A Few Tips to Help You Revitalize Your BMW 735iL
You should never be ashamed of driving an old car like your BMW 735iL. Aside from practicality, you'd also be at peace knowing that you have a reliable ride that has been driven and tested through the years. But what if you can still improve its looks and performance, aren't you going to do it? Anyway, giving your BMW a boost is still going to be cheaper compared to buying a new car. So why not try these tips that could revitalize your BMW 735iL in the process?
- Make sure your tires are in good shape.
Tire condition greatly affects your car's performance and appearance. So if you want to improve the overall condition of your car, then your tires are one of the things you need to focus on. Regularly check if your tire treads are still well within the prescribed depth. If they are, then you can move on to tire pressure check. Each type of tire has a required amount of pressure in order for it to provide optimum performance. It's not just about whether your tires are flat or not, it's about having the right inflation and tire pressure. Just by ensuring that your tire treads and pressure are within proper levels, you have already increased your car's potential. But if you can spare a couple of bucks more, then a shiny new set of tires could definitely make your car look good.
- Look after your car's paint.
Car paint fades and becomes dull over time due to natural elements like the sun's UV rays, not to mention the scratches and dents it may have acquired either from your poor parking skills or from other people's recklessness. Either way, it's about time you look after your car's paint and finish. Touch up any paint damage or have those unwanted markings and dents fixed. Afterwards, you should consider getting your car waxed to protect the paint from being easily chipped off. A car wax won't just add protection to your car's paint, but it will also significantly improve its looks. And if you're not fond of car covers because they seem a lot of work to put up, think again. It may take some time to get used to, but if you regularly use a car cover on your BMW, then you're limiting its exposure to harmful elements such as moisture, bird droppings, and intense heat from the sun, therefore preserving your paint in the long run.
- Replenish all your car fluids.
Replenishing your car fluids is a textbook practice in car maintenance what with their importance in the operation of major automotive parts and systems. Regularly checking and topping up your engine oil, for example, is the best way to ensure that your engine components are properly lubricated. Consult your manual on how often you should check the levels of your engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, steering fluid, suspension's hydraulic fluid, and windshield washer solvent; top them up when necessary. Also take note of the schedule and interval of every oil change as well as the replacement of the said fluids, and stick to the manufacturer-recommended schedule unless you frequently subject your 735iL to harsh driving conditions.
