Top 4 Benefits of Buying a BMW

BMW Specialists - Auto Tecnhik

Here at Auto Technik, we not only maintain and service all things BMW, but we are passionate about the BMW brand itself. We often have customers come through to our workshop asking us for advice about buying a BMW. Well, we’ve compiled the following list on the top reasons you should invest in a BMW if you are thinking about. After all, a BMW no matter what model is still a BMW! And there comes a certain prestige associated with this vehicle.

4) Safety Features

BMW’s are commonly known as being a luxury car, with many added features and extras. However, with this comes a luxury feel of safety within the vehicle also. There are multi safety features within the car itself that minimize the feel of an impact. And as technology advances further, features like blind-spot warning controls will further emphasize the safety features within your BMW.

3) Longevity and Durability

One of the things that we often hear from people is how BMW’s are expensive to maintain. Whilst this may be true to a certain degree, the truth is that if you look after your car well, it most likely will not need too much expensive maintenance… in other words, do not drive like a maniac! Or you will incur the costs. By driving safely, you not only ensure your own safety and others, but you are effectively keeping the car in the same shape you brought it in.

2) Better Investment…

…. than many other vehicles in terms of an investment. Whilst its true that a car’s value depreciates from the moment it leaves the showroom, there are vehicles that do not lose too much value compared to others. A BMW is an example of this. Depending on how well you maintain your vehicle, it will serve you well and long and not loose its value considerably.

1) Status Symbol

A BMW can go along way to giving someone a first impression of you. But this goes way beyond anything materialistic. If you spend a lot of time in your car for example, you want something that is comfortable and enables you to enjoy the ride. A BMW goes a long way to doing this, even in those times where you may be stuck in traffic! What better way to spend that time than in the comfort of a luxury car like a BMW.

We hoped this article has helped, and don’t forget, we are BMW Specialists in Leicester, so get in touch with us for all your BMW needs.


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

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.
