off for 1,000 mile before heading on the road. Windshield wipers should also be replaced during this time if needed as well as attention to your air and cabin filters need to be done. Professionals certified to work on your vehicle always know best, so to avoid being in doubt of whether your car can make it three hours or more and get it tested first.


Your Ultimate Driving Machine Needs Spring Cleaning Too

One of the most hardworking members of our families that often gets left out of the spring cleaning equation is our vehicles. We normally are most concerned with spring cleaning every aspect of our homes, our lives and even our office settings. But more often than not we neglect our vehicle that has been faithful to us all year long. This spring make sure you take the time to clean out your car before any road trips or spring breaks. As studies show having access weight in your car can aid in losing the actual miles per gallon you can get out of your vehicle. So start with removing the items that you no longer need or is no longer needed to be handy in your vehicle. This is going to include, seasonal items (heavy coats, gloves extra blanket,) workout gear (ESPECIALLY if you have any type of exercise equipment like dung bells, basketballs etc.,) and donations and returns (DROPP THEM OFF, no more procrastination with your garbage bag of clothes that need to make it to the Goodwill drop off, or month old clothing returns that need to be shipped back to its seller.) It’s time to let it all go!


Final Stop, It’s Time for a Good Wash Inside and Out

Now that your vehicle is rejuvenated mechanically and purged of all unnecessary items, it’s time to get your ultimate driving machine cleaned thoroughly. Whether you decide to do it yourself or not, ensure that all surfaces on the insides of your car are fully wiped down and dust is removed that may have accumulated during the winter months. If you live in a state that was plagued with snow this past winter, it also very important that your undercarriage is properly tended to and cleaned off. As salt can have built up in your undercarriage due to cities salting their roads, which in turn can cause erosion on your vehicle. For those of you who want to let the professionals handle it, lucky for you our professionals at BMW of Charlottesville are always available to offer detailing and spa services.
