Promote Shop EV Service Readiness!

As BMW begins rolling out several new models of its advanced EVs, why not make everybody who visits your shop aware of your readiness to be right on top of the new EVs.

Earth Shocks

Earth Shocks

A big part of that has always been due to great suspension designs that provide both agile handling and a compliant ride. Even in this age of computer controls, you can make sure your customers’ vehicles retain these valuable qualities

Mixing it Up

Mixing it Up

Now more than ever BMW owners are concerned about their fuel mileage as well as their impact on the environment. Part of BMW’s “Efficient Dynamics” movement is reducing emissions and still providing a vehicle that is a driver’s car. How are you going to keep your customers’ vehicles running efficiently?
