How to Prepare Your BMW for the Spring

How to Prepare Your BMW for the Spring

Spring is going to be here sooner than you realize, and there are certain things that need to be done in terms of maintenance for your marvelous BMW.

Let us begin with the tires of your BMW. If it has winter tires on right now, you should have them changed when the weather starts getting appropriate for the change. If the BMW is equipped with all-season tires, however, they might not need to be changed right away. You can consult a professional mechanic if you are uncertain if they need changing or not.

After the winter conditions on the roads, it is highly doubtful that your vehicle is in impeccable shape in terms of cleanness. You would want to clean the undercarriage from any salt that might have stuck on it. Also, thoroughly wash the car and then wax it. If you haven’t been cleaning it on the inside, it is high time you do so.

Go to an auto repair shop, preferably one that specializes in the service and repair of BMW vehicles, and have the oil and filter of your car changed. It is not a service that will consume too much of your time, and it is one that is very good for the engine of your BMW.

Check the condition of the wiper blades and if you think that they won’t be able to do their job, change them or have them changed.

Enjoy your BMW and have a great spring season!

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.
