For those of us BMW lovers out there, we believe the driving experience is like no other. The way it hugs the curves and switchbacks on our California roads can be sheer exhilaration. Part of that excellent handling and feel depend on your BMW’s suspension being in good condition.

If you ever experience a shimmy or a clunk, (heaven forbid), you will want to get your suspension components checked out by a qualified BMW tech. Just a some of the parts that make up your suspension are your shock absorbers and thrust rod bushings. The bushings are a rubber type material that take the brunt of every bump, curb, or pot hole as you drive. By design, they are one of the “hardest working parts in show business”! Considering the work that they do, it is a wonder that they do not wear out sooner. But, over time they will eventually need to be replaced and if they had been marginal for a while, you will feel the difference.

It is great to hear someone tell us that their BMW is handling as if it were brand new. So whether you are driving to the office today or making it your get-a-way day, enjoy the road!
