Things to not do to your BMW.
Don't ignore symptoms or warnings the car is giving you, such as rattles, clunks and warning lights. It always costs more in the long run.
Don't let the fuel tank constantly run low. This shortens the life of the fuel pump and leads to expensive repair.
Don't only look at maintenance from a "mileage" stand point. Things wear out due to age as well.
Don't let fluid leaks remain in a state of disrepair. Several components will not tolerate being covered in fluid.
Don't drive through large water puddles. This can cause the engine to pull in water instead of air, and cause severe engine damage.
Don't accept or look for short cut repairs with inferior parts. Just because something is cheaper, does not mean it is a better value.
