Driving a BMW is an experience that is unlike that of driving any other vehicle. In order to get the most out of your BMW, however, you have to make sure that it is in good repair. In particular, make sure to monitor the state of your BMW’s tires. After all, the condition of your car’s tires can have a dramatic impact on its performance. Here are some signs that your BMW needs new tires.
Worn Treads If you notice that the treads on your BMW’s tires lack definition and are worn, this is a sign that the tires need to be replaced. Treads help improve your car’s handling by providing valuable traction. Furthermore, treads also help keep you safe and improve performance by funneling water away from the tires and preventing hydroplaning.
Cracks and Irregular Bulges Sometimes when you drive over a pothole or hit a curb, the impact can cause internal and external damage to your tires. Often this damage manifests as cracks and bulges on the tire itself. While the damage might not be immediately apparent, you should have your tires replaced as soon as you notice any irregularities. Once your tires have cracks or bulges, it is only a matter of time before they fail altogether, potentially compromising the safety of everyone inside the vehicle.
Uneven Wear One of the more common tire conditions is uneven wear. Uneven wear occurs when one side of your tire is heavily worn, while the other side is not. Generally uneven wear occurs when you neglect to have your tires aligned. In order to avoid uneven wear, make sure to have your tires regularly inspected, aligned, and rotated.

Engine oil performs the essential function of keeping your European car’s engine sufficiently cooled and lubricated. Experts suggest that a car’s engine oil should be changed between 3,000 and 10,000 miles, depending on the type of oil used and the factory recommendations. Here’s what happens to a European car’s engine if you don’t get regular oil changes:
The Oil’s Lubricating Agents Will Wear Out Whether you have conventional engine oil or synthetic oil, the oil’s additives will eventually wear out. These additives, which include detergents and dispersants, perform the important function of eliminating rust, reducing friction, and cleaning the engine.
The Oil Will Get Dirty and Contaminate the Engine If you keep up with regular engine oil filter replacement every 5,000 to 10,000 miles for your European car, the filter will remove a great deal of debris and dirt that accumulates in the engine oil. But if you don’t keep up with oil changes, the filter will not be able to keep up with the amount of debris in the oil and will eventually clog. When this happens, the dirty oil will begin to contaminate the engine, which drastically reduces engine life.
The Oil Will Seize Up Your Engine After a few thousand miles past the recommended changing point, dirty oil will turn into sludge. And when sludge circulates through a European car’s engine, the engine will experience excessive heat and friction. With the added stress of dirt, contaminants, heat, and friction, the engine will seize up completely.
