Drive carefully

This may go without saying, but driving carefully can have a huge impact on how long your BMW runs. Aggressive, fast, or otherwise careless drivers may enjoy their wild driving styles, but the rowdy fun comes at a price. Accelerating quickly, stopping suddenly, taking tight corners, or driving in any sort of jerky, unsanctioned fashion will lead to way more wear and tear on your vehicle. Ultimately, that results in more frequent maintenance and higher repair bills. 

Put clean gas in your BMW 

As the saying goes, what goes in, comes out. Your BMW vehicle is a high-performance machine that demands quality fuel. The gas we put in our cars ranges in purity and effectiveness. Reputable gas stations will have their gas filtered at the pump and the pump filters changed regularly. Low-quality stations won’t have filters, leaving you with dirty gasoline, they may not mix alcohol with the fuel properly, or worse of all, they may water down your product. It’s worth picking a station or brand you trust and sticking with it.

Check the tread on your tires 

Tires wear down over time. Check your tire tread regularly to see if it’s time to replace your tires or not. Visually, if you see that your tire tread is flat and smooth in some spots, then that can indicate that you may need to consider new tires. Additionally, if you see chunks or gouges in your tires, then a replacement is in need as well.
