Japan Earthquake and BMW Parts
Has the tragedy in Japan affected our ability to get parts for your BMW and MINI?
No. Fortunately for us, our BMW and MINI parts are German made and we are not experiencing any slow down or shortage of parts for repair.
The tragedy in Japan has had widespread consequences for “just in time” inventory for many auto makers. It is expected to also have an impact to the availability of auto repair parts for both US makes and Asian automakers. It was announced that a few US auto manufacturing plants have shut down due to shortages. It is expected that shortages will ripple through to the auto body and mechanical repair sector, eventually.
It may take years for Japan to recover from the magnitude of overwhelming destruction. Let’s keep their people in our thoughts and continue the generosity the US people have demonstrated.
