BMW Service

Quality Motors loves BMWs! Our staff have been fans of the brand since before there was such a thing as a 3-series or a 5-series, but through our decades of experience we have grown to love all of their vehicles more. Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works in German) started in the early 20th century in Munich, Germany making airplane engines, motorcycle engines and kit-car engines for the 1910-20s Austin brand of vehicles before producing their own vehicles. They started producing motorcycles and their own licensed version of the Austin 7 carriage design that BMW called “the Dixi.” Soon they produced their own sedan with it’s own distinctive “kidney grilles” that is still featured on BMWs entire range of vehicles ever since.

Q: How often should I need to replace my rotors?

A: The life of a brake rotors depends on many factors, the area you are driving in ie: hills, all freeway stop and go etc… But in general, most vehicles will need new rotors every other time the brake pads are replaced.

Q: My brakes are squealing, does that mean I need new brakes?

A: No, it does not mean you need new brakes, the squeal is generated from the dust on me pad causing a vibration. You may still need brakes, but not just because they are squealing.

An industry trend in auto maintenance offers consumers an increase in the number of repair chains dedicated to specific services such as oil changes, mufflers, tires, brakes, etc. These chains claim to offer super-quick service and super-cheap prices, but are you really getting a bargain? Not necessarily.

Let’s look at oil changes and point out some differences between a Full-Service Shop like Quality Motors, and a “10 minute” shop or a mobile mechanic service:

  • With a Full-Service Repair Shop, you get a dedicated, industry-certified, professional mechanic working on your car. Someone who’s experienced and considers his job a career. By contrast, you could end up with a disinterested, inexperienced, between-jobs person with very little long-term commitment.
  • With a Full-Service Shop, you get a facility that can handle every safety and repair issue that might come up. Or, you could use a shop that just cherry picks all the “easy” stuff and overlooks, or ignores everything else.
  • With a Full-Service Shop, you build a relationship with a single source for ALL your vehicle’s maintenance, repair, and service. No passing the buck there! During the course of a “simple” oil change service, our mechanics are also examining your entire car from top to bottom.We inspect hoses, belts, CV boots, tire condition, radiator, fans, fluids, undercarriage, etc. When you stop in for a “10 minute” service, you only get 10 minutes of service!

Vehicles today are very complex and expensive! Having all of your service and repair work done at a single location allows us to know and track your cars history. It takes the guesswork out of what was done, and what might have been missed or overlooked. The bottom line is this: thorough maintenance is money (and time) well spent.

BMW Inspection Services

The Inspection first visit is at approximately 30,000 miles or 1 year. The exact time is determined by the vehicle’s “Condition-Based Service” system. Then it is approximately every 30,000 miles or 2 years. This applies for model year 2009 and newer. In addition to Inspection services, Quality Motors recommends a interim oil and filter change every 5,000 miles.

This is what we do for this service:

  1. Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  2. Oil Filter Replacement
  3. Cabin Filter Replacement
  4. Complete digital vehicle inspection with a report emailed to you at time of service. This insures that you can discuss the images and information in the report with your client adviser and make informed decisions on additional repairs that may be needed.
  5. Check all exterior lighting.
  6. Reset Maintenance Counter
  7. Road test and car wash.

All services and repairs performed by Quality Motors will maintain your new car warranty.
