BMW Oil and Filter Change

Bringing your BMW to AutoHaus of Boulder means you will always get a full and comprehensive oil service. More than your average oil change at a quick lube facility, AutoHaus of Boulder provides both conventional oil and synthetic oil dependent on your BMW’s engine. Turbocharged engines require synthetic oil to preserve the life of your car as the engine is designed to run with synthetic motor oil.

In addition to oil and filter changes, AutoHaus of Boulder will perform a full inspection of your BMW including topping off tire air pressure to spec and all fluids with factory grade fluids. Our BMW inspections don’t end there as we perform the appropriate factory maintenance check including lubing door hinges, cleaning sunroofs and cowl drains. Most importantly, we scan all fault memory and will always reset the ever-annoying factory service reminder. We pride ourselves on our work and want you to drive away feeling confident and safe.

BMW Driveability Problems

When it comes to being an BMW owner, one of the most frustrating things that tends to happen over time is that of having a dashboard light illuminate with no real indication as to what may be causing the problem. We drive BMW’s every day and understand how they should run and feel on the road. Our trained ASE technicians the ability to diagnose and fix and misfires or rough running that may occur with your vehicle over time.

From check engine lights to uncommon engine noise, AutoHaus of Boulder has seen or heard it before and can easily fix the problem. Surprisingly, you can be experiencing drivability problems without the check engine illuminated. That is why you can always bring your BMW to AutoHaus of Boulder, and we will check your BMW, giving you an honest evaluation of the current “state of tune” of your BMW.

BMW Brake Repair

We recommend that you get your brakes checked at least once a year or especially before going on a long road trip. If you hear any weird or unusual noises when you hit the brake pedal, it’s time for a check-up. We provide this check “free of charge”.

Depending on how you drive your BMW, we recommend bringing your BMW into AutoHaus of Boulder every 30,000 to 60,000 miles to get your BMW’s breaks inspected. AutoHaus of Boulder offers all original equipment, OE and aftermarket options to repair your BMW’s breaks.

Recommended by almost all manufacturers including BMW to have a break fluid flush performed every two years. Over time, brake fluid collects moisture that lowers the boiling temperature, which is critical for your system to provide the needed brake pressure to stop your vehicle.

BMW Used Car Evaluations

We provide BMW used car evaluations for customers looking to buy a used car. It is important to have a vehicle checked before you buy it, so you do not get a vehicle that as unknown lingering issues. We perform a comprehensive inspection of the vehicle to give you as much information as possible so you can make an educated decision on the car you would like to buy.

We look at every component possible, scan all electrical systems and give you our best opinion on the current condition of the vehicle.

BMW Alternators, Batteries and Starters

If your BMW isn’t starting or charging, you will not be driving it. The battery provides the power to the starter and electronics when you turn the key to start your BMW.

The starter, once provided with power, is what turns your engine over to get it to start-up and run. Alternators provide the power to the vehicle and keeps the battery charged once the engine is running.

These systems should be checked yearly, especially in Colorado where we get extreme temperature changes. We provide free inspection for your starting and charging system so you can have the peace of mind that your BMW will start-up every time especially in the frigid winter temperatures.

BMW Extended Warranty Repair

Many of our customers have an extended warranty that they purchased either when their factory warranty expired or when they bought their BMW used. We can work with any after-market extended warranty and make sure your BMW continues to run properly without taking a bite out of your wallet or taking it to the dealer.

BMW Muffler’s and Performance Exhaust Systems

Is your BMW louder than it should to be? If so, then it is time to bring your vehicle into AutoHaus of Boulder to get inspected. Offering both exhaust repair for rusted out or broken exhaust systems and APR performance options. We can repair broken exhaust welds and blown out gaskets, getting you back on the road feeling confident in driving your BMW.

Most manufacturers including BMW leave plenty of room for improvement when it comes to horsepower and torque. That’s not to say that these vehicles are poorly made, but many companies will choose the least expensive alternative when it comes to items such as exhaust systems.

An aftermarket performance exhaust from APR can free some of the power in your engine. APR performance exhaust systems allow a quicker and more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape. This means your engine “breathes” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster, resulting in a more efficient engine that creates more power when you buzz over the mountain passes.

AutoHaus of Boulder can install performance APR and other brand’s cat-back and turbo-back exhaust systems to increase the performance of your BMW.

BMW Steering and Suspension

Your BMW’s steering and suspension should be inspected yearly or before you go on any long road trips. At AutoHaus of Boulder, we perform this every time you bring your BMW into our shop for free as this is an apart of our Free Safety Analysis inspection for all of our customers.

Our trained ASE BMW technicians will check your suspension components including tie rod ends, steering rack, power steering pump and hose, power steering fluid in addition to control arms, bushings, ball joints and wheel bearings. If you hear weird noises when you drive over bumps or simply turning into a parking space, bring your BMW to AutoHaus of Boulder, and we will find the problem and fix it.

BMW Fuel System Service

BMW’s have very complicate and advance fuel systems, and it is recommended to get these checked and maintained regularly, keeping BMW’s at peak performance and fuel economy.

Did you know that most of today’s vehicles have two fuel pumps? One fuel pump is in the fuel tank, and the other high-pressure fuel pump is bolted to the engine.

We check these fuel pumps and the entire fuel system clean the system with fuel injector cleaner with each service. We will recommend which service is due for your BMW dependent upon your mileage and past service history.

BMW Coolant Systems

Coolant and oil are the lifeblood of any engine. Just like brake systems, coolant should be flushed every two years. We can pair a coolant flush with any of your BMW factory maintenance service to keep you up-to-date and ready for those extreme temperatures.

Our trained ASE BMW technicians will inspect your entire cooling system and hoses of your BMW every time you bring your vehicle in for service.

BMW Air Conditioning Service

Air conditioning is a key component to staying comfortable in the scorching summer heat. We can service your BMW’s air conditioning system by evacuating the system to measure the amount of R134 Freon that is in the system; that allows the air conditioning system to cool properly.

Our service also includes re-charging your air conditioning system with the specified amount of Freon and installing dyed oil so that if there is a leak in the system in the future we will have a trail to follow to find the leak.

Our trained ASE BMW technicians will test your system to make sure it is cooling to the proper temperature. If there is a problem with the system, our technicians are trained to diagnose the issue and replace the appropriate components to fix your BMW’s air conditioning system.

BMW Timing Belt Service

One of the most important components of your BMW’s engine, the timing belt keeps the internal components of the engine spinning in perfect correlation with each other. If the timing belt in your BMW breaks, the result causes the valves and pistons to contact each other, making them bend and possibly crack which leads to a very expensive repair.

To prevent this, AutoHaus of Boulder can replace the timing belt and associated components before they become an issue. Depending on your BMW’s service interval, timing belts should be replaced every 75 to 90 thousand miles. Replacing your BMW’s timing belt is extremely important and should not be postponed past the recommended service interval.
