Having accurately aligned wheels is the most crucial step of balancing the wear and performance of the tyres on your BMW or MINI. In fact, getting proper wheel alignment should be part of your routine and preventive maintenance. At BM Repairs and Servicing, we realise that your BMW vehicle deserves the first-class service. When it comes to BMW wheel alignment Melbourne, we will align the wheels to the manufacturer-recommended specifications, ensuring the highest level of accuracy in our service.
Why Are BMW Wheel Alignments Important?
When your wheels and tyres are out of alignment, driving your BMW or MINI causes uneven tread wear and you will end up replacing the tyres very often. On the other hand, driving on properly aligned wheels will ensure the safety of your vehicle, increase the mileage and give you a smooth ride. Getting regular wheel alignments from BM Repairs and Servicing can make your tyres last longer and guarantee your safety on the road.
How Do Wheels Come Out Of Alignment?
Your wheels may come out of alignment when you
- Hit a pothole
- Run over a curb
- Get into a fender bender
- Put a new set of tyres
So, whenever you have new tyres installed or you hit something hard, bring in your vehicle to BM Repairs and Servicing for a wheel alignment check.
When Should You Get Your BMW Wheel Alignment Checked?
If you feel that your BMW is pulling to one side, vibrating or shaking while you are driving around, you must definitely stop by our BMW & MINI service centre to have the wheel alignment checked. It is also important to inspect the alignment of your wheels if you notice the uneven wearing of your car tyres. In fact, even if you are not noticing any warning signs, it is really worth to get them checked at least once a year.
So, if you have a question about our services or would like to make an appointment, get in touch with us by dialling 0481 852 222.

What if you could have unprecedented levels of control over your BMW’s operating system? What would you change? Perhaps you’d customise its locking function to include automatic window and sunroof closure. Maybe you’d get rid of the annoying seatbelt alarm. You might hack media controls to allow passengers to watch movies on long journeys.
All of these things are possible with the help of the specialists at BMW Repairs and Servicing who are capable of providing BMW coding in Melbourne. Our team works at the cutting edge of vehicle customisation service to bring drivers brand new options as well as conduct BMW control units repairs. It’s a complex process, but we’ll do our best to give it to you straight.
What Is BMW Coding and Why Should You Want It?
Our BMW coding – often referred to as BMW DME replacement – is the process of altering a vehicle’s computer software to unlock new features. As with an iPhone, modern cars come pre-programmed with more capabilities than you think.
Due to location specific restrictions, many features stay locked inside a vehicle’s operating system. They’ve just been turned off by the manufacturer. BMW service coding accesses and alters the operating system to unlock all of these possibilities. Just as a computer programmer alters code to create new apps, we can alter your BMW’s code to unlock its hidden features.
Some Reasons to Consider BMW DME Replacement
The following is a list of reasons why you should consider our services for BMW coding in Melbourne:
- Disable iDrive Disclaimers– Do you need to see a disclaimer every time you start your vehicle? We didn’t think so. We can make it disappear.
- Mute Seat Belt Alarms– You’re a grown up. You don’t have kids. Those seatbelt warnings are more frustrating than they are helpful. Coding can turn them off.
- Activate the True Speedometer– The speedometer you’re seeing is a factory default designed to overestimate your true speed. Our team can reactivate the real one.
- One Click Window System– Keep forgetting to roll up your car’s windows? Let us link them to the vehicle’s key fob so, every time you lock, the windows close automatically.
This is just a handful of the ways we can customise your car service with professional BMW control unit repairs and coding. At BMW Repairs and Servicing, you’re always in the driving seat.

As opposed to a BMW timing belt that is made of rubber, a BMW timing chain is a metal chain that is located inside of the engine. This component should properly be lubricated by the engine oil to ensure that the vehicle runs smoother. Whenever you use the engine, the timing chain will also be involved in the operation. It is the component which connects the crankshaft to the camshaft so that they all rotate together. To ensure the proper functioning of your engine system, your BMW timing chain needs to be replaced between 60,000 and 100,000 kilometres. If you own a BMW vehicle and suspect timing chain replacement may be necessary, bring your car in to BM Repairs and Servicing today.
Why Does the Timing Chain Need Replacing?
Over time, the timing chain stretches and wears out. The chain tensioner linked to the timing chain also wears out, leading to complete failure of the timing chain. If this happens, your BMW will not run properly. One of the major causes for the timing chain to wear out faster is the use of wrong oil. Using poor-quality oil puts extra load on the timing chain and prevents the proper lubrication of the engine, which in turn leads to timing chain failure.
How to Avoid Timing Chain Problems
In order to avoid timing chain problems, you must take proper care of your vehicle’s engine. It’s also important to have the engine oil and filter changed at manufacturer-recommended intervals. Using high-quality oil filters and engine oil will ensure that your timing chain lasts up to 300,000 kilometres or even longer.
Signs to Look For
Signs that signal the need for BMW N46 timing chain replacement (or replacement for another model) include:
- Your car backfires
- Your engine shakes
- Your vehicle works harder than normal
- Your vehicle has a rough idle
- Your vehicle will not start at all
If you notice one or more of these warning signs, don’t hesitate to visit our authorised BMW repair centre for timing chain replacement. Our BMW timing chain replacement cost is fair and competitive. Have a question for us? Call 0481 852 222 and talk to the BMW specialists now!
Is your BMW releasing white or bluish smoke through the tailpipe? If so, you may have a leaking valve stem seal. In fact, this has been reported as a common problem with the latest BMW models. As this is a very complicated task, it should only be handled by a professional and skilled team of mechanics. At BM Repairs and Servicing, we have factory-trained BMW specialists who have the skills and experience to perform BMW valve stem seals replacement.
What Are the Consequences of a Leaking Valve Stem Seal?
Valve stem seals are designed to prevent oil from entering the combustion area of the engine. When the seal begins to fail, oil makes its way to the combustion area, leading to a decrease in the lifespan of the catalytic converter, fouling of the spark plugs and improper combustion. When there is no proper combustion, it may lead to the misfiring of the spark plugs and other engine problems.
Why Choose Us?
At BM Repairs and Servicing, we are familiar with the problem and can provide an effective valve stem seals quick fix to prevent failure. Our mechanics have the training and tools needed to perform repairs in the most cost-effective manner. During the repair process, we will also inspect and fix other possible issues that may be present, saving you thousands of dollars in repair costs in the long run. In addition, our valve stem seals replacement cost is reasonable and competitive.
What Are the Symptoms of Valve Stem Seals Failure?
The following is a list of symptoms that may indicate valve stem seals failure:
- Increased oil consumption from the engine
- The on-board indicator detects low engine oil
- Blue-white smoke coming out of the tailpipe
- Smoke billowing at idle or in traffic
- Burning smell coming from your tailpipe or exhaust
- Clogging of catalytic converters
Besides hindering the vision of all the drivers behind you, the smoking tailpipe can cause expensive problems for your catalytic converter. In addition, your car will also fail in the emission test when you have it inspected. So, if you see bluish or white smoking coming out of the tailpipe, don’t hesitate to call us at 0481 852 222 and schedule a valve stem seals replacement appointment with our team. Whether you need a BMW E90 320I valve stem seals replacement or a replacement for another model, we can provide the assistance you need.
