The New BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

It’s a fact that BMW have always been real trend setters when it comes to vehicle design and innovation, but there’s one trend which I find quite interesting, and that is calling a four door car a coupe! It began with the X6 Coupe which we all know is a four door, and now it’s […]

Diagnosis, X-Rays and Blood tests!

Why is it okay for doctors and health care professionals to charge for diagnosis like x-rays and blood tests, but it’s not okay for mechanics or technicians to charge for diagnosis? One of my most fascinating observations over the past 24 years as an owner of an automotive service centre is that many customers don’t […]

The New BMW X3

The new BMW X3 is a far cry from its predecessor.  This new all-wheel-drive model is an outstanding piece of machinery which actually drives and handles like a sports coupe, and looks so much better than the last one! The performance from the new engines is truly breathtaking and to think that they only use […]

Going Overseas?

In the last two years, we have noticed a growing trend with many of our customers travelling overseas during our winter months. However, a problem can arise with a car’s battery if it is sitting around doing nothing for two or more weeks. Last year, we had many instances with flat batteries after the owners […]

The New BMW 3 Series

CANTERBURY WORKSHOP EXPANSION

BM Tech Canterbury has expanded into the workshop next door. Eight years ago, when we moved to our current location on Canterbury Road, the size of the new workshop was a huge contrast from the old Box Hill site; Canterbury was so big!  However, it’s amazing how quickly we out grew it.  Our customer base […]

Warranty Woes

Too many people underestimate the value and importance of parts warranty. Some people nowadays are importing parts from overseas themselves. The problem is that you don’t know what the quality is like. Countless companies who sell on web sites like eBay claim they sell original equipment manufactured (OEM) parts, only to find out that the […]

Cost of Parts Dropping

The rising Australian dollar, particularly against the Euro currency, is finally beginning to make an impact on BMW parts prices. We are seeing the cost of regular service parts like filters and brakes, coming down, and it’s not just the common parts, even odd items like computer modules etc. are also reducing in price. Unfortunately […]

Victorian Roadworthy Certificates Changes

This year, Vicroads has radically changed the way we check and process vehicles which need Roadworthy Certificates (RWC). The new process involves extensive body structural checks and the new task of taking photographs of each vehicle to provide proof and authenticity in the preparation of the report. This extra cost for you (and extra work […]
