Top Ten Autumn Driving Tips

As the dark nights and Autumn weather starts to close in, its never too early to prepare for winter driving. Cold and wet conditions can have a huge impact on how your BMW performs. With warmer Autumns in the past, not many drivers have experience driving in cold, wet conditions. So take your time and consider our driving tips on the road this season:

  1. Prepare your vehicle, top up your screenwash before setting off
  2. Know your journey and should you not have Sat Nav, be aware of alternative routes you could take
  3. Ensure you have plenty of fuel in the tank to compensate for any required detours
  4. Use dipped headlamps in wet weather
  5. Increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front to compensate longer stopping distances
  6. Take your time when accelerating/decelerating to avoid aquaplaning 
  7. Know your brakes, ensure your brake pads have sufficient depth. This can be checked on a free vehicle health check by our technicians.*
  8. Ensure you have sufficient tyre tread and they are correctly inflated
  9. Invest in a set of Winter Wheels and Tyres, they make all the difference in temperatures below 7°c
  10. Keep a pack of essentials, just in case: Screen wash top-up, Top-up oil, Deicer, Ice Scraper, Phone charger, Spare tyre/tyre sealant
*Advance booking required.

Winter Tyres from only £960

Give yourself enhanced grip as well as peace of mind during the colder months with a set of BMW Winter Wheels and Tyres.

When the temperature drops and the roads get wetter, summer tyres no longer perform at their best. The rubber compounds get hard, resulting in a reduction of adhesion and handling. That is why 7°C is the signal for winter tyres. Only the special rubber compounds of winter tyres withstand the cold in order to maintain grip and guarantee a short braking distance. Make a timely change – and make the difference between a critical situation and a collision. As well as being safer, Winter Tyres also wear more efficiently than standard tyres in low temperatures saving future costs.

At all our BMW Centres we are here to help you make the most of your BMW throughout the year, whatever the weather.

Customer Feedback

One of the best 'car buying' experiences I've had. Tim took us through the entire process of choosing a vehicle, test drive, and negotiations thoroughly. I feel like we've ended up with a beautiful motor, and have good support there if we need it. Well done....a job done properly.
