Stay Safe! When To Book Your Car In For A Service

The winter months can take a toll on your vehicle, the icy weather conditions can affect your car’s performance and unfortunately, many car owners neglect the warning signs on when you should get your car serviced by a professional.

Servicing your car regularly can potentially save you money in the long run. Any problems or issues that are recognised early are generally cheaper to fix, plus it will increase the lifespan of your car and the value.

We understand that it can be difficult to recognise when your car needs to go in for a service, that’s why our team of experts have compiled a list as to when your car may be giving signs of a problem and when you should get them checked out!

Don’t Miss Your Annual Service!

The colder months can tighten peoples pockets, as most of us are on budgets. So it is understandable that it can be quite tempting to skip your annual car servicing appointment. However, skipping services may end up with bigger bills to pay in the future.

Failing to maintain and service parts can cause excessive wear and tear, which you will have to repair to keep your car operating safely on the road. Don’t miss your annual service, book your vehicle in today!

Keep An Eye On The Dashboard!

The dashboard of your car will likely tell you when somethings not right with your vehicle, most modern cars now have very advanced warning signals that notice problems early.

The dashboard warning messages can range from, issues with the engine, oil levels, safety warnings and tyre pressure… See our blog article here on the top reasons why your BMW check engine light will come on.

If an unknown warning light appears on your dashboard,  the best advice is to get it checked out straight away with your specialist garage.

Check Your Wheel Alignment!

Looking after your tyres is essential in your car servicing plan. Damaged Tyres are at a high risk of losing traction in poor weather conditions and can potentially cause a crash, you can never predict the weather, so make sure your tyres fit the required standard for your car.

Damaged tyres may also affect your vehicle’s wheel alignment.

Your vehicle’s wheels will become unaligned over time with the standard wear and tear of the road. Problems such as potholes and kerbs can damage your wheels and position them out of alignment.

The most obvious sign that your wheels need aligning is when your tyres will show signs of wear unevenly. If you notice that your car pulls to the left or right whilst driving this can also be an early indication that your wheels have become unaligned.

At Autotechnik we are Hunter wheel alignment specialists! Using the latest alignment technology we will give your vehicle a thorough check over and service, meaning you can drive away satisfied and safely. Contact AutoTechnik to book your wheel alignment 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.
