Sometimes when checking your BMW car care schedule, you’ll see it is time for an oil change. Yes, sometimes is right, because your BMW car doesn’t need them very often. That is only one of the things that make owning a BMW so nice.

BMW Car Care

For BMW car care, you don’t need to run to get your oil changed every time the moon becomes new. You change your oil every 7500 miles, that is the manufacturer’s recommendation. The reason you can go so long between changes is because your BMW uses synthetic oil. Sure, it costs more than typical motor oil, but it is cleaner and holds up a lot longer. So, you’ll get twice the miles between oil changes and your engine is better off for it.

European Mechanic

One of the advantages of using a mechanic that specializes in European makes of cars is that they know what parts and fluids are best for your car. You don’t have to worry about getting the wrong oil that will gum everything up. Of course, the recommendation will vary depending on where you live. Your mechanic at A1 Performance Auto Repair European Specialist will let you know which to use in The Bay Area.
