BMWs are still one of the most popular cars on the roads today. Their mixture of style, power, reliability and performance has seen them become the car of choice for many drivers. Whether it is the sprightly 1 series, executive 4 series or X series range of SUVs, BMW cars really do offer something for everyone. Of course, once you’ve bought a Beamer, you will want to look after it properly. But how do you protect yours and keep it looking as good as new?
Avoid Direct Sunlight Where PossibleStrong, direct sunlight can seriously damage your car over time. The main loser will be your paintwork which will fade or even crack when exposed to the sun over an extended period. Being exposed to excessive heat for long periods can also overheat your engine block. Of course, you cannot avoid driving around in the sun when it is out but you should take precautions like parking in the shade and parking in your garage when at home.
Another great tip to protect your BMW is to think about the interior. If you are looking for one of the best ways to protect your BMW, covering your leather seats is up there! This not only keeps them clean and mark-free but will also stop sunlight fading them.
Protect The Inside Of The Vehicle
Of course, perhaps the best idea to protect your BMW from damage is simply driving at a reasonable speed. Just because you can go up to 70 on the motorway doesn’t always mean you should! You can wear out parts of your car over time with heavy use. Sudden braking and swerving caused by going faster than average can also take their toll on your car. A BMW is strong but not indestructible!
Stay Under The Redline
Preparing your car for the season you are driving in is also a smart move. So many people fail to do this and drive their BMW around in winter just as they do in summer, as if the two seasons don’t come with different challenges to your car. Winter, for example, sees lots of salt on the road which you need to prepare your BMW to face with a wash & wax beforehand. On the other side of the coin, the typical summer means keeping your car covered and out of direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, whereas in winter you can leave your car out all day (no danger of sun then!). Think about the season you are in, what dangers it poses to your car's condition, and take action to protect it.
