Can a Regular Mechanic Work on a BMW?

If you own a Beemer, you’ll know exactly how much it means to you. You love your Beemer, always take great care of it and never mistreat it. And being one of the finest automobiles around, why wouldn’t you? Taking pride in your BMW is important. So, when it comes to servicing or repairing your pride and joy, where are you going to take it? Can you take it to a regular mechanic?

The answer is: yes, you can. However, if you’re not comfortable with that, and you don’t want to pay through the nose at the BMW dealership for repairs, then there’s a happy medium – visiting a BMW specialist mechanic. We’ll explain this happy medium a little further on in the post.

Should I take my BMW to a regular mechanic?
While you can take your BMW to a regular mechanic for some basic things such as oil changes and filter changes, there are other things for which you should definitely see a BMW specialist. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of BMW specialists rather than regular mechanics:

BMW specialists are, well… specialists
The key advantage of BMW specialists lies in their name: they specialise in BMW repairs and maintenance. This means that they know your model of Beemer like the back of their hands, have worked on countless others and have a history of successfully servicing and repairing BMWs. It has to be said that at a BMW specialist mechanic, your car will receive far more attention and better care than at a regular mechanic.

You may have to take it to a specialist anyway
Even if you take your Beemer to a regular mechanic for oil changes, brake pads replacements and other stock-standard procedures, there’ll probably come a time when that mechanic scratches their head and won’t know how to fix the problem. In that case, you’ll be referred to a BMW specialist like German Service Shop. If you don’t want the hassle of going between two mechanics, then you may as well stick with a BMW specialist.

Why should I avoid the dealership?
Taking your car to a dealership for repairs is a common mistake by any car owner. It’s convenient and seems like you’re in good hands. However, dealership repair prices are known for being far higher than any other mechanic. This means you can get the best quality service at a BMW specialist and it will cost you less than an average service from the dealership.

So, if you don’t want a regular mechanic or a dealership mechanic laying a finger on your Beemer, you’ve come to the right place.
