BMW Servicing

When it comes to regular BMW maintenance, a key component is regular servicing by fully-trained and certified professionals. Here at Carbon-Sol, we provide a detailed and thorough BMW service on all ranges and models. Our team of skilled mechanics bring decades of experience to each service, ensuring your vehicle is running at optimum efficiency.

What Does a BMW
Service Involve?

A BMW service is an all-over check-up for your vehicle. In the same way you might visit your GP for a regular health check to make sure everything is ticking away as it should, our BMW service offers the same peace of mind for your car. It also allows us to spot potential problems that might lie ahead for your car down the road. By spotting wear-and-tear early on, you can avoid serious and expensive repairs in the future.

  • I Already Have My MOT – Do I Need a BMW Service as Well?

  • -
  • Your annual MOT test is designed to make sure your vehicle is fit to be on the road, and nothing more. While it covers some of the points a full BMW service covers, it is nowhere near as in-depth. A BMW service goes into greater detail and checks all of your car’s key components.
  • How Often Should I Get a BMW Service?

  • -
  • You can get your car serviced as often as you want, but we recommend you have it at least every two years – or sooner, depending on your mileage. Having a car service every 5000 to 8000 miles helps to keep your oil fresh and maximise car lubrication
  • What Happens If You Find Something Wrong?

  • -
  • At the end of your BMW service, we will make recommendations for any repairs or improvements that will benefit your car, but you are under no obligation to do them. The only exception is if part of your car is so damaged as to make it no longer roadworthy. In those circumstances, you can either have the repair work done, or arrange for your car to be transported back to your home address.
