BMW repair and service – Without the dealership prices!

We all know, owning a BMW or any other luxury car comes with its advantages and disadvantages. You may be the envy of your friends as you drive around in your 30k BMW or Mercedes, but as soon as there is a mechanical fault with the car, it can be a very costly fix! Many people are under the impression that they can only get their car serviced with the original dealer, however, you’d be surprised at how much you can save by doing a little bit of research.

There are many independent specialists for BMW in and around Leicestershire who can offer you the exact same service but at a fraction of the price! However, it’s always worth doing thorough research on the company and ensure they are trustworthy and fully qualified for the job.

We’ve put together some of the main reasons why you should consider independent BMW specialists to look after your pride and joy!

Cost difference

You’d be surprised on how much you could be saving by taking your car to a specialist garage rather than the dealership. At a dealership, you’ll be expected to pay premium prices for even a simple diagnostic or fix.

Quality of service

Most people assume they would only get the best service from a dealership. However, independent specialists would have trained staff on board in order to give you the highest quality service and care. At AutoTechnik we have an abundance of experience in the field so you can be assured your vehicle is in safe hands at all times.


Drivers are often under the impression that independent garages would not be able to get hold of original manufacturer parts for repairs. However, that is not the case. Independent garages can source the parts you need, usually at a cheaper rate, or they can offer you alternative parts that work just as fine.


Try searching in your local area for specialist dealers that can take care of your car, so you are not having to travel out of your convenience for simple repairs.

If you are looking for BMW specialists for repairs, MOT, diagnostics or car servicing in Leicestershire, then contact our team today.


I was referred to Auto Technik about 2 years ago and have been bringing my 325i to them ever since. Trustworthiness and professionalism are of utmost importance when selecting someone to do business with – the servicing of my cars is no exception.

Wez and his team have always demonstrated trustworthiness, professionalism and knowledge of the issues pertaining to my 325i. Over the course of 2 years, I have completed a variety of service issues including brakes, tune-up, regular oil changes, thermostat, radiator and more. In each case, I found Wez and his team to successfully diagnose and service my repair needs in a timely and efficient manner.

Wish I could find a way to describe how great my car feels each time I drive away from Auto Technik! No matter why I brought my car in, I always leave feeling like the entire car was serviced.

I recently had my vehicle serviced at Auto Technik BMW and MINI Specialists in Leicester and found the overall experience rather brilliant. I have had numerous BMW’s and been to many ‘BMW and MINI Specialists’ across the midlands but I found these to be particularly professional and thorough.

The pricing was unbelievably competitive and they advised me on all the extra items my car needed after carrying out a FREE Diagnostic Check.

The one thing I found unique about them was they offered me a Collection & Delivery service. My BMW was collected from work at 09:30 and returned; Diagnosed, Serviced and Valeted before my lunch break!

In a nutshell the service was superb, the staff were courteous and professional and they offered a service that was “outside of the box” with both the service and the collection & delivery which would benefit anyone with a BMW that needed any work doing to it.

I would highly recommend them to all who need their BMW or MINI serviced.

Thanks again for the excellent job you did in repairing my BMW. It’s running better than ever.

I really appreciate the professional way in which you conduct your business. Your years of experience definitely show. I’ll be back!

I wanted to thank you for providing excellent service during my two recent visits with my 2000 BMW M-coupe. It was refreshing to be able to leave my car in “good hands” with an obviously well trained BMW mechanic and know that all the service will be handled in a very professional manner

Great experience at Autotechnik – Easy transaction with no pressure. Great communications and a real pleasure to buy from. Stefan made buying our new BMW X5 a pleasure and took the time to answer all our questions and queries about the vehicle. Good follow up to check all was OK and that we were satisfied with our purchase.

Totally professional

Bought a vehicle which then developed a fault. Autotechnik couldn’t have been more helpful. Car was taken back courtesy car provided and regular updates on the work being carried out. The staff were always helpful and polite, and nothing was to much trouble. Especially professional during this difficult time faced by all.

Top quality service

Autotechnik are, by some distance, the best independent dealer I have used. Buying my third Mini , it is evident that these guys are in a different league. They are clearly very knowledgeable about Mini and BMW, and the whole experience of the sales process was smooth, honest and professional. Details matter, and things like a follow-up phone call a few days after buying are a nice touch. I would highly recommend them.
