Every now and again, we receive visits from Eastleigh motorists who have tried to carry out their own BMW repairs or Mini repairs, or unofficial BMW servicing or Mini servicing; sometimes they’re upfront about their attempts, other times we can tell from the standard of work! While some automotive work can certainly be handled by a capable DIYer, other things should 100% not be attempted. This article runs over them.
So what do you do if you require BMW repairs, BMW servicing, Mini repairs or Mini servicing? Call Brystone of course! We’re the Eastleigh area’s local specialist for these manufacturers, and have far more experience with their vehicles than the average “generic” garage. So give us a call on 023 8066 1010 to discuss your requirements or book in an appointment with our friendly team.
If you’ve had a collision or in some other way damaged the body of your vehicle, resist the temptation to grab a hammer and a YouTube video to try and get the dents out yourself, or repaint/finish the car. Both BMW repairs and Mini repairs in this category require special finishes exclusive to these manufacturers, and perfect colour matching to avoid ruining the look of your vehicle. So don’t sacrifice your car’s aesthetics to save a few pennies! Make the short drive to us from Eastleigh and get the job done properly.
REPLACING A WINDSHIELD
For an amateur, perfectly positioning and sealing a windshield can be a total nightmare. Even the smallest error can put your safety at risk, as the glass could fall out while you’re driving, causing a nasty accident. Another risk is leaks in bad weather. Seek BMW repairs or Mini repairs specialists, like ours near Eastleigh, should your windshield be badly damaged and require replacement
We often encounter minor issues with transmissions when carrying out BMW servicing and Mini servicing for our Eastleigh clients. Some require minor tweaks, but the more problematic issues are almost impossible to handle on a DIY basis: they require specialist, commercial-grade equipment, a large workspace, and years of mechanical expertise. This makes it dangerous going to attempt these at home, and you’ll likely end up significantly out of pocket and needing us to put it right.
