Save Yourself $1,000 Every Year with BMW Repairs from Atlantic Autowerks

It’s time to face facts: cars are expensive. And why wouldn’t they be?

Like a Swiss watch, every BMW is crafted with superior quality, intricate and reliable mechanisms, and seamless use. That being said, Swiss watches aren’t powered by a fuel-injected, 400 horsepower V6 engine.

Over the course of a year, the average car accumulates about 13,500 miles. For each one of those miles, the unfortunate reality is that a major repair becomes increasingly likely. According to, the average major service for a BMW can cost between $1,000 to $3,000, where you could pay at least $1,000 a year on maintenance and minor repairs alone. These costs are an unfortunate reality of car ownership for most people. Yet while there’s no way to eliminate car repair costs, there is a way to minimize them. In today’s blog post, we’ll be discussing how you could save yourself over $1,000 each year on BMW repair through regular maintenance and care.

Simple Tactics to Maintain Your BMW at Home

While it may seem like common sense to some, the best place to start maintaining your BMW’s health is at home. While we won’t lecture you on the ins and outs of filling up your oil, there are a handful of maintenance techniques that are simple to perform and could have long-term effects on maintaining your BMW’s value.

As simple as it sounds, the first thing we recommend is to always park your car in the shade. Like us, the UV rays from the sun can cause damage to your BMW’s exterior and interior. If you have leather seats, in particular, you’ll find that an overabundance of heat and sunlight can dry the oils within the leather, damaging your seats.

We also recommend routinely (every three months) waxing your car. While, psychologically, keeping your car looking nice is half the battle to maintaining it, wax also keeps rust at bay and protects the clear coat of your car’s paint.

Working with Atlantic Autowerks to Save Money

While there are dozens of other things you could do to maintain your BMW at home (that we don’t have time to discuss in this blog post) we at Atlantic Autowerks have the privilege of being specially trained in BMW maintenance—that way, you don’t have to be. When you ask for an inspection of your BMW, we’ll check your vehicle for any problems before they occur and refill or replace your car’s fluids, filters, and spark plugs if any aren’t already in top condition. Replacing your fluids, filters, and plugs is a cheap option that, when done routinely, could save you over $1,000 a year in complications.
