Now that the temperatures are slowly rising, you’re probably thinking about all of the time you’re going to get to spend on the road or the track with your BMW, Audi, VW, or Porsche this year. While you might not be ready to get it out there quite yet (those April snow showers are no joke), now is a good time to start thinking about what you need to keep your car running as well as it can during the summer.
Think of summer services as the opposite of winterizing your vehicle. In order to ensure that your car is able to handle the conditions of summer (higher temperatures, less precipitation), there are a few changes you should make to really make the most of your time in your car. Read the rest of this blog entry to learn about a few services you may need to get your vehicle ready for the warm seasons.

No matter what time of the year it is, make sure that you are current on your oil changes. Having your oil changed on the schedule the manufacturer suggests is important for two reasons: first, it keeps your warranty valid, second, clean oil will help your car run better and it can prevent a lot of problems from developing.
Now that the temperatures are going up, your cooling system will be working a lot harder. If you store your vehicle over the winter or if you haven’t had it in the shop since winter started, it is a good idea to bring your car to the shop. We will check every part of the cooling system, including your radiator, the hoses, connections, and the coolant itself, to make sure that you won’t have to deal with overheating or a blown radiator.
When you have a high-performance vehicle, you know just how important good grip is. It’s the reason you have tires that are designed to grip the road perfectly. Now that winter is over, you can have your winter tires taken off and replaced with your high-performance tires!
Nothing is worse than sitting in your car and sweating as if you were standing outside. While your air conditioner isn’t going to make your car go any faster or better grip the road, it will make driving comfortable. If you notice a strange smell when you use your air conditioner or the cold setting never actually gets cold, bring your car in. We can recharge your AC and check to make sure nothing is going on inside your vents.
